March 9: Backpacking 101
If you’re ready to take the leap from car camping and day hikes to overnight backpacking, this virtual workshop is for you! Outdoor Chattanooga’s Director and avid outdoorsman, Philip Grymes will cover everything from essential gear to pack, trip and meal planning to how to go to the bathroom in the woods. We’ll also provide a printable checklist so you don’t forget any essentials on your first trek out. Backpacking allows you to broaden your horizons beyond the car campground to enjoy a richer, more immersive outdoor experience. Workshop attendees will be entered into a random drawing to win a Navigation Map & Compass Course with our friends at REI Chattanooga.
