Northern California is one of the most beautiful places on earth, and sitting inside is boring, so why don't you come outside and play!

This group is all about FUN and ADVENTURE. There is so much to do within just a short drive, that there are tons of activities to participate in year round. There are few places in the world where you can be on the beach one day, in the snow the next, and white water kayaking the next weekend.

So come along and meet new people that have the same common interests -- the outdoors!

Activities we might go out and do (definitely NOT an inclusive list):
-- Hiking

-- Backpacking / Camping / Fishing

-- Kayaking / Canoeing

--Multi Sport Racing -  Trail Runs, Triathlons, Marathons, MTB races, Mud Runs, Adventure Races including Volunteering to earn some good fun stuff

--Disc Golf

--Mountain Biking

-- Snow Sports (Skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing)

-- Running and Races (way more fun when you have people to race with!)

-- Orienteering

-- Just plain 'ol hanging out

We'll come up with trips for all types of activities and skill levels, so come out and meet up with us!

If you have a trip you would like to organize, feel free to do so under "Suggested Meetups" (requires Organizer approval, but that will be easy). If you have an idea for a trip but don't want to lead it, feel free to let me (Jason) know, and we'll find someone to put it together for you!

Also, check out the Pages link up top to find out more about us and Guidelines related to our trips.

Time to get off the couch and get outdoors to enjoy the better life outside to feel good!

So that being said, get signed up for an event and lets go!
