Participant Expectations:

  • All to stick together as a group for our journey to the destination.
  • Pacing will be adjusted to accommodate one having a bad day, but everyone is welcome to self-evaluate if they are fit to join and if you do not know, please reach out to me and we can discuss it further.
  • All decisions shall be made and discussed with a full group.
  • Speaking up in the outdoors is difficult and I understand that, but I hope to be a friend and that you feel open to chatting or speaking up more. I certainly encourage that.
  • I also encourage all of my participants to have their thinking hats on and be equal participants. 
  • Trips tend to get canceled if self-care is not possible
  • Pacing on my trips is to be, near and if possible, in our aerobic zones. Good training and conditioning will allow such to live this expectation on the trip and still have time to attain the summit if weather permits.
