“Came home last night full of wonderful stories about our amazing weekend and lit your soap-scented candle for everyone to enjoy. Oh what a feeling of joy came over me!

Just wanted to say THANK YOU one more hundredth time for all your TLC, expertise and enthusiasm you put into making this past weekend soooooo extra special for me. I now appreciate just how much work, thought, planning and energy went into it on our behalf.

I truly don’t remember the last time I laughed so much. Whether it was over you boogie-ing-down ’n singing soooo happily to your Mardi-Gras music, having quincy-building snow fights or sled races…. The weekend not only rejuvenated the kid-like me but lifted my spirits 120%.

You are truly gifted with a passion for camping. Thanks for sharing a great thing CP! I know you will be a huge success with your Wilderness Wanderings business, after having sampled it this past weekend.

Wishing you ALL the well deserved success in your new busines adventure!!!” Cheers.”

That is amazing!! I shared my experience with my program today and everyone was very intrigued. I told them that it helped me feel like I can survive in the cold winter and sleep outside, then I can survive my depression as well. It also gave me a new sense of energy and strength. I was struggling a little but that weekend helped me get out of a rut and was such a drastic change and so much fun it turned me around. I definitely like the winter now that you have given it a purpose to me. I see the snow differently now. I would love to incorporate my passion for dog sledding with winter camping some day!!”

Love your Qunzie-Mate”

“Thanks so much CP, for giving me this opportunity… to enjoy nature, spend time with others and boost my seritonin levels! A natural ‘anti-depressant”

Feedback from preparing group and leaders for adventure outdoor activities

“You got me doing things that I have never done before. It was stressful for me at the time, because I did not have the skills, experience or confidence. You opened my eyes. I am a different person because of you. I take more risks, test myself more, and am more open to trying new things.
Thank you!”
