What's Your Plan?

Seattle,WA:  For some it's stressful. For others, it's their favorite part of the trip. For everyone, planning is the essential way to have the most fun and lowest impact adventure possible.

Every great trip begins with some kind of check in.  Where are we going? Fresh batteries in the beacon? Got a throw bag? How about a med kit?  Know how to use it? Asking a few crucial questions like these before you leave is necessary to ensuring that you and your group minimize your impact while out adventuring.

That's why we created this easy to use Leave No Trace Plan template.  Fill this out before leaving home to make sure you have all the necessary gear and info.  Share this with the group too so that everyone is on the same page. This will help your whole crew minimize their impact, and alleviate potential conflicts later on.  

With a little "Planning Ahead and Preparing," you can make your next adventure epic, instead of becoming "an epic."  

Have Fun.  Be Safe.  Leave No Trace.
