Class IconJan 27 (Sat) Backpacking 101 Class

Learn essentials of backpacking--what it's like, what you need to bring and what you don't need. This class is for never-ever backpackers and also people who want to update backpacking gear or skills. 


(replace this text with a short description of the image)Volunteers with decades of experience leading trips will present a comprehensive range of backpacking topics with candor--packs, tents, food, what to wear, water treatment and lots more. They'll share tips to improve your comfort and keep gear affordable. Unlike stores that offer basic classes, we're not selling merchandise. 

This class will be particularly helpful for new backpackers on the Labor Day trip to the Pecos Wilderness, the February trip to Big Bend National Park or other outings in 2018.  We'll schedule at least one fall outing with spaces reserved for people completing the August 12 class. 

Location: Whole Foods Market, Preston Road at Forest Lane, Dallas (map). The class is upstairs in the community room.

Time: 10:00 am to 4:00 pm. Buy lunch downstairs at the deli or bring a sack lunch. 

Cost: $35 for Sierra Club members, $40 for non-members. You can register and pay on-line here or you can show up and pay at the door if class space remains available. Interested or have questions? Please contact the class coordinator.
