Evryman's Veteran Integration, Yellowstone National Park Expedition is a 6 night / 7 day adventure led by Evryman Founder and CEO Dan Doty and Director of Operations Aaron Blaine, with the support of world class adventure guides from Montana Alpine Guides. This expedition is unique because we are combining VETERANS and CIVILIANS to slow down, work together, challenge each other and see one another on a equal playing field. Aaron believes that the key to integration is to be welcomed home by the community one fought for. It's the welcome home from their heroes journey that they deserve. Part of your ticket will help sponsor a Special Forces Veteran to attend.
The expedition is also an opportunity to get viscerally connected with nature, with yourself, and with a group of guys that are committed to being the best version of themselves. You will be challenged daily to dive deeper into your emotions and develop a greater understanding of who you are, all the while immersed in one of the most wild and iconic landscapes in North America.
Upon arrival to Bozeman MT, the trip will begin with an orientation and a day of training and preparation at our training camp in Gallatin Canyon. The core of the program is a 4-day backpacking adventure in the back country of Yellowstone National Park. Hiking days will be challenging but paced for the success of all. This is true wilderness travel--we will be carrying all of our gear on our backs, cooking our own food, and we will be miles away from the road system. Our apex objective is to climb Electric Peak, the highest point in the northern Gallatin range. In addition to the expedition, we will have an opportunity to either fly-fish or river raft, and we'll take a soak in Boiling River natural hot springs. Ample time is dedicated to having fun while building lifelong friendships.
Our highly experienced guides from Montana Alpine will ensure our safety and success.
