Land managers, local guides/outfitters, and guide books, are smart places to begin planning for outdoor trips of all kinds.
We were very excited to visit Guilford, CT to meet up with one of our amazing Leave No Trace partners…FALCON GUIDES. We had a great time and were so impressed that over 40 employees from Global Pequot Press chose to spend their lunch-hour talking about Leave No Trace with us. In addition to sharing Leave No Trace information about our skills, ethics and programs, we were able to learn a lot about the book business. For example, did you know that Falcon Guides has published over 11,000 FalconGuide trails, rides, and waterways and as many as 50,000 climbing routes for all over the United States and many European countries, which makes them a great source when you are in the Plan Ahead and Prepare stage of your next adventure.
We’d like to give a big thank you to Max Phelps, Director of Sales and Marketing, for taking the time to set this up and show us around once we arrived in Guilford. We had a great time and can’t wait to see the whole Falcon Guides crew at Outdoor Retailer in a few weeks!
