Outerthere is an outdoor adventure community and media company. The community, including this website and social media sites, is owned and operated by Salesnique, Inc. Salesnique, Inc. is wholly owned by, Al Berrios.
Outerthere hosts outdoor adventure trips and travel, inviting the public to come along, for the purposes of content production. Just about any outdoor activity that Outerthere hosts, is inherently dangerous. Without getting into too much legalese, please understand that risk of discomfort, injuries, exposure to allergens, mutilations, death, and a whole bunch of other risks I won't even name here, is high. If you do acknowledge these risks, because chances are, you've been outside before, that means that you, your family, your heirs, executors, and administrators also acknowledge these risks and assume them entirely. And that means that you agree to indemnify and release Outerthere (including "Outerthere family", "Outerthere fam", Salesnique, Inc, and Al Berrios) from any legal liabilities associated with these risks. Which hopefully also means you won't sue if the proverbial hits the fan. Be aware that whatever activity we do through a professional outfitter or other guiding service will also ask you to sign documents with similar language to protect themselves as well.
That said, safety first! Outerthere takes preemptive and proactive safety measures to keep anyone who comes out with us safe. Prior to any trip, you may receive fitness, nutrition, weather, and gear recommendations along with difficulty ratings so you can decide if a trip is right for you and are properly prepared. At the start of any trip, your Outerthere host may also go through a safety briefing, which includes review of maps, trails, appropriate use of gear and equipment, and what to do in case of emergencies. But if anything should go wrong, unless you say otherwise, you also authorize Outerthere (and any of its assignees) to help you, primarily by getting you medical assistance. That doesn't mean that you will be left in pain until professional help arrives; with your permission, your host can provide minimal, basic first aid if you're no where near a hospital. (You'd also be glad to know that there's always other Outerthere fam who come on trips with medical training, how good mobile phone reception is at the destinations we go to, and how close we actually are to hospitals where you'd receive care within an hour or two of an emergency happening). Although these aren't reasons to treat your safety casually, they provide additional safety nets in case of emergencies.
Most Outerthere trips are attended by people who are familiar with our procedures, activities, and the risks, and trust that risks will be managed and the right safety decisions will be made on every trip. That said, Outerthere is not covered by insurance. Outerthere takes proactive measures to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable trip, but if your condition is assessed inaccurately, and you end up finding fault with our procedures or our handling of them, and decide you want to sue, please remember, we're also broke.
