Backpacking for Beginners Class

N/A | Nashville, TN N/A
Sun, Apr 23  1:00 pm
This will be an orientation to back country travel for beginning backpackers with an emphasis on starting out on the right foot and carrying a lightweight pack.  Please RSVP with integrity!

The class will give a beginning backpacker an overview of proper trail etiquette and gear needed to comfortably hike and spend an overnight in the backcountry. A number of “rookie” mistakes will be identified and solutions explained. A basic gear list will be reviewed in detail. Internet resources identifying hiking organizations, gear suppliers and hiking trails along with a gear spreadsheet template for attendees to fill in as they build their backpacking “kit” will be provided electronically (included for all attendees as part of the class fee).
