Do you agree to change your RSVP from yes to no if you can't make it? Do you agree to call if you are running late (before you are late)? Do you realize that the GPS can sometimes mislead you?


Do you agree to make at least one meetup a year?

I think as a Co-Organizer, leading a minimum of 2 of the hikes each month, for the past couple years, it's probably time to change my response on this to a definite YES :-)

How frequently would you like to go on trips?

Several times a year.

Are you interested in overnight hikes?

Completed an overnight hike up Mt Rainier this summer (up to Camp Muir), carrying a 40 lb pack. So, I would say yes. :-)

Do you know any areas that are great for hiking and within a couple of hours drive? If so, please list some of your favorites.

Yes, but I prefer ones further out, just because they tend to be prettier. I don't like killing myself for a hike with no scenery. Granted, I realize that we are not going to have anything as pretty as Washington, but there are still some nice spots, mostly in the Smokies or the Ozarks.


Originally from Washington State, I love the outdoors and am a former Boy Scout leader. I have 2 sons, and almost all of our vacations are in the outdoors.

What Gavin A. is saying about this Meetup Group

Great group. Enjoy the hikes and my fellow hikers!
