Plus, we'll give you important notes on trail etiquette and Leave No Trace principles. Let REI help you understand what you need to reach your destination.

    I enjoyed the class. Always seem to learn a few new things each time. Great presentation. I'm curious for those that have mentioned it, would it help if we all met a few minutes beforehand? Just like you, I need to be able to get to the event and find myself a chair. Having people say they are disappointed that they didn't meet other members from the group has brought this to my attention. I met people and talked with a few of you tonight. With it being a class atmosphere, people are going to show up at various times, and sit in different areas, and so on. There will many events to actually get to meet others and introduce ourselves to one another.

    Great class. Wayne really knows his stuff. Wish they were doing the Basic 2 class.

    Very informative, things have come along way since mom and dad were scout leaders.

    I just checked and the class is now full. If you did not register with REI, there is not a spot for you, as they have room only for 45. Thank you to those of you that took the time to read the full write up provided above, and registered with REI in advance.

      This will help others to get to that same level of been there, done that.

      Yup, and cotton t-shirts make good fire starter when all else fails ;-)
