We ask that you wear close-toed shoes (hiking boots or sturdy sneakers). For your safety, no sandals or flip flops will be permitted. Wear comfortable clothing appropriate for the season. On rainy or windy days, bring a light jacket or wind-breaker. For colder days, long pants, wool socks, and fleece are good items to bring. In late fall and early spring months, it is better to come with too many articles of clothing than to come without enough.
We run our trips rain or shine, so plan accordingly. Some things to consider bringing are: a hat or balaclava, wool or Polypropylene long underwear top and bottom, insulated ski jacket or layers of fleece with a weatherproof shell, thin glove liners, and wool socks. Shelter building involves gathering brush, so gloves are recommended. Fire involves smoke, and you will smell like a campfire after this course.
