Join me for a late afternoon weighted hill workout before the Pack Shakedown! We'll repeat the North 30th Street hill and parallel roads as many times as we can. We plan to be finished by 6pm in time for Introduction to Backpacking students to sign up for the first Pack Shakedown timeslots at 6pm. Don't worry, we'll all be sweaty together!!  Students and instructors for the Tacoma Introduction to Backpacking Course Pack Shakedown activity should contact the leader to be added to the roster. 

This trip is ideal for backpackers learning to carry a weighted bag for backpack trips coming up this summer.
