What an absolutely wonderful weekend this was! It was refreshing, challenging, relaxing, fun, therapeutic, inspiring, energizing, esteem building, educational and informative. The weekend was filled with new and unique experiences for me - caving, yoga, yoga in a cave, gourmet dining. Loved all of the caves we were able to see on the hikes and also the ones we were able to explore. I didn't realize how fun it would be to get up close and personal with a cave by crawling in the dirt on hands and knees. Sign me up for the next retreat!Karen P.

I liked the variety of activities that were offered. The guides were very energetic and informative about the activities. I really enjoyed the Kristy's program on stress management at the beginning of the retreat.Heather P.

It was an excellent trip all the way around. It gave me a lot of opportunity to get close to the nature and refresh myself.Ivin J.

I thought that this workshop was a good test of the equipment my wife and I are planning to take next month when we begin section hiking on the AT. I particularly liked the helpful tips I received from both guides.Randall B.

I loved the 'can do' attitude, no matter the experience level of the client. They gave me a lot of confidence that no matter your experience level or physical fitness level, this can be done.Traci B.

I enjoyed hearing from the guides about their experiences on the trails. Great group of people. Sharon H.

Given the challenging weather conditions, the trip was a fabulous success. I participated with a friend to encourage her to learn more about backpacking and build some confidence.Lana P.

What a fabulous adventure! Where to start? This section of the Roan Highlands is magical in its beauty. The flowers, the trees, the boulders, the steep climbs, the grassy balds, set against the backdrop of mountainous ridge after ridge were breath taking.Karen P.

I have more knowledge and a greater appreciation for taking care of our wild places.Naomi J.

From Leave No Trace, to the simplicity of food choices, to starting a fire, I was amazed by all of the little tricks.Rachel M.

Had a great time! Guides were very knowledgeable and I loved how they shared their personal experiences and answered all questions thoughtfully and honestly. I will definitely take an advanced workshop.Mike K.

I was inspired by the stories from each guide and I no longer feel like I missed my chance because I didn't do this when is was "young".Naomi J.

Change nothing! It was perfect! :-)Lisa S.

This trip was quite a triumph for me personally. The scenery was amazing. The culture of the AT is something I love and am fascinated by. But people are what make our lives the most meaningful. I could not imagine sharing the experience with 6 finer people on earth.Chris C.
