This trip was a wonderful experience. It was FUN, and the workshops were so informative. I feel the confidence to repeat this adventure on my own. The section of the AT is simply spectacular! This adventure is so inspiring! I will definitely do this trip again and hope some of my friends will too.Edda K.

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.

Amy and Yvonne are excellent leaders and work well together. Very professional and well educated. They made the experience enjoyable and backpacking seem very manageable and meaningful.Lori D.

The guide was great! She was so patient and caring. I believe she went above and beyond. Carrie N.

Very well organized! I liked how the team worked together to share their knowledge and experience with all of us. I liked how the guides were patient when we asked questions and the overall wonderful comaraderie of the group and relaxed atmosphere throughout the weeekend. Overall experience was great!Helen M.

I especially enjoyed the creek crossing! I was also very glad to learn about additional techniques for hanging bear bags and all sorts of general safety tips. I can't think of anything I would change - even glad I now know how to handle backpacking in the rain.Jessica C.

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

I was glad to finally see how much a 23 lb pack feels when hiking. It wasn't bad at all. The guides are very knowledgeable and enjoy sharing their experiences with others. Their personal touch with everything from breakfast to best practices was awesome!Jill B.

There is not ONE THING I WOULD CHANGE!!!!! The entire trip exceeded every expectation I had. And Andy, you could not have been a more wonderful, helpful, and genuinely kind person!!!!
