Just wanted to let you know what a spectacular weekend we had. I could not have been happier signing up for this trip. For a while, I've been wanting to do more backpacking, but just now brave enough or confident enough to venture out on my own. Nancy B.

Amazing program, amazing experience! I will definitely backpack with OAC againEllen S.

I loved that it was all planned for me and I could relax and enjoy it. The trail and views were awesome. The workshops were very informative. Andy made me feel safe and have fun. One of my best vacations ever! I cannot wait to get back out on the trail!! Thanks so much!Teri H.

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.

I really liked the planning that was evident on this trip. No one can predict the weather - and we certainly experienced 3 of the 4 seasons - but there were plans in place to deal with whatever mother nature threw at us.Linda M.

The program covers the ethics behind Leave No Trace principles and why we all should try our best to be good stewards of our environment. Captain Blue's leadership and interpersonal skills were second to none. He is the consummate professional but keeps the atmosphere relaxed, fun and flexible. Thank you for exceeding my expectations.Dirk W.

I can't think of anything to change or do better. The park, facilities, trails and amenities were absolutely wonderful and beautiful. Very happy! The guides were great! They were interesting, provided a personal experience and were so very knowledgeable. So enthusiastic!Debbie D.

The whole experience was great: very friendly and knowledgeable leaders, great group of women, and wonderful views!Robin T.

The guides are knowledgable 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.

Every excursion was well planned and detailed. I enjoy being pampered as well as being fit.Jennifer L.

Loved the presentations, the humor, the information. Andy is a natural teacher, you made the Leave No Trace fun even for adults, and through the chuckles, made it thought provoking too.Glen B.

The challenge of the weather made the trip better. Being harder built my confidence. Andy and Lucy are AWESOME guides.Mike L.

I haven't enjoyed myself like that in a long time. Two beautiful campsites, totally different from one another; a very pleasant hiking pace.Glenn R.

Don't change a thing Andy! I had a fantastic time. Chris C.

Still trying to absorb the absolutely wonderful experiences I had this past weekend. I highly recommend Outdoor Adventure Connection if you want to learn more about all things hiking. This is my second trip with them, and it was even more awesome than the first one.Shelly M.

I liked Andy's leadership style: allowing flow to the work ; encouragement; teaching; sense of humor, appreciation and respect for each person.Karen K.
