Want to experience nature like never before? Don't know where to start?
This is an introductory class for those interested in the outdoor leisure sport of Backpacking. Just a disclaimer: This refers to outdoor hiking, camping and backpacking; not to be confused with foreign travel backpacking. This class will cover the most basic of skills and knowledge for being able to confidently plan and execute a successful backpacking trip. I will give advice on gear and practical knowledge based upon my experience as a guide and seasoned backpacker.
The main things we will cover in this demonstration lecture:
-Basic Trip Planning
-Basic equipment needed
-Leave No Trace Outdoor Ethics
-Cooking and food suggestions
-Basic Outdoor Safety
Things this trip will NOT cover:
Other Course Components:
-Good, Local camping Spots
My hope is for this to be fun and informative and different information than you would get at an outdoor store (I am not selling anything).
Although I will be handing out some notes, feel free to bring extra note-taking material
This class will cost $5 for course materials.
I have served as a leader for a number of backpacking trips with friends and have professional experience as a backpacking guide. With two years of sales experience in the Outdoor Recreation Industry, I posses an in-depth knowledge of gear and techniques used by the pros. I have everything necessary to teach this class, including all gear and demonstration materials as well as an effective, hands-on teaching style and a deep passion for the outdoors!
