Have you ever thought about embarking on a backpacking trip lasting a month or more? Perhaps you’ve considered hiking one of the country’s several National Scenic Trails but don’t know where to go for information or have entertained it as a side thought, thinking, “Some day, I could see myself….” If you’re one of these people, come to this workshop and let me do my best to convince you that you need to go out and pursue these aspirations now!

I will give a brief overview of what long-distance hiking entails, touching upon issues of WHY HIKE, nutrition, weight (what to carry), resupply options, information sources, etc. For the remainder, and majority of the workshop, I will answer your questions about backpacking and long-distance hiking / thru-hiking.
