Just cant wait for a longer trip!!Darlene A.

I thoroughly enjoyed this trip! The workshops were extremely helpful when considering planning a trip on my own. I loved having only women on the trip. Nothing against men but a trip with only women has a completely different energy and it was wonderful.Terry C.

The guides are knowledgeable and their presentations were relevant to our needs as beginners. Both were positive and encouraging in their approach to us. The program exceeded my expectations!Bill K.

What I like best is learning survival skills out in the woods but also those that could be applied to every day life such as Stopa!M.W.

It was fun, exciting, challenging, informative and the guides were the best.Bettina H.

The trip was wonderful and inspiring. My favorite part was crossing the river. I can not think of any changes needed. It was also nice to meet others interested in backpacking. It was impressive how hard the guides worked to assist us setting up camp on a rainy day and then cooking so many different foods for us to try. I will book another trip!Sally D.
