'Get Out More' tour by backpacker.com, coming to Omaha!

Brian Patton with the Backpacker magazine is on his "Get Out More" tour and will be presenting in Omaha, Nebraska on Friday, August 1. The event is free to attend and will be held at Canfields (8457 W Center Rd) at 7 pm. This event will fill up fast so get there early! The Get Out More tour gives a 75 minute presentation covering the basics of backpacking while providing information on the latest and greatest in gear. We also have tons of free gear that is given away to the people in the audience. Both him & his wife traveled all over the world and they share many stories from our travels during the presentation.

    I spoke with Brian & Kim the other day, they said that Omaha had the best turnout out of their entire tour so far!!! Our Omaha travel community even outnumbered Denver. Thank you to everyone who came out to the event, we have such a great community <3

      They really were. Some of their "mistake" stories were quite terrifying though.

    Is it too late to RSVP for me plus one? I know I'm late on this...

      It should be ok :) be sure to show up a bit early. They'll probably run out of seats but there's plenty of standing room

    • Cassy L.

      We're on our way...think there will still be seats with the group?

    I'm unable to attend, sorry was looking forward to this!

    I made a few phone calls and made 15 reservations, we now have an entire row being held for the Travel & Culture Group :) the only thing is that we need to get there a bit early because they'll start giving away all empty seats a few minutes before the event starts. Please be sure to RSVP for this event if you plan on coming, and if you aren't able to make it please change your RSVP
