Basic Backpacking Class
Jan 24, 2009
Interested in learning about backpacking? Join us as we display and discuss the gear needed for overnight backpacking. Well look at equipment, discuss optional equipment, prices, and where to shop. This is the first step in getting an active overnight backpacking program restarted with our group.
After the discussion, well take an optional hike on the nature trail of this great Mandarin Park.
