(POE) Portland Outdoor Enthusiasts is a group that includes all kinds of outdoor activities for those in search of serious friendships and are committed to the groups success. Spring, Fall and Summer Hiking will be the main activity mixed with some backpacking, camping, adventures like rafting, Zip Lines... Winter time expect ski and boarding trips to Bachelor, Crystal Mountain, Whistler and the Powder Highway mixed with some back country, snow shoeing, Cross Country and winter hiking.
Expect a more casual pace, with lots of photographic stops. Outdoor activities are to enjoy the outdoors, fitness is a by product not the goal.
All are welcome. Dues are activated on this group to keep the membership to a core group and to form an effective a working bond with one another. You can try out the group for 6 months free.
Be ready to COMMIT !!!!! Some events have a deposit to offset cost of booking venues and making reservations. If your not the type to make and keep commitments then you might want to skip this group.
It is understandable that extended situations arise which interfere with weekend plans. However joining events just in case better plans don't come up will get you removed without good excuses. Repeated unexcused dropping out short notice will also get you removed from the group. If you typically RSVP for multiple events on the same weekend and pick best option at last minute. This group is NOT for you.
This group is for humans only.
