This is a group for people who travel by any means necessary. For people who are compelled to get lost in unfamiliar places and inspired by new experiences, ideas, and cultures. This group will serve as a local base for the community of travelers in East Lansing: hostellers, couchsurfers, backpackers, car campers, location independent professionals, free and independent travelers of all stripes. The mission of this group is to both share stories, knowledge, and experiences internally, and to create opportunities to share our love of our hometown with those who share our love of travel, whether through organized events, educational programming, travel opportunities, or whatever you are interested in.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
