This group is for anyone interested in backpacking, camping, hiking, and wilderness adventures.  All skill levels are welcome, from the true day-hiker beginner ready to make the leap into backpacking, to the seasoned and traveled backpacker. In this group, we will definitely be seeking out the roads less traveled!  So do not be intimidated if you have little to no backpacking experience, I love introducing people to question is dumb, and there is plenty of experience to share.

This group is intended to be a free-formed, user-driven, laid-back backpacking group.  While we will be focusing on backpacking events, we will also have car-camping events and possible intermittent 'other activities' (local get-togethers, music venues, etc.) along the way...suggestions are always welcome.

REMEMBER that this is your group and without your support, we aren't really a group.  That said, we have a truly voluntary donation option! It is not required that you donate in order to participate in this group or attend our meetups (aside from any event-specific costs). Please do not feel obligated to donate…but at the same time, please consider donating to the group. ANY amount, at any time, is GREATLY appreciated! With your help we’ll keep on planning more and more epic adventures for everyone!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
