The Team …..
The Outdoor Connections team is composed of a small group of dedicated and experience outdoor enthusiasts. We are fully insured, professional NYS licensed guides with American Red Cross certifications in CPR, First Aid, and Water Safety. We have come together from all walks of life, from assorted backgrounds and various occupations. We share a common appreciation for getting outside, for trying new things, seeing new places, and making new friends.
A Seed Is Planted …..
The genesis of Outdoor Connections began years ago. A small group of friends would go out for the day and hike, or bike, or paddle, or ski, or whatever. It typically consisted of going somewhere new and unexplored by the group. Perhaps somewhere off the beaten path. The usual requirements included a healthy physical challenge, a heap of stamina and energy, and a bit of navigational prowess. The payoff was big! We were constantly rewarded with some kind of memorable experience to take home with us at the end of the day – a fantastic view, a gnarly rock scramble to a mountain top, a picturesque lake or cove, some sweet single-track or whitewater, an old forgotten ruin miles from any road, etc. As we retold our tales over happy hour drinks or Sunday football games, the word began to spread and more friends seemed interested in joining us. It became routine to have a dozen or more gear-up for some of our later excursions…. and so began the idea that if more people knew what we did every weekend, the more that would want to come along. In 2009, we created our current website and began offering a list of scheduled trips open to the general public, so now everyone and anyone can get to experience these uniquely special and memorable places.
