Welcome one and all. I wanted to fire off a group email to do a great number of things. I will try to keep the email as organized as possible!
First of all, Welcome!
My name is Robert and I'm the organizing of the group. The Group had an amazing increase in members today! We had 32 new members join in one day! My warmest welcome goes out to all of them.
Please take a minute to read the groups "About us" page found right on the home page.
Over the past year my girlfriend Summer and I have taken numerous trips to Whites and Greens. Last week I had a thought. Is there a mountaineering meet up? Well there is now! Once again welcome to all you mountaineers climbers and backpackers.
Just like our about us page says, There are plenty of hiking groups. The Main purpose of this group is to include an overnight option on the majority of our outings. Also for those of you not familiar with mountaineering, the majority of our outings take place in fall and winter at least in New England that is.
The calendar on the home page is a generic calendar put in place by the meet up website. I have not edited yet as I am trying to get suggestions from members on the discussion board before setting out first meet up in stone. Please check out the message board and the suggestions offered. Please feel free to cast your vote and add thoughts. At the moment the calendar is likely to change so keep an eye on it.
CHECK THE MESSAGE BOARD! As I intend to use this tool for the bulk of communication for our members.
My goal for this group is to take a sport that is extremely unique and generally hard to find companions to participate with: accessible to all its members. Setting up group trips, and making it very easy for you to find a piece of rope to tie into on a weekend. If freezing your butt off on the side of a mountain is something you love to do then you?ve come to the right place!
Get ready for an exciting fall and winter. I plan to work my tail off to make this group extremely successful.
If anyone has any questions or thoughts please feel free to get in touch with me.
Meetup Mountaineers, group is for anyone with any abilities who wants to get out and participate some recreational Mountaineering, Climbing, Hiking & Backpacking.
This group is intended to form a community of outdoor, relationships and networks for members with some experience to meet other members also looking to get out on a more consistent level, doing mountaineering, climbing, Hiking & backpacking along many other types of related adventures.
Eventually this group will grow with experienced organizers of different levels and include world class people and friends. Hopefully in time, make some really great trips throughout New England and expeditions outside of our local area.
Welcome! Come join in the adventure & community...
“The world is so empty if one thinks only of mountains, rivers & cities; but to know someone who thinks & feels with us, & who, though distant, is close to us in spirit, this makes the earth for us an inhabited garden.” ― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
