Join Inga Aksamit for a three-hour course covering basics and examining gear (no actual hiking involved in this instructional session). Examples of needed gear will be available in this introduction to modern, lightweight backpacking strategies. We'll touch on topics such as equipment, trip planning, navigation, food, water treatment, and common problems in the backcountry and how to avoid them. You don't need a heavy pack to enjoy a wilderness experience. If you've never backpacked, or its been decades, this is for you! There will be tips for all--from backpacking with children to considerations for seniors.
