"I would like to thank Allie for the amazing and informative day I spent with her navigation training. As a trail runner, hiker and mum of 4 who likes to keep her kids wild by taking them into the bush on hikes. I found the day spent with Allie learning Navigation Skills, how to read topographical maps, pacing, GPS use and basic understanding of the terrain and how it appears on a map invaluable. It gave me the confidence to venture further and enjoy more of our great outdoors. Her straight forward approach easy manner and methodical instruction made for a fun and informative day in the beautiful Blue Mountains. I absolutely recommend it to all who want to spend time in our great outdoors as a matter of safety and common sense."- Melissa Nakhle
