Backpacking 101 – Session Two: Packing/Gear
April 20, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This is event two of a three part series to provide confidence to help you enjoy a backpacking trip adventure.
The discussion will be led by library staff and friends of staff that have a combined total of more than 100 backpacking trips logged. Event two will cover the gear and how to pack for a backpacking trip. Everyone has their “systems” and this is will be a fun evening to hear some tricks. The presenters will bring their loaded packs and go over what they take on a trip and why.
** Extra fun ** we will have our loaded backpacks on hand and share what we use. This will be an opportunity to see what fits into a pack and what the weight is.
Bring your questions and any fears that you might have. Backpacking is an amazing way to explore our public lands and Montrose is a perfect basecamp.
Special note: this is a three part series however if you miss one of them then that is just fine. The topics are separated out but do not necessarily require you to attend previous sessions if you are unable to attend.
