Intro to Backpacking

Have you ever wanted to adventure deep into the forest with everything you need to survive being carried on your back? Let us show you the way. When you start backpacking the greatest thing to remember is an old verbiage that says “ounces make pounds and pounds make pain.” This is something we are going to help you avoid. We will do this by discussing lightweight and sensible equipment, food and clothing. We will also share with you certain principles all backpackers must abide by. This clinic will prepare you to set out into the wilderness with the education and confidence needed to survive in the wild.
