Stairs - Backpacking Training **Friday Evening Pub Edition**

** Friday Evening Pub Edition **

I need to get some heavy training in for the West Coast Trail!!  Come join me & you too can train for your upcoming trips.

Depending on the group, we'll go for a pint afterwards to "rehydrate".

Bring a water bottle, wear your hiking boots and challenge yourself by putting some weight in your pack.

This is a great workout for lungs and legs.

THIS IS WEATHER DEPENDENT AND WILL BE CANCELED IF RAINING FOR SAFETY REASONS.

 

CHECK WEATHER FORECAST AND DRESS APPROPRIATELY.

You are fully aware that organizers are not professional guides and by your R.S.V.P you assume all responsibility for your safety and well-being.You are fully prepared with proper gear and you're physically fit to do this hike with the group.
