The guide's depth and breadth of knowledge of backpacking and the outdoors was amazing!Connie M.

I loved meeting new friends and comparing equipment. I don't think I would change a thing. I liked the fact that every time we talked about things like water filtering or camp stoves, someone there had used something different and we got to see how they worked. Visual experience is always the best.Sara D.
