Want to try baxkpacking but are not sure how to start? Come join us for a demonstration and orientation which will teach you what you need to know to get started. We’ll meet Saturday April 23, 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM at the Brandywine Creek State Park Hawk Watch parking lot where we can enjoy a nice outdoor setting and get some hands-on experience. We’ll cover such topics as equipment selection and needs, organizing a backpack, trail cooking and water purification, clothing and shoes, and more. Not to mention what to expect on a Wilmington Trail Club two- or three-day backpacking expedition. Join us at the park with WTC members who love to backpack. You might even score some free or inexpensively priced USED gear club members are willing to part with.
