PHYSICAL DEMANDS/REQUIREMENTS:Days have the potential to be long when conditions are at their prime, although we'll always consider appropriate breaks for hydration and food. We've planned to keep a balanced pace, but if we're feeling it, we'll stay out. There will be light walking, you should be comfortable walk at least 1-2 miles with little to no elevation gain. Water, snacks and food in the field are your responsibility.
