Informational Meeting and social hour -REI Oakbrook

  • REI

    17 W 160 22nd St, Oakbrook Terrace, IL (map)

    41.847549 -87.961418

  • We will be upstairs in the offices/classroom -walk to the back of the store past the bathrooms. Go through the door marked "employees only" and you will see stairs to the left. Walk up the stairs and you should find us there.
  • Do you have questions about backpacking? Want to find out more about the trips that we do? Need help building a gear list?  Then come to the informational meeting at 6:30 pm the REI store in Oakbrook. (Wewill be located in the offices upstairs).  We will go over all of this and answer any questions you have. We will also be discussing upcoming trips and bootcamps, and "leave no trace" principles.

    I can also be there earlier so if anyone wants me to help them shop for gear I would be more than happy to help you out.  Just shoot me an email or add a comment.

    Here are some gear lists to get you started. Please read them to familiarize yourself with what you will need. I will not be able to cover all of this during the meeting so it helps if you have a basic knowledge and use the meeting time to ask questions.

    We will be meeting afterwards at Bar Louie (just down the street from REI to the west) to meet some fellow backpackers and have some dinner/drinks.
