Hosted by seasoned Appalachian Trail thru-hikers, Preston and Marie, this clinic focuses on the do’s and dont’s of gear for an Appalachian Trail thru-hike and other long distance endeavors. They’ll will share lessons learned on what to bring and more importantly what not to bring when setting out on a journey longer than just the usual weekend hike. This clinic will include ideas on how to lighten your pack, maintaining gear on the trail, and making your own ultra-light gear to use in the backcountry. Participants attending who are getting ready for a long distance hike are encouraged to bring their own pack in for a “shakedown” evaluation.
All attendees will also snag 20% off any items they choose to purchase that evening – perfect for gearing up for your thru-hike.
