Ale House Social

We want come join us for a night of meeting and greeting and dining! especially all those new and current members who have yet to show your faces.  I hope you can come out and mingle (no, this is not speed dating!).


This is as easy as backpacking gets!!!  Climate controlled, prepared meals, choice of beverages, no bugs, AND bathrooms!  So, you have no excuse to avoid this NON-OVERNIGHT, NEARBY trip to Oak Park, Illinois.  We will be gathering around a table instead of a campfire, but this is a detail that will be overlooked, because Ale House serves decent beers that will make you forget you are not in the wilderness.  And, you get to go home to your own bed at the end!


We will talk about trips (old and new), gear, or whatever you want to talk about (okay, there will be reasonable restrictions on topics of conversation, after all, Ale House is a respectable establishment).


I especially encourage our new members to shed your shyness and show your faces.  You will enjoy yourselves and find yourself looking forward to the next opportunity to hit the trails with your newly discovered backpacking family.


All are welcome (well, okay, almost all).


DISCLAIMER....blah, blah, blah...we do not encourage nor endorse irresponsible alcohol get the picture.
