California San Diego - Boucher Trail

This series led by GWH Ambassador Amanda Cash!

I hope to maintain a hiking pace of at least 2 mph (30 min/mi). As the temperature, mileage, elevations and altitudes increase on each hike, 2 mph will become harder to maintain, and this is where the additional cardio training will come in handy.

--------------------------

FREQUENT QUESTIONS: 
- No Dogs/Adventure Animals
- No Persons Under 18
- No Males, this is NOT a co-ed trip. 
- Food, or money for food is your responsibility. 
- If you are carpooling with a volunteer driver, it is not required, but be kind and offer something towards gas money. 

--------------------------
DRIVERS: 
There is no cap on how many drivers we can have go this trip, however here are some things to consider and our driver guidelines. 

Gas & any Park entrance costs are drivers responsibility, but we do encourage those who carpool in your car to pitch in for gas. If you have a set amount your hoping to receive from each girl please let them know before they confirm to ride in your car. Driver assumes all responsibility for any tickets, car damage, etc. 

I highly encourage drivers to have a co-pilot in their car who can take over when the driver gets tired, this is 10 hours of driving in one day, plus hiking, driving will be draining. 

With all that said, IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE A DRIVER PLEASE DO THE FOLLOWING: Post a comment below with
