Our trip to Salt Lake City started early on morning of the 8th with the team piling into the van and settling in for the long drive to Boise, Idaho.

Ben's Story

- By: Benjamin Osorio

Over the past few months, I have been working hard to make enough money to afford the Callahan Valley Training Centre. I have been working for my stepfather, Steve, who is developing a subdivision close to my home. The labour has included odd jobs such as felling and chopping trees, clearing and chipping brush, and various carpentry projects. The work, while enjoyable, has been physically taxing and should prepare me well for the training to come in BC.
