Aug 12 (Sat) Backpacking 101 Class
Learn essentials of backpacking--what it's like, what you need to bring and what you don't need. This class is for never-ever backpackers and also people who want to update backpacking gear or skills.
Volunteers with decades of experience leading trips will present a comprehensive range of backpacking topics with candor--packs, tents, sleeping bags, food, what to wear, water treatment and lots more. They'll share tips to improve your comfort and keep gear affordable. Unlike stores that offer basic classes, we're not selling merchandise.
This class will be especially helpful for new backpackers on the Labor Day trip to the Pecos Wilderness, the February trip to Big Bend National Park or other outings through spring 2018. We'll schedule at least one fall outing with spaces reserved for people completing the August 12 class.
Location: Whole Foods Market, Preston Road at Forest Lane, Dallas (map)
Time: 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
Cost: $35 for Sierra Club members, $40 for non-members. You can register and pay on-line here or you can show up and pay at the door if the class space remains available. Interested or have questions? Please contact the class coordinator.
