ALDHA West Cascade Winter Ruck

ALDHA West Cascade Winter Ruck

This past Saturday, CleverHiker was thrilled to attend the first ever ALDHA West Cascade Winter Ruck in Cascade Locks, Oregon. The purpose of the event was to bring together a mix of veteran thru-hikers and aspiring long distance backpackers to swap stories and build community. It was a learning and networking opportunity for backpackers of all levels and CleverHiker was on hand to soak up the weekend’s events and share some tips and techniques. The program included a variety of long-distance backpacking presentationsequipment evaluations, a gear raffle of UL goodies, great food, and cheap handcrafted beers.
