    I am interested in participating in this group, however I help teach dog obedience classes on Monday nights so I can't attend these meetings. I need to purchase a tent prior to doing overnights so I would love to have a discussion about the best tents. I'm currently looking at the Marmot Limelight 3-person. It would be primarily me and my dog going on adventures. Is this a dog-friendly group?

      haha! I figured your dog would be well mannered :)

      If you plan on having a guest, sharing the weight of the tent would be wonderful. Keep in mind a few things. How often will you have your guest with you? If a trip doesn't allow dogs on certain trails, do you want to carry the tent for just yourself. Would you rather have a 2 person tent and be tighter? There are many factor. What's your Katadyn filter to you own? There are many on the market. Have you tried looking on Amazon.com? Have you ever tried a platypus hydration system? I have their Hoser 2 and it has never failed me. http://www.cascadedes...­

      As far as stove, a pretty lightweight option would be the MSR pocket rocket or micro rocket. Small, lightweight and somewhat inexpensive. Their fuel canisters can be bought at any outdoor retailer.

      Hi Joy, we love having dogs accompany us on the trail! You might want to check out packafeather.com for lightweight stoves. They use alcohol as opposed to the fuel canisters. Also, I don't know what your budget is for a tent but check out Big Agnes. They make some very nice, lightweight backpacking tents.

    Being new to the group how do I know who to look for when I arrive?

      We will be in the private side room of the pub. Turn right once you get down the stairs. I will be there fairly early so you should see me.

    I am interested in getting more involved and doing some camping but am unable to attend this meeting. I am interested in the Discussion Topic: The Workout: Hike Farther, Hike Stronger. Is there any way that I could get this information? Thank you.

      Definitely Kerry, I will send you a PDF file that you can have. Would that work for you?
