Intro to Backpacking

An Intro to Backpacking is probably like an Intro to Psychology course. You learn a few things from a weird old guy with gray hair and then you go and hike around in the woods for a little while. (Incidentally, I took Intro to Psychology at the esteemed University of Dark Alleyway.) 

We will be going to Nordhouse Dunes, (ironically named for the complete and utter lack of Nords, Houses, and Dunes) where you will learn the basic skills of backpacking, including:

-Putiing on a backpack


and much more!

Coming on this or the next Intro to Backpacking is required to come on the Alleghenies trip, and therefore by the Transitive Property, it is required to come on the Red River Gorge Trip. You also must pass a backpacking gear check in order to come on this trip. Talk to your patrol leader today and ask if Intro to Backpacking® is right for you.
