On Saturday, May 20, 2017, fifteen participants attended KTA’s first Backpacking 101 Workshop: Part 1 gathered at Little Buffalo State Park to learn the basics of backpacking from three experienced backpackers and KTA Board members, Dave Gantz, Jim Foster, and Paul Shaw.
Topics included planning a trip, gear, and safety on the trail, among others. A cooking demonstration by Paul, taught the group that with the proper planning, food can be quite tasty in the backwoods! Those who attended Part 1 have the opportunity to put what they learned to the test by attending Part 2, a backpacking trip with the experienced leaders.
For planning purposes, if you are interested in attending a future Backpacking 101 seminar, please email Brynn at email@example.com.
