Intro to Backpacking

Have you ever wanted to walk deep into the forest carrying everything you need to survive on your back? Then let us show you the way. When you start backpacking, the greatest thing to remember is an old adage that says “ounces make pounds and pounds make pain.” Our goal is to avoid as much pain as possible. We will discuss lightweight and sensible equipment, food and clothing. We will also share certain principles all backpackers must abide by. This class will prepare you to set out into the wilderness with the education and confidence needed to survive in the wild.
