I'm now an experienced backpacker thanks to Outdoor Adventure Connection. Their workshops, presentations, backpack trips, and hikes have turned an interest in the outdoors into a passion. Andy is a natural at educating and promoting. He knows how to teach; he knows how to encourage; he knows when to challenge; he has a knack for connecting with people. He's creative, energetic, and a master at organization. – Karen C.
