I acknowledge that the above list is only a fraction of possibilities of what may occur during the trip, and that a full list would be impossible to ascertain. I have reviewed the above and considered the risks and concluded that I wish to participate in the trip. In spite of the inherent risks, I agree to be responsible for my own welfare and accept any and all risks.
