Previous Guided Wilderness Trips & Red Cross Instruction Testimonials

"We just got back from a 5 day camping/canoeing trip with Tim. We had a wonderful time and enjoyed ourselves immensely. It was our first trip to the Adirondacks and Tim put together an itinerary that gave us a great experience of the area. We paddled and camped our way from Upper Saranac Lake, through Middle Saranac and into Lower Saranac. Along the way we stayed in beautiful campsites, and one or two nights we had our own private island! We were able to totally relax and also spent some great time fishing. Tim took care of everything - from food and menus to booking the campsites. Along the way we spent some time improving our canoeing skills with guidance from Tim and we picked his brain and also learned some wilderness survival skills. S'mores and wine around the campfire were the cherry on top. We would highly recommend the experience to everyone!"

"Over the last seven years, I have had the pleasure of working with Tim. He has been at all times my coach, mentor and advisor on exercise, diet and nutrition. He is very knowledgeable and always willing to help. I highly recommend Tim as a person with many talents and character."

"Tim has served as my personal trainer for one-and-one-half years. During that time, I was able, through a combination of aerobic exercise, weightlifting and healthy eating, to lose approximately 15 pounds. Tim has also helped motivate me sufficiently to maintain that fitness level on my own."
- I. Ligouri

"Tim assisted me in developing my own exercise program. Under Tim's guidance, I have continued regular exercise since that time and have won several prizes in my age group for 5K runs."

"For the past 3 years, Tim has led 20-25 high school students from West Seneca West on a kayaking/canoeing trip, experiencing Tonawanda Creek and the Buffalo River. Each year, the students have a terrific experience while learning some of the history of Buffalo’s landmarks (grain elevators and canal locks). It has grown in popularity and students often beg to be a part of the field trip. Tim’s rapport with the students is positive. They respond with respect and acknowledge his vast experience and skills in the outdoor education setting. Any physical education program would benefit from adding this excursion as a culminating activity for a kayaking/canoeing unit. Thanks again Tim!"
