Google search - I'm already a member of another Meetup group, and I was looking for one that centered on hiking.
A friend got me interested in hiking a couple of years ago, but he lives out on the West Coast, so I never go around here. I've done some moderate to strenuous hikes with him. But I'd be interested in anything except really challenging hikes. I like the activity, but I'm also interested in meeting some new people from the area.
I moved back to the DC area about 3 years ago after 7 years away. Most of my friends have very busy lives and my closest friend just moved away. And none of my friends go hiking. So I'm looking to meet some new people and get outdoors.
