We are a group that enjoys the outdoors and all it has to offer. Our hikes will range from moderate to challenging and are NOT for the novice hiker. We enjoy being out all year!
We mostly hike in Western CT, but we also schedule hikes in New York, Mass, and New Hampshire.
Members are responsible for:
* their own well being
* wearing and having the appropriate hiking gear
* everyone should have their own first aid kit and any medications that they might need
* having an "incase of emergency sheet" in their back pack.. It should have your name, address, any medications, medical conditions and allergies that you might have, and at least 2 emergency contacts on it. I recommend putting it in a clear pastic bag and storing it in a front compartment in your backpack.
* knowing their own capabilities....
