Planning Curriculum Each trip is planned and customized for each specific party. Planning may involve phone calls and video chats to ensure the group is prepared for the outing. We will talk gear lists, meal recipes, travel details, and any other questions that pop up along the way. Travel If you are flying to the trip location, you will probably need to arrive the day before your trip starts. Depending on the distance to the airport and the flight schedules, you may be able to fly out late on the final day. If you are local, try to be within a few hours of the trailhead so that you don't have a horribly early wake-up time on the morning of Day 1. Training Based on the information in your application, the trip that was designed should be within your physical abilities. Remember, hiking is still exercise, and your experience will be much more enjoyable if you improve or maintain your fitness. Check out our training blog to see what you can be doing before your trip.
