Excellent!Tanya M.

I think it was great to have a woman as one of the instructors, its a great inspiration to hear from an accomplished and confident woman.Terry C.

I really learned a lot and feel more prepared to go try this on my own. Both Andy and Lucy share the passion they have for this and that's infectious.Rick 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.

I had no backpacking experience. I knew nothing about equipment or how to prepare for backpacking. But I do now. Thank you!Deb G.

The guides were friendly and helpful. The activities were varied and interesting. The cabins were lovely.Patty H.

The trip was awesome. I honestly have nothing to say that could be improved. Great company, workshops and positive atmosphere!Paula H.

Andy was a great guide and I had a wonderful time on the trail. I learned a lot about what to do and what not to do and I wouldn't change anything about his demonstrations.Carmen P.

It was good getting new practical information on backpacking skills. I enjoyed learning how to cross streams. Thanks for your attention to all the pieces that made it a great trip!Mary Ellen B

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.

I thought the trip was very educational, especially for those really interested in learning key backpacking skills.Carol C.
