Andrew Skurka’s Hiker’s Gear and Skills Clinic

Saturday, February 23 by JerryFoster

Andrew Skurka is coming to Pennington 7-9pm on Friday, March 22 to teach a long distance hiking gear and skills clinic. WWBPA has purchased a block of tickets ($5 ea.) from the sponsoring scout troop – send us an email at [email protected] if you’d like to attend.

According to his website:

Skurka is one of the most accomplished backpackers in the world, most well known for his 4,700-mile 6-month Alaska-Yukon Expedition, the 6,875-mile 7-month Great Western Loop, and the 7,775-mile 11-month Sea-to-Sea Route. He has been named ?Adventurer of the Year? by the National Geographic Society and by Outside, and ?Person of the Year? by Backpacker.?He is the author of The Ultimate Hiker?s Gear Guide.

A backpacking trip consists of two distinct activities: hiking and camping. In this instructional clinic, renowned long-distance backpacker Andrew Skurka will discuss the gear, supplies and skills necessary to make hiking more fun and less work, without compromising your safety or your comfort in camp.

Hope to see you? there!
