Hi, I am flying in with a friend from Denver July 19, 2015. Just wondering who else I might see in Group Area B waiting for the van that day.
Nancy McKinley Jun 17, 2015 at 01:46 AM

A friend and I should get there about 1:30--have to fly Phx/Dallas/Calgary as they took nonstop flight off!
Helena Goldstein Jun 17, 2015 at 10:26 AM

Luckily we can fly direct from Denver. We (2 women) are due in closer to 2 PM. Look forward to meeting you there!

Thanks very much, Max. This is quite helpful. For those planning one of these trips this summer, I just learned the packing list includes a sternum strap, that is, for our day pack.

My name is Max Shilleto and I am the Logistics Administrator for Company of Adventurers (the company that is guiding this trip). I am writing to address the questions regarding hiking poles.
If you have a set of hiking poles which you like and will fit in your luggage, you are welcome to bring them. However, if you don't have hiking poles we will gladly provide them to you as we have more than enough to go around.

We look forward to meeting you all in the coming months.

Thanks so much. It would be a huge help to be able to use yours as mine will not fit in carry on luggage and I have gotten very used to using them. Thank you.

I am also interested in whether we can borrow or rent hiking poles. I have a very tight air connection and would prefer to just bring carry on luggage. I asked the airlines and they won't allow them as carry on--dangerous weapons!
Nancy Serna May 23, 2015 at 11:15 AM

Yes they have poles to lend you. I recommend the use of poles.
Nancy McKinley May 23, 2015 at 06:02 PM

Thanks so very much!! I use them all the time--trip is short so I can do carry on and save on baggage fees!

Pam Palasz May 04, 2015 at 11:01 PM

On other hiking trips, we've brought our own poles if we wanted them.

Ann Russell Apr 05, 2015 at 05:59 PM

Will hiking poles be provided or shall we bring our own?
Janet Zinn Apr 27, 2015 at 07:07 AM

Good question. I hope someone in the know weighs in. I'm not use to them, but will learn how if they help me stay upright and they're not too cumbersome.
Nancy Serna May 07, 2015 at 12:33 PM

I recommend the use of poles. Some hiking "stairs" can be challenging.

Anyone going on the August 10-16 trip? 2 couples flying from Chicago on the 9th. Hope to see comments from those going in June and July. Thanks
Nancy Serna Jun 29, 2014 at 04:00 PM

Arriving from SFO august 9th, staying one night at the Bow Valley Inn Calgary, will meet the shuttle at the airport on August 10th.

Robert Grimes Jun 24, 2014 at 09:25 AM

has anyone gotten any feedback/ack from the company that is actually doing the trip on the food/pickup form? I sent via email 2 times and have had no reply. I would like to get an emergency number for pickup in case there is some problem finding the pickup people.
Marilyn Garcia Jun 24, 2014 at 10:31 PM

I was wondering the same thing. I sent the form via email 2 weeks ago and asked for confirmation, but I have not received a reply.
Robert Grimes Jun 26, 2014 at 09:50 AM

I faxed the company a note asking to reply. I got a reply almost immediately to an email I sent about a month ago with all the info and an appology.
Robert Grimes Jun 26, 2014 at 09:51 AM

BTW: the fax number was at the bottom of the transportation/meal form. It is a company in Canda, not RoadsScholar
