I will take your family (12 or order), and friends on this awesome Adventure!!!
The only thing I ask is you are a people-person. Remember you are around a group. Bad Attitudes, or people who can't control their behavior are not welcome. I do step up and go toe to toe with anyone who consciously or non- consciously brings down the atmosphere of happiness and fun adventures within our group. I ask each person who attends to recognize that I am the group leader and my interest is to promote a great and fun group event.
