Slack packing


Slack pack. The young daughter of a dear friend is claiming her dream and currently hiking the Appalachian Trail. I’m learning a lot from reading her daily journal including what she meant by this term.

Slack packing is a team effort that allows the hiker to drop a heavy pack and hike a certain distance with only water and snacks. Another generous party then shuttles the heavy pack to a point farther down the trail for pick up.

I have never hiked the Appalachian Trail. But I now know that, many times in my life, I have benefited from slack packing.
