Everything you need to know to keep your pack light and hit the trail
Join Bayou City Outdoors, HTX Outdoors & Whole Earth Provision Co. for Houston Outdoor LIVE - in person. Or, check us out via Facebook Live. Both events run simultaneously, and you can join the Q&A online or in person.
Join us in person if you can because we have a very cool giveaway compliments of Whole Earth Provision, and we’ll have refreshments provided by Karbach Brewing Co & snacks. The giveaway will be held at the end of the presentation.
Each week, we take a topic and drill it down as quick & deep as possible to get you up to speed and out playing in the great outdoors. We’ll take Q&A after the presentation to help guide everyone into outdoors mastery.
March 7 – Backpacking 101 at Whole Earth Provision Co.
Backpacking is camping to the max. It enables you to find those once in a lifetime, National Geographic worthy vistas and take the path less traveled! It is about finding your inner John Muir and carrying only what you need. Backpacking is the ultimate adventure.
One of the big mistakes is over packing. Some of us might have a special set of skills for fitting an outstanding amount of objects into our purses, and a backpack is no different. However, like life, backpacking is all about balance and the trick is to keep your pack light enough to carry while still having everything you need.
Join us at Whole Earth Provision Co. We will have a packing demo and weighing-in session to demonstrate live the value of choosing your gear carefully.
- Food and water needs and options
- Backcountry toilets and beyond
- Building up to carrying your pack
- How to pack your pack
- What you need in your first aid kit
- Filtering water with several different types of filters
- Staying safe from potential predators
- How, where and why to hang your personal effects and food
You'll also be able to download the free #10Essentials for Hiking Light that evening – we promise to get you Backpacking like the best! Everything you need to know, buy, skip, learn and carry in a single, awesome Tip Sheet.
Don’t forget to sign up for this evening at the event for the drawing of an ultralight backpackers guide, an ultrasil stuff sack, and an insect shield bandana.
