Conquer the wild!

Join us at our Richmond/Carytown location for a girl's night focused on all things hiking!

Two of our experienced gals will be sharing their outdoor knowledge with women who want to learn more and get out there more!

The focus will be on day hiking: What to bring, where to go and how to prepare.

It'll also be a great way to meet other girls to hike with!

Meet the Author

Why would anyone in their right mind choose to walk 500 miles across a far-away country over mountain ranges, dark forests, and barren lands, through rains, searing sun, and a white-out blizzard with nothing but hemorrhaging tendons, severe blisters, and daily aches and pains to show for it? As Steve Watkins considered the question for himself and posed it to a fellow pilgrim on the trail one day, his companion's response was right on. 

"Well, it seemed like a good idea at the time."

Truth is we are wired for long walks and thinking time. Restless souls across the religious spectrum and dating back 2000 years before Christ have practiced pilgrimage in search of a greater understanding about themselves, and life. But for some unknown reason, pilgrimage is largely foreign to us today.

Henry David Thoreau believed walking constituted a sovereign remedy for most of life's problems. Solvitur ambulando ... it is solved by walking.

Join journalist and storyteller Steve Watkins as he shares in refreshingly insightful and transparent voice his forty-day account and the life lessons learned while walking a million and a half steps on one of the world's most ancient Christian pilgrimages - the Camino de Santiago.
