Backpacking 101 Class - Saturday, September 15

BackpackersWant to be adventuresome and explore amazing backcountry areas? Come to this popular, interactive class designed for never-ever backpackers and people who want to refresh backpacking knowledge and skills. Dallas Sierra Club trip leaders with decades of backpacking experiences will present a comprehensive overview of backpacking topics, including packs, boots, tents, sleeping bags, food and cooking, clothes, wilderness ethics, sanitation and more. We'll include tips we wish someone had told us sooner to make backpacking more comfortable and less expensive. 

Place:  Whole Foods Market, southeast quadrant of Preston Road and Forest Lane, Dallas, upstairs meeting room.  

Time: Saturday, September 15. The class begins at 10:00 AM and lasts until about 4:30 PM, with a break for lunch. Please arrive early to sign in and get settled.  Buy lunch at the deli downstairs or bring your own and eat in the classroom.

Price: $35 for Sierra Club members, $40 for non-members.  Online pre-registration using a credit card is encouraged and appreciated (click here) or you can just show up pay by cash or check at the door (you don't need to pre-register).

If you already have some gear and questions about using, packing or replacing it, bring it with you and we'll do our best to resolve your questions.
