Join us in person if at all possible because we have a very cool giveaway compliments of Whole Earth Provision, an Optimus Crux Weekend HE Cook System with a fuel canister & meals! Plus, 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.

 

Topics Covered:

- 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 around potential predators

- How, where and why to hang your personal effects and food

 

You'll also be able to download the free #10Essentials for Backpacking 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 Optimus Crux Weekend HE Cook System and fuel.

 

Before you take it on the trail, join us for the evening chat. RSVP at www.BayouCityOutdoors.com . Additional info call 713-524-3567 or e-mail to info@bayoucityoutdoors.com

FAQs

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event?

Typically most BCO events are for adults.  But, we do love kids.  If you believe your child is capable of keeping up with the group, no problem.  AND if this is a bike ride they MUST wear a helmet.  Questions?  Contact us at info@bayoucityoutdoors.com 

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

We add parking details to the Event descriptions.

What can/can't I bring to the event?

If the temperature is above 80 or it very clearly says "No Dogs" then please don't bring your dog.  We LOVE dogs and only make this rule if we feel there could be a safety concern (for the dogs of course:).

BIKE: If it is a bike ride: Bring a helmet or borrow one from us.  Helmets are the single most important piece of gear you can have on a bike ride.  Anyway, any time you are wearing a helmet you must be having fun!  

Bring water.  Frequently our events are in the woods or out of the way.  Water is important.

HIKE: If it is a hiking event wear comfortable shoes.  Athletic shoes, hiking boots, running shoes, just be sure your feet will be happy.

SOCIAL: If it is a social event?  Wear whatever YOU feel comfortable in.  We are an eclectic mix of people with all types of interests and jobs.  People will come straight from work in a suit or jeans, straight from running or working out, and some of us even come cleaned up straight from the shower!  (and everything in between)

 

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

Yes - see love & friendship above!
