We are a group of friends and soon-to-be friends who hike, camp, wine taste, and enjoy music together.
Membership is $10 per year, after a 6 month trial (to cover the costs of Meetup). It is possible that for some events the organizer will ask for a small donation to help with the costs of planning. There will be no financial gain by any organizers. Some outings have entry fees, some people decide to carpool, sometimes we need a permit or a campsite – communal charges are shared among the attendees equally.
Note that we do not have leaders, tour guides, instructors, or experts. To describe and post a hike or other event does not constitute nor should it convey any guarantee of safety nor the assumption of liability. To organize is to assemble details, disseminate information, and provide a bit of cohesion to an event by being the single point of contact for the participants. All members are welcome to post/lead events, but please do not plan events on dates an outing is already scheduled (or even the day before/after). If you are posting an event, please do not plan to charge other than the necessary fees described above. This is not the forum for earning money by charging people for events.
Please read the description of each event before signing up for it. Some require careful reading because there may be a registration external to this website that you must complete, and the instructions for this will be in the event description. It's in your best interests to know what you're signing up for so you don't show up unprepared.
If you have questions after reading more about the event, please email the person who organized that event. Look at the address posted, or in the description of the event, for details on how to find us.
