I've loved the positive energy of the group, highly motivated by the guides. Andy, you've done a fantastic job at making us believe we walked around the world :-). This shows how well organized and planned everything was.Marta A.

I can't pick any one thing I liked "best". I thought the whole trip was great. You have done an outstanding job on the other trips I've been on with you and you did so again on this one. First rate all the way.Jack L.

I absolutely enjoyed the trip and the workshops. I'm hooked and wanting to learn more about back country backpacking and go on more trips.Paula H.

The trip was a wonderful experience and one I never thought I would get to have.Cara S.

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.

Guides were great. Perfect team that complemented each other perfectly. Very patient and addressed everyone's unique needs.Toni M.

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

Thank you Again Andy for a Wonderful Weekend. Beautiful Scenery, Perfect Weather and a GREAT group of Hiking Friends. These trips definitely allow me to go to places I would NEVER venture out on my own.Kimberly S.

I loved the instruction and how well this was done!Jerry S.

The entire trip from start to finish exceeded my expectations. Even though we had rain during portions of the adventure, that didn't change a thing! May even made the trip a bit more challenging. Do not change a thing, all breakout sessions were great.Doug L.
