Backpacker Magazine, the authority on outdoor adventure, is bringing its widely-celebrated Get Out More Tour to the Mast General Store in Boone, NC on Thursday, May 11 at 6:30 p.m. Backpacker’s ambassador, Randy Propster, will visit Boone as the Tour makes its way to 60+ venues across the country over a 7-month period, inspiring tens of thousands of hikers and backpackers to get out and explore the great outdoors!
Propster is offering his seasoned advice via an in-depth, 75-minute seminar that will both inspire and educate participants about backpacking and outdoor adventure. He brings the pages of Backpacker Magazine to life.
This informative and fun seminar will cover a range of topics including:
- Backpacking essentials
- The latest in gear and apparel
- Survival skills
- Trail-tested tips
“I think the biggest thing people can take away from these seminars is awareness – awareness of the benefits of spending time outdoors and of the essential skills that allow them to feel safe and comfortable on the trail,” says Propster.
At the end of the presentation, there will be an opportunity for questions and answers and door prizes will be awarded throughout the event.
Parking is free after 5 p.m. in Downtown Boone. If you have questions, please call the Mast Store in Boone at 828-262-0000.
