"""Ultimate Hiking Gear & Skills Clinic""

A backpacking trip consists of two distinct activities: hiking and camping. In this informative clinic, renowned long-distance backpacker Andrew Skurka will discuss the gear, supplies and skills necessary to make hiking fun, not an arduous chore. Skurka was named ""Adventurer of the Year"" by Outside and was described as ""a Superman among trekkers,"" by National Geographic; he is the author of The Ultimate Hiker's Gear Guide.

You will learn: (1) How to predict the environmental and route conditions you will encounter on a trip; (2) the best uses and limitations of lightweight equipment; (3) skills that will help keep you safe and comfortable with a minimum of possessions; and, (4) exactly what Skurka takes for a summer backpacking trip in the Sierra Nevada, and why."
