A Winning Approach
I am excited about hiking in nature, exploring new areas and teaching traditional outdoor skills. My business model is to be a small family owned nature education and guide service. As such, I focus on the quality of an experience rather than the quantity of people I guide.
Staying outdoors, staying small and keeping it simple;
it works for me and it works for you.
An Ounce of Prevention is
Worth a Pound of Cure!
This one simple phrase is the foundation of my operation. It is far easier to prevent an emergency than to clean up the devastation created by one. I apply this concept in the field and I also use this at home, especially in the days of the coronavirus pandemic.
Hiking safety is critical anywhere, and in the desert, hiking safety has its own challenges. I have put together some information on Desert Hiking Safety for anyone that hikes in the desert, whether you hike with me or self-guide your adventure.
