Welcome to the Tucson Backpackers,
AKA TUB (TUcson Backpackers)!
We are a friendly group of people and welcome new members! We all love backpacking, and Tucson is a great starting point for it - all year-round. Also, we do other outdoor and social trip activities: car camping, urban camping, canoeing/kayaking camping, hiking, socializing, sporting events, and classes/training.
We are always looking for your help and input, and new leaders and trips! Tucson Backpackers is ran by volunteers.
Make sure to drop us a email: email@example.com
We are happy to post your trips, preferably backpacking ones.
Tucson Backpackers common goals:
Be safe! - Respect the land! - Respect each other! - Have a good time! - Have a successful outing!
There are fees for joining this club. To attend any trip we require that you pay an annual (yearly) 'membership fee' of $5. This is basically an annual deposit to ensure commitment for your RSVP, plus helps offset group costs. See the 'membership option' tab below and the statement in the files section. Other than that, we just share the trip expenses as in permit fees and gas.
The most common way to get into backpacking is to start with hiking, check our your camping gear on a car camping trip, join a beginners' backpack, and then get hooked! A strong hiker might just jump right in, and being a good hiker is a prerequisite to make backpacking a truly enjoyable experience - for you and the others. So here are some local outdoor links to get in shape:
