On Tuesday, March 28, Author and adventurer Rick Light will reveal how to shed pack weight without sacrificing comfort.
This free talk is part of the Los Alamos Mountaineers meeting, which starts at 7 p.m. and includes information about upcoming outings. The presentation will start by 7:15 p.m. at the Los Alamos Nature Center.
Rick Light will open your eyes to the freedom of hiking light. Whether you are an ultra-light or conventional backpacker, his years of trail experience will help you understand how to create highly organized systems inside your pack so can access objects in a second. He helps you understand what needs to be kept dry, how to keep those pesky rodents away, and how to create systems for food, water, and shelter. Rick’s book Backpacking the Light Way will be available for purchase at his talk.
