I would love to attend a workshop like this to gain more information on backpacking but unfortunately you are too far away. I am located in Missouri. Do you know of other similar workshops scheduled in other locations or is there a way you can live stream or webcast your workshop?

Hi Sally. Unfortunately I will be unable to Live Stream the program do to the location. But I will say Virginia is lovely in the early spring, and the workshop's location near Shenandoah National Park, historical areas near Charlottesville (like the home of Thomas Jefferson), etc. affords some great vacation time. :)
