About The Event

Backpacking Basics is a seminar for ANYONE interested in learning more about:

• Being prepared for day hiking or multi-day trekking

• How to plan for a successful hike or multi-day trek- research, maps, communication, considerations

• What to pack/what to leave- gear lists and recommendations

• How to eat healthy and hydrated- food, snacks, and water

• Knowing how to hike with respect- trail etiquette, leave no trace, and ethics

• Getting fit to trek- how to train to stay healthy and safe on trail

• Integrating Yoga & Mindfulness on trail- making the most of your adventure

I’ll bring my backpack and some of my gear to demonstrate use.

Anyone who comes will be entered into a drawing for a free “punch card” to attend 5 of my other classes or fitness hikes 😊
