Since Take It Outdoors Adventures (TIOA) started in 2012 our community of adventurers has grown significantly. Every year our community has doubled and we are working with more and more organizations such as the Schuylkill River Heritage Area, Fairmount Water Works, Schuylkill Canal Association, Schuylkill Headwaters Association, local businesses, etc. With all of the growth TIOA has experienced it is becoming difficult to manage by myself (and I have not done it by myself). Also, due to personal changes I will be splitting time between Switzerland and the United States. As a result I am exploring partnership options that will help take TIOA to the next level. By partnering up with the right person I will have the ability to travel back and forth a few times a year and be a part of the bigger trips (Schuylkill Sojourn, Picture Rocks MI, Acts & Impacts, etc.), run some of the local day trips, and run logistics, while someone will be here to manage day to day operations.
I am talking with people, and always looking for qualified people, who may be interested in running trips (kayaking, backpacking, camping, biking, climbing etc.) on a trip by trip basis. All of our trips, regardless of who is leading them, will be run with the same quality, friendliness, openness and sense of adventure that you have come to expect. We will keep our little community going & growing…and we will start running international trips. The Alps are chock-full of backpacking, biking, skiing, sight-seeing & touristic opportunities.
TIOA has a great foundation of adventurers, organizations and guides and we will use this momentum to take TIOA to the next level. New and exciting trips are already being planned for 2016.
From the bottom of my heart I thank all of you who support, and are a part of, the TIOA community!! You have made a dream become a reality.
Here is to new & bigger adventures together!!! ...
