Around 1980 a beautiful woman named Carol Sibley shared her love of adventure, fitness and the wilderness with some friends, and together they built a hiking style adapted to the strengths of women. This Blog outlines the details of that hiking style and, hopefully, will encourage many other women to venture out into the wilderness in her memory.
Carol dared to dream, looked for and accepted challenges, and lived her dreams with a determination and drive that broadened not only her own horizons but also those of us with whom she shared her journey. Her strength, charisma and personal drive, even through her final fight with terminal cancer, was an inspiration to all who knew and loved her. As we celebrate 26 years of hiking together, the women of FLAB continue to thank you, Carol.
The FLAB Mission Statement:
Our mission is to help ourselves and one another grow
emotionally, physically and socially
through the challenges of the wilderness,
while respecting each other's individuality.
