Hiking Tips From Annette

Looking to go to a state or national park but not sure you’re in good enough shape?

It doesn’t matter if you’re “not in shape.” Everyone has to start somewhere. What is important is that you start small. Of course, consult with your doctor. Once cleared, start by taking a walk around the block and slowly increase distance.  Before you know it you’ll feel confident that you can enjoy an entire day at the park.

Besides Outdoor exercise even for 5 minutes increases your self-esteem. It’s more important to show regularly for a shorter amount of time than less frequently for longer.

Be safe. In addition to checking with your doctor, make sure the physical environment is safe. Check for traffic and outdoor weather conditions.

Carefully assess your outdoor space to find a setting that is safe and meets your exercise needs. Depending on the conditions, wear sunscreen, a hat, warm clothes, or protective rain gear.

Always bring water! In the summertime, be aware of symptoms of heatstroke. Any outdoor walk can turn scary if you get dehyrdated

Transformational Treks with LuAnn
I love Minnesota! One of my passions is to bring women on an outdoor Transformational Trek to the Boundary Waters.
I am passionate about nature because I am in awe of truly how little we know about all the ecosystems that surround us.
I believe that being in nature brings me closer to God, source, universe, whatever language you want to use.
I love to challenge myself to survive with minimal luxury and know just how simply we could live, and be happy in our environment.

Travel Tips from Sandy

Where ever you decide to travel this summer it’s vital that you check the health and safety guidelines of the area you’ll be visiting.  Your safety is a priority so know before you go!

If you are traveling understand that things may take longer than you expect. Whether you’re waiting in a car line to enter a national park or to get your permits.  Be patient.

Once you decide where you want to go you need to consider your mode of transportation.  Have you ever experienced teh US by train travel?  There are a number of options for safe travel by rail.

RV rentals and camping trips with families are on the rise this summer.  Some sites are open immediately while some have limited space.  Call ahead.

Additional thoughts about accommodations.  For those of you who enjoy the VIP treatment of all-inclusive resorts, there are plenty of smaller social distancing options available.
