Small Group Gear Shakedown

With the Newport State park trip coming soon, I thought it would be a good time to post a gear shakedown to give you the opportunity to go over your gear and ask questions in a small group setting before we head out -- this shakedown is open to anyone, though -- not just those going to Newport.

We'll go over every item in your pack together to make sure you have all the basic necessities and get ideas for what you may need, to make sure you're as safe and comfortable as possible. Even if you have all the gear you need, but would like to go over it to find ways to maybe lighten up, this is a good time to do that.

There are a lot of gear choices out there no one correct answer, but perhaps this will help make you feel better about your choices or gather some ideas.

Please bring your entire kit and we'll go through everything together, Max 4 people, though if a waiting list forms I may be able to talk another organizer into joining me. We'll meet near the Shelter at Southview park.

      if you can't make it let me know when you can... I expect to run more of these as demand dictates. I also notice you are signed up for high cliff in a few weeks... you may find after attending that that you don't need to come to this event.

    I'm a newbie with no gear - yet - and interested in attending to learn. How much time should I allow? I have a few other things going on that evening...

      A better event would be the April or May social meeting. One of those should have beginning for the topic. The shakedowns are really geared toward those wanting a final check of gear before heading out for a first trip.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
