This group is dedicated to bringing back local road trips to young, fit, bold travelers that want to road trip but think that road trips by their nature, include a car full of fun, interesting and often bizarre characters....

We will take travelers to cool local and not so local historical towns, sites, and homes across the state. This might be historic or prehistoric sites, places that have mystery surrounding them, or places that are charming, mysterious, and beautiful.... The group will also do trips to events, movies and programs that are intelligent, controversial, or just damn interesting. We will also take trips that will be one day and two day adventures and will camp or do some rustic bed and breakfast/rustic inn for the night.

Young travelers, adventures and all outdoor enthusiasts are welcome.....All ages welcome, but we encourage youthful spirit, young minds, and lots of energy.

This group is primarily for people that are  between 20 yrs to 60 yrs old and who are active, FIT, bold, daring and easily adapt to new things and can travel with no problem. 

You must: Be in shape, have an active outdoor attitude, and have an eager, intelligent mind that craves adventure, culture and history, and being outdoors!

IF you are not physically active, don't love being outdoors, and don't own gear or a backpack, and don't know the difference between being a tourist and a traveler ( Yes, there is a difference), then is not the place for you. Why join a group that is not a good fit?

Also, please do not add this group unless you truly want to be an active member. I will delete you within a few months if you are NOT active.

As far as how I schedule:

I focus on trips that are rare, out of the way, and interesting to the traveler- not the typical tourist. I also like to do things that take a few outings and thus, schedule them several times to get the most out of the place.

Many trips and events are specific- which means they have a definite date and time.

Other trips and events have ongoing dates and repeating schedules. This means that the people that sign up or want to go can pick a time that is more conducive at the time- not when it was put on the calendar.

ALSO- The cultural and artistic events are some suggestions for everyone. I encourage you to attend them on YOUR own if we don't enough people to go as a group. I will usually go and you can look for me.

CANCELLATION: I detest people that sign up for events and cancel at the last minute. It really shows poor time management and is very inconsiderate to the event planners who count on numbers to do bookings, logistics, etc. If you are signed up for an event for a considerable time period and cancel an event last minute, I will consider removing you from the group. Please keep me informed when it matters. Thanks.

YEARLY FEE: I feel that charging for the group makes it more of a committed venture for you. The number of people in this group that join but do not participate has been high in the past and I am slowly narrowing my numbers to a more acceptable ratio. The cost per year is ONLY $3. You can give me cash at your first meetup or pay online. I think that's very fair :) 

TRIAL PERIOD: If you are trying to ADD yourself to a trip and CANNOT, its because you have NOT paid the yearly due. If you want to give me cash, and NOT use the online mechanism, please let me know. EMAIL ME. Dont just sit there twiddling thumbs. I can get you on the trip and make sure your dues are noted as cash. 

I am slowly whittling the group down to the most active members and those that are old regulars and friends. I am hoping to maintain a group of between 50-100 people. Its easier to manage and cheaper to pay for at Meetup.

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.
