Lightweight Tripping Seminar Summary

On Wednesday February 24, 2021 Nigel Ward gave a very informative seminar on Zoom dealing with lightweight packing.

This was a virtual version of the in-person session he gave last year.

He provided an insight into why canoeists tend to over-pack, and many guidelines and suggestions on how to avoid over-packing. Following these guidelines makes it possible take some of the burden out of portaging, and to facilitate single-pass portaging, something that is essential when going on trips with multiple long-distance portages.
