Lighten Your Load: Backpacking presented by Paul Magnanti
Sick of being a pack mule? Think you need 30 lbs of "stuff" to enjoy the wilderness? Then it is time to simplify your gear and lighten your load! Learn to pack minimally and still have a safe and enjoyable back country experience. Paul Magnanti, who backpacked the Continental Divide Trail in 2006, will lead this show/workshop of what gear and clothing works in a lightweight system. Three types of pack weights will be looked at: The Traditional, The Ultralight, and The Happy Medium. The show/workshop will not focus on any one brand of gear, but rather how to evaluate and modify your current gear as well as looking at a variety of alternatives. Lighten up! Show starts at 8:00 PM.
