»Backpacking 101 Class - Be Adventurous!Backpacking 101 Class - Be Adventurous!Thinking you want to leave the crowds behind and venture into the backcountry but not sure how to get started? Or did you backpack years ago and want to update your gear or skills? Join us for a fun day of learning the essentials of backpacking--what it's like, what you need to bring, what to leave at home, and so much more!   Volunteer trip leaders with years of wilderness experience will present a comprehensive range of backpacking topics with candor--packs, tents, food and menus, what to wear, hygiene, water treatment and lots more. They'll share tips to improve your comfort, keep gear affordable, helpful hints from things they learned the hard way or wish someone had told them before they started on trail. Even a breakout session for men and women. We're not selling anything - only spreading our enthusiasm for helping others safely enjoy our special places.  This class will be particularly helpful for new backpackers on our fall trips, the February 2019 trip to Big Bend National Park and other outings. We'll also schedule at least one fall outing designed especially for those attending this class.   Location: Whole Foods Market, Preston Road at Forest Lane, Dallas (map).  Time: 10:00 am to 4:30 pm. Food available for purchase downstairs for lunch.  Cost: $35 for Sierra Club members, $40 for non-members. Includes handouts. We encourage and appreciate early sign up 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.

Part 1 is Wed., part 2 is Thu., both starting at 6:30 pm in the upstairs meeting room at Whole Foods Market, SE quadrant of Preston Road and Forest Lane. The fee for the two-night class is $35 for Sierra Club members, $40 for non-members (best class price around). An optional nearby hike for class participants will be offered for the following Sun. morning (weather permitting) so instructors can help you practice what you learned. Pay in advance by clicking here or pay at the door. Bring a compass if you have one. If not, we'll have an extra you can use and we'll advise what to look for when you buy your own. Both sessions will run until approximately 8:45 pm.
