October 18th – Backpacking 101 at Whole Earth Provision Co.

Backpacking is camping to the max. It enables you to find those once in a lifetime, National Geographic worthy vistas and take the path less traveled! It is about finding your inner John Muir and taking only what you need. Backpacking is the ultimate adventure.
One of the big mistakes is over packing. We admit to a special set of skills for fitting an outstanding amount of objects into our purses and a backpack is no different. However, like life, backpacking is all about balance and the trick is to keep your pack light enough to carry while still having everything you need.
Join us at Whole Earth Provision Co. We will have a packing demo and weighing-in session to demonstrate live the value of choosing your gear carefully.

Topics Covered:
- Food and water needs and options
- Backcountry toilets and beyond
- Building up to carrying your pack
- How to pack your pack
- What you need in your first aid kit
-
