Great. And you are very patient with the slower hikers

“ We had over 40 hikers. When you get that many, and that varied hiking levels in can be like herding cats, but somehow Dean managed to keep everyone together. Good workout, fun people and knowledgeable, capable leader. ”

“ Perfect. He goes at a reasonable pace and was very careful to keep track of the entire group. ”

“Dean is a wonderful leader. He really paid attention to the needs of the group. He facilitated the group, but didn’t control the group. I will attend again.”

“If Dean [one of the original SoCal Meetup-ers mind you] would ever write a book on hiking SoCal [as he rightfully should] it would be a must-buy. Dean is both knowledgeable and adventurous. Conscientious and kind. I would have no problem hiking with Dean anywhere.”

“The group leader Dean is very conscious of all of us hikers as a group. We all get to trek at our own pace comfortably and still stay together. He’s got an agenda planned with an extra twist on where we are going to hike.”
