Backpackers’ Clinic In The Park
April 28, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
In our efforts to help you continue your journey……
We’re planning a backpacking clinic to specifically help post WBC folks get more comfortable outdoors and even plan a summer trip of their own. It’s a way to jump start someone backpacking career as they move beyond WBC.
Shakedown Table: Bring your full pack as if you were taking a 5 day Sierra trip and have experienced backpackers review all of your gear. Maybe you’re bringing too much gear or maybe you’ll confirm what you should upgrade first.
This, Not That: Not into bringing all your gear but still need a few pointers on how to improve your kit. We’ll have several examples that will help you do better on your next adventure.
Backcountry Meals: Get another look at meal planning, backpacking recipes and food strategies. Done with Mountain House? Have we got some ideas for you!
Bear Can 101: You aren’t the only hungry thing in the mountains. Bear cans are a great way to keep the local fauna out of your food stash so learn a few tricks on getting the most food into them and how to fit one onto your pack.
