  Well, I thought that I had shared my last Summit newsletter until afterwards!!  We are getting so close and all of the sudden, my inbox is full of neat surprises!  Clinicians are creating all kinds of neat stuff for their classes, and someone near and dear to my heart is coming!!  I thought you all might enjoy some of the neat things I am hearing about......


In her kindness, Regina Reiter is not only getting special gifts ready for her class, but also sharing a special gift with us all!
Here is what she has to say:
"I am ready for the Summit! Painting supplies for 5 Essentials for a Radiant Walk are packed in the van. We are headed to NC early to do some hiking and scouting out Sunday's hike! I'll also be sharing one of my favorite walking tips at the Summit! Regina's "Meet the Mountains Technique" for easily climbing mountains! Gift cards are ready for participants! Anyone can receive it though, whether you come to the Summit or not! Here's the link to the webpage with the video and audio. 

How prepared are you for the outdoors???  Our awesome clinician, Jody Koonce, shared this on the Trail Dames Facebook page:
"So, what do you think of the newly designed why knot demo kits? The static practice rope is attached, but waiting on the dynamic rope from Amazon. That will go on top of the kit in those holes. Can't wait to teach this course to the awesome Trail Dames!!!
1 week away! Plus each attendee will receive their own take home kit!


I learned something cool about one of our Clinicians!!!  Deane, aka Roo, who is teaching Stuff Sack Yoga and Intentional Hiking has an awesome new ebook out!!! 
You can get it for free at her website!!  Go here to not only get a copy, but to read her fantastic blog and see her beautiful watercolors! 

And, call me selfish, but this one is all about me!!! 
I am so excited that I am about to pop!!  I found out this morning that my hiking partner from my 2003 Appalachian Trail thru-hike attempt is coming!!!  Yep!!  Bumpkin will be there!! And she is bringing her book to do signings!  If you hear a ruckus when she arrives, it will be us doing the Dance of the Real Woman!!


Finally....don't forget that we are having a gear swap Friday night!!  Bring your stuff!!  :) :)
