Our Buddies in Group One

Our brains are like sponges and we’re never done learning. —BC

The group out there that many of you have heard about — the one called Hiking Buddies — started a thing. Inspired by tragedy, they decided to affect a change — or at least try to. The first order of business: Well, our Buddies don’t solo and the aforementioned tragedy involved a person hiking on their own. So, in a way, this is one form of disaster mitigation in of itself. Next, our Buddies, wanted to be pro-education — informed people are less likely to run into problems. A recent fundraiser tackled this matter by generating enough money to buy some class time — and more. Our role here at Redline Guiding was/is to teach and since we are also pro-education, we decided to cut our fees in half. This, we felt, was our heartfelt contribution to a worthy cause (and the work goes on).

Our first group, working on their three-season Redline Guiding/Hiking Buddies certifications was for 17-25 year olds and was free of charge for them. The instruction over a two day period consisted of a partial Hiking Intro, Camp Craft, and River Skills course on day one, and a complete one-day Wilderness Navigation course on day two. Day one was co-led by Redline Guides Pat Ferland and Arlette Laan. On day two, Mike Cherim took on a co-lead, also with Arlette. Both days, despite rain on each, was a success.

Here are a few photos from this past weekend. Most were taken by Arlette.

To our instructors and students, well done! Thank you for taking the time to become better, safer hikers!
