A life on trail without packers would be monotonous,

Packers are the lifeblood when it comes to getting us out into the Wilderness,


They bring more than just their stories, strength, time and their courageous stock, (some transporting over 100 pound loads for our bulky needs and essential trail working tools)

Without packers, our food certaintly wouldn’t be as plentiful

Our education on stock use would be absent

And our special connection among love for the outdoors and the Bob Marshall Wilderness would’ve never been shared.

Numerous relationships have been built among both Volunteer Packers and Forest Service packers,

As they will continue to build.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts, to all Packers giving their time to the BMWF
