Everyone is on their own for food and we'll all pitch in for travel expenses.
Open to men 18 and older in good physical condition. We will co-ordinate tent spots and shared gear. Don't hesitate to reach out to me if you have any questions.
Email me to reserve your spot and let me know if you have a vehicle that you would be willing to drive and if you have a tent or other group gear such as a stove and mess kit, water filter or bear canister.
