Is there a long distance hike on the Appalachian Trail or the Long Trail in your future?  Do you want information on planning, physical conditioning, gear, clothing, food, and resupply? Do you know how much your pack should weigh? Is it safe to hike alone? What equipment should I bring? Should I take a snake bite kit? What about bears, vultures, and wild boar? 
The Gordon-Nash Library, 69 Main Street, New Hampton, N.H. is sponsoring a day-long workshop on long distance hiking and developing a personalized system for a long distance hike.
The workshop will cover a broad range of topics including financial and time consideration as well as all the above.
The workshop will be led by long distance hiker, Gordon DuBois who is a resident of New Hampton and has hiked extensively in the mountains of Northern New England.  He completed his AT hike in 2011 and has also hiked the Long Trail and sections of the International Appalachian Trail. 
Extensively experienced in winter mountaineering, hiking 85 on the highest 100 in New England in winter. Registration covers morning refreshments, lunch and learning materials.
