REI asked me to give a presentation on my 7 day backpacking trip on the Pacific Crest Trail. I am so excited to share all the details of my trip from photos, to challenges, mistakes I made and so much more!

Not only did I get to have the experience of a lifetime hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, but REI has asked me to give a presentation about being a first time backpacker! I'm not being paid. REI is not making any money. They just thought me being a beginner backpacker, I could offer some insight into what it took to get me on that trail. I'll be sharing all that it took to make this trip possible and stories from the 75 miles of total butt kicking and pure joy that I experienced.

If you've been dreaming about backpacking, this is the perfect night for you to find out what I went through. If you're a beginner backpacker and want to do a longer trip like 7 days, this is for you. And even if you're not into backpacking but would love to hear about my trip and all the escapades that happened to me on those 75 miles, then plan on attending. Plus it's FREE!

WHEN: Thursday October 15, 2015
TIME: 6:30-8:30PM
WHERE: Boise Public Library, Main Branch. Hayes Auditorium
COST: FREE for non members and REI members. Please register even though it's free.
