“Jeff’s guidance and coaching while preparing for this adventure set me up for success.  He gave me a detailed training plan for each week, beginning with short hikes with no pack load and progressing to multiple weekly hikes with a full pack load.  As I was acquiring gear for the trip, Jeff provided advice on what to look for and what to avoid.

We held a one-hour coaching session each month, which helped Jeff track my progress and help me prepare mentally for the challenges we could face on our trip.  We reviewed maps, pictures from previous excursions, and likely weather events so that I had a good idea of what to expect and be prepared for.

Once we got underway, all the training time and gear preparation came together.  I was physically prepared for the demands of a multi-day hike at elevations above 12,000 feet.  I had the proper gear for the weather conditions that the Rockies can throw at you in the summer months.   I also had a guide who I could count on to get me to the summit and back to the trailhead in one piece.  Jeff is also a fantastic backcountry cook…providing the good calories we needed during the day and a delicious hot meal every evening…with a nip of good Colorado whiskey for dessert!”
