“Will you be the one?”

Will you…

  • plan for your long weekend adventure?
  • prepare effectively for the weather conditions?
  • follow our 3 Ts; trip plan, train and take essentials?
  • ensure your friends/family are capable of the journey?
  • be confident in your skills and abilities to ‘spend the night’ if necessary?
  • complete a trip plan and leave it with friends/family? (our App works great for that!)
  • have proper gear and safety essentials to safely reach your destination? (destination is home!)

Will you be the one?

BE the one, BE AdventureSmart!
