About this Talk
Summary: In this presentation, I'll be sharing the 3 biggest mistakes hikers tend to make as they transition into multi-night backpacking AND how you can avoid those mistakes when you hit the trail!
Who is this talk a good fit for? This presentation is good for hikers and aspiring backpackers at all stages, but particularly those of you who are beginners OR are looking to take more ownership and leadership of your adventures in the backcountry (or even might like to go solo backpacking one day).
In this presentation I'll go over:
- The 3 biggest mistakes hikers tend to make as they start transitioning into multi-night backpacking and how to AVOID these mistakes so that you can have fun and safe on-trail adventures!
- The false sense of security people get from backpacking in groups (and why it can be dangerous) + why you should strive to be self-sufficient on the trail (even if you never want to go solo backpacking)
- The 3 CORE backpacking leadership "personas" you'll be able to step into once you decide to become self-sufficient on the trail
