Backpacking 101!! BRMS Mountain University!!



We are planning our first Backpacking 101 class in years!! Wahoo... we're really excited!!
We are planning on doing an evening Friday night class in April, and the following Saturday do an overnight hike/camping trip in First Landing State Park.
This is a great opportunity to learn the basics in a group of people with experienced teachers and guides to help you along.
We'll start by guiding you through what basic gear you will need, and compare your options in each. We'll go over things such as tents, sleeping bags, backpacks, what to wear on your body and feet, how to layer, and how to pack.

Then we'll get out and try out some of our new skills! In the field we'll be able to learn from different things we encounter...what happens if you get a blister? What if your pack isn't fitting right? How and where is a good place to set up a tent? What should we eat in the field to fuel ourselves properly? How to plan a trip and use a map and compass?
STAY TUNED FOR MORE DETAILS!!
