Aside from spending all that time in the beautiful outdoors, I liked the workshops the best. Tama and Andy flawlessly conveyed years' worth of backpacking/camping knowledge to us in an understandable and entertaining way.Lucy W.

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

I liked that everyone was encouraged to do/try each activity but that no one was made to feel badly if they did not want to do something. It seems that everyone accomplished what they hoped and that people overcame their fears, too!Amanda L.

It was a great trip! Our section of trail in the Roan highlands provided great diversity and a nice sample of what life is like on the Appalachian trail.Charley S.

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

I thought the hike and workshop were excellent. I think even experienced backpackers can benefit from this workshop.Ned P.

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 camaraderie of the group and relaxed atmosphere throughout the weekend. Overall experience was great!Helen M.

Andy was a fantastic guide! He was able to provide and support with a nice gradual release. His workshops were informative and gave us valuable details about backpacking on the AT.Heather G.

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.
