Backpacking 101 Class

* * * * *   THE CLASS IS AVAILABLE ONLY TO PAID MEMBERS!   * * * * *

Since there is a lot of interest in backpacking, here is another class. We will meet for a couple hours and learn some of the basics. We will cover the following subjects:

- trip planning

- gear

- fitness

- basic skills.

We will also plan a weekend backpacking trip to practice the new skills and learn more.

The class meeting location will be provided through email before the class, therefore make sure that you enabled Meetup emails.

Since the class is held outside, it is weather depended and it could be rescheduled if there is rain/thunderstorm in the forecast. Therefore check the event page for possible updates.

Hope to see you there,

Rich

    Thank you to Rich for taking 2 hours of your holiday weekend to do this for us! It was great information - and Great War stories too.

      Cindy, I would like to go biking tomorrow after the class. I don't know the park well, though so I have printed a map from the link above. Hope you can bike as well as others who may be interested.
