»Beginner Backpacking Class - Make It Safe, Make it Easy, Make It FunBeginner Backpacking Class - Make It Safe, Make it Easy, Make It FunCome for a fun day of learning so you'll be ready to explore new special places this fall. This comprehensive class is ideal for learning all about backpacking or for refreshing old knowledge and skills. We'll cover backpacks, boots, clothing, tents, sleeping bags, cookware, food, water treatments, wilderness ethics and even short sessions to discuss men's and women's outdoor "issues".  Instructors are experienced Dallas Sierra Club leaders who can relate "wish someone had told me that before" tips from years of  trail and camp experiences.  We encourage questions and a hands-on look at outdoor gear and food items.  Participants get priority for weekend beginner backpacking trips designed specifically for those in the class. A class booklet and lunch of backpacking food are included.  Bring your refillable water bottle and any snacks you'd like. The class fee is $25 for Sierra Club members, $35 for non-members.  No reservations - just show up. Payment by CASH or CHECK is preferred. The class meets in the Guadalupe Peak Room, 2nd floor of the  Dallas REI store, 4515 LBJ Freeway, Dallas 75244 (north side of LBJ between Welch and Midway). Arrive around 10:15 AM to register and get settled. The class will begin at 10:30 and end about 4:45.

»Labor Day Bus Trip to the Weminuche Wilderness, ColoradoLabor Day Bus Trip to the Weminuche Wilderness, ColoradoThis trip has been canceled. The Columbine Ranger District of San Juan National Forest alerted the Dallas Sierra Club on June 24, too late to secure a permit to backpack at reasonable alternative locations, that it will not process a permit for the Club this summer, citing a moratorium on new permits. The Dallas Sierra Club had understood until June 24 that a permit held by the national Sierra Club would allow our use of the area. Devastation by two major fires in the adjacent Divide Ranger District of Rio Grande National Forest further limits opportunities for sufficient quality backpacking experiences to justify the bus trip.   We regret that a Labor Day bus trip will not be offered in 2014.
