Backpacking 101 Workshop: Panelist Q&A

For this month's workshop, we want YOU to choose the topics of discussion! A panel of long distance, experienced hikers will be on site with their favorite backpacking gear, armed with the best stories about what it is like to live out of a tent. Come on by and ask any questions that come to mind. Just how often does a thru hiker manage to shower? How many pairs of shoes does one go through on the AT? How many calories can a hiker consume in one sitting after finishing a 20 mile day? Ask all this and whatever else comes to mind!

Participation in this event is FREE. The purchase of a beer (or two, or three) is encouraged. This workshop is open to experienced backpackers and newbies alike. We hope to see you there!

The great outdoors can be a wonderful place to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city and stresses from everyday life. However, spending time in the wilderness, especially doing overnight backpacking trips, can be difficult and unnerving, not to mention dangerous, to those new to the experience. Here at Blue Blaze Brewing, we want to encourage folks to get outside and experience the serenity of nature by providing tips on safety and backpacking techniques. We are excited to be hosting monthly backpacking workshops with experienced backpacker and Appalachian Trail thru hiker, Heidi Nisbett.
