Have you ever asked yourself these questions: What do those hikers have in that backpack? What are the basics I need to get started? What will all that gear cost? How much weight can I carry? Where can I learn backpacking Skills? This presentation will cover all these topics and more. We will also provide an update on the trail clearing efforts on the Powwow trail in the BWCAW, and provide information about upcoming spring trips to the Powwow.
