Ultra Light Backpacking Workshop
Date: January 17, 2018
Time: 06:00 pm - 09:00 pm
Location: Camp Roanoke
It’s the hot topic in the world of backpacking these days – how to reduce the weight in your pack, but still be safe and comfortable. Join us for this show and tell session to get some ideas, learn some tricks and see what new gear and clothing is available. You’ll also learn about backcountry safety, clothing and body temperature regulation, footwear and foot-related problems, first aid on the trail, and food and nutrition on the trail. Our instructor has personally completed a thru hike of the Appalachian Trail (and several other trails!), so this is a great clinic for those considering the same! Bring your paper and pen, you are going to want to take notes! Pre-registration is required.
