Thru-Hike Seminar

Thinking of thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail next spring? If so, you probably know that only about one in four hikers who attempt this mega-adventure actually reach Mt. Katahdin. We want to help you with that.

Tuesday, November 20
KTP Camping Department

Join us as we discuss ways to gear up properly, even comfortably, while keeping your pack's base weight at or near 10 lbs.

Whether you are planning a thru-hike or just want to find new ways to lighten your load, this seminar is a great place to gather practical information and to get your questions answered.

This fun and informal forum will include a chance to win hiking related prizes, so pay attention! Seminar attendees will also receive a special discount valid on select gear the night of the seminar.

About the instructor:
Fred "Gizmo" Lesswing recently completed the A.T. with a 10 lb. base weight and is a self-confessed "gear junkie". 

This class is free and open to the public. To reserve a space, please email, call 1-888-KTP-MAINE or stop by Kittery Trading Post and sign up in person at the Customer Service Counter.
