Upcoming Events: Winter 2015

upcoming talksThis winter I will be giving talks throughout New England. Topics include Peak Bagging the New England 67, Hiking the John Muir Trail, and Ultralight Hiking and Backpacking.
The first two will include photos of my hikes as well as information to help with planning your own adventures. The ultralight talk will include many UL products example such as packs, shelters, sleep sleeping bags/quilts, and smaller objects such as ditty bags and first aid kits. I will also have UL Gossamer Gear packs to try on as well. I have a talk on how to begin to lighten your pack and tips for all levels. The night ends with a Q&A session.

She is an experienced trail maintainer, speaker, and passionate member of the outdoor community. In New England, Allison enjoys trekking along the highest peaks, bushwhacking to less traveled areas, and has a fondness for sunrise and sunset trips. Outside of New England Allison has also thru hiked the John Muir Trail and explored mountains in the German and Austrian Alps, Israel, and the Azores. Her goal is to share her passion for hiking and backpacking with others, especially with women, to inspire them to experience the freedom of the trail!
