This is when we release our trips to the general public. Trip leaders will be present to promote their trips and to answer questions. Dues-paying members did have the first chance at sign up prior to this time but there still will be lots of openings. Once you see a trip that you like you can then join the club on the spot and then sign up with a deposit. Here is a link to the Event - read about it and RSVP: Public Rollout

March 23, 2019 - 9:30 AM to 1:00 PM: Annual Beginner Backpacking Class
This will be our Annual Beginner Backpacking Class / seminar held at Holliday Park. Over the course of 3-4 hours you’ll get a glimpse of what backpacking is all about. Close to 20 presenters will “show and tell” …… equipment, food prep, destinations, and “how to”. On that same day we will release a number of beginner overnight trips that you can sign up for only a $25 fee. These overnight trips will be held on a weekend during the spring at locations within Indiana. The trips are “teaching trips” and will be led by experienced leaders.
More details will be released soon....
