  • Wear sturdy shoes, and long pants; bring plenty of water, and a lunch if you plan to stay all day
  • Please let us know you're coming beforehand, and wait for confirmation prior to traveling to a crew trip, so that we can notify you of any last minute changes

  • Be advised: crew trips can be strenuous, and fun: be prepared to exercise your body and mind!
