Advanced Backpacking Trip
Thursday, August 27, 2020
For anyone with backpacking experience or a high level of fitness or a high tolerance for learning the hard way, we are offering a 5-day extended backpacking trip. This trip will help participants learn the finer points of planning an extended self-supported wilderness trip. Participants will help plan the exact route, plan food, and make many of the trip decisions. Fees include transportation, permit fees, sanitation supplies, food containers, basic first aid, and a facilitator. Fees do not include personal equipment or food. There are multiple pre-trip meetings so the group can make solid plans and be more involved in the decision making process. Participants need to be able to carry 35-45 pounds for 10 miles a day over rugged terrain.
Pre-trip meetings: July 16 and August 6 at 7:00 p.m. at the Community Recreation Center.
