South Dakota Mandatory packing list; Hike Monday night; Bring in Tents, Loan Packs, Loan Boots

Good afternoon!

It's the last weekend before camp and therefore a GREAT time to check you have all the REQUIRED gear. Please take the time to CHECK and CONFIRM you have it all. Today would be a great time to pick up any last minute items.

We're having our fun DQ Ice Cream Practice Hike tomorrow from 6:30 - 8:30 so pack your bag today ;-)

This will be a medium adventure trip into the back country for distributed camping. We will NOT be able to just run to the trailer and grab something as it will be miles avway the other side of a mountain (literally). Coming PREPARED will keep everyone safe. We will be doing a MANDATORY pack check the morning we start the hike and those missing items we cannot easily replace will be staying in base camp and miss the hike. BE PREPARED and enjoy the adventure!

A good hiking backpack.
