Backpacking Basics - Free Presentation Portland REI
I am posting this event that is really being put on by REI because I know many of you will be interested in this and it's free but keep in mind - it's an REI event and you have to register with REI to go. As of today there are still 21 spots open!!! If someone wants to host for our group it will help our members meet with each other at the event. Otherwise you will have to email each other ahead of time if you want to know how to find our meetup members at the event.
