Hey all you "newbies" and anyone who needs a refresher. This will be a discussion and presentation on all things hiking. If you are new to hiking you'll want to attend.
We'll be discussing all sorts of hiking topics such as:
Why we Hike
Trip Ratings
Hiking books, guides and maps
Wildlife
Preparing for hiking
Hiking etiquette
Hiking Gear

and more

plus Q and A

There will be plenty of group involvement and hands on participation. It definately won't be a boring classroom type setting.

Everyone attending will recieve a DVD and hiking lists etc.

The seminar is being offered through The Slow and Steady Adventures Co. There is a $20 per person charge to help cover the cost of the room and materials plus refreshments.

    Great introduction! I really appreciated the basic equipment tips.

    A great group of new hikers that asked lots of questions. I look forward to seeing you all on the trails really soon. Just by taking the seminar you are already so far ahead of many new hikers by knowing what you need to take on a hike and what you can expect on a hike.

    Thank you Andy the presentation was great, really enjoyed it and will be using the information to go shopping for required equipment. Hope to join a hike soon, probably a good idea to break in the boots first.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
