Quick notes

  • June is a rainy month so participants should check the listing in the last 24 hours for updates
  • Event details may change so participants should check as soon as they get the reminder 2 days away
  • Some events are for all levels of hikers, some are best for a slower group and some are best for a stronger group, so members have to pick carefully; the worst case scenario on a longer hike is to have someone not able to keep up which makes it difficult for the whole group
  • When a leader sees this type of mismatch, he/she may intervene in the best interests and safety of the whole group
  • Mosquito season is upon us so hikers are reminded to prepare adequately

As a flatlander from Manitoba I have always been captivated by the mountains of the west. Moving to Kamloops has provided me with the perfect base camp to explore those very peaks that pulled our family west.

My typical hiking style can be summed up with “Nothing ventured, nothing gained”. Bushwhacking has become an acceptable form of travel for me as it seems that a lot of the great spots are off trail.

Hikes done by myself and Marty tend to fall into this category so don’t be surprised if this happens on a Marant hike. You can find more information at http://marantrambles.ca.

Happy Hiking!
