FYI, This is not a hiking group for beginners. This is not a group where you come to learn how to hike. This is a group for responsible adults and experienced hikers. This is a group that does not have to hang around for every person to finish up a particular hike. If you need help, please ask and you will receive. I am a Group Organizer, not a commercialized paid Group Leader. I will organize and inform to my best abilities. This is for camaraderie and the sharing of some incredible hikes. If you have an expectation for a hiking group to be ran like some professional Commercial group where there are walkie talkies and people designated at different levels of the hike, then this is not the group for you. I do not charge for the hikes and I do this because I wish to share of my time with people who have a like mind and like interests. This is a group where we will be doing different kinds of hikes beyond the normal every day hikes. If you wish to challenge yourself and truly explore, then you found the right group. This is not a group where you stick us on your Meet Up resume as a member in hopes to build a persona for online dating. This is not a group centered around social gatherings. If you join this group you need to be in good shape (not marathon shape) and be able to make good rational decisions, and be able to know your own limitations. If you do not log in for 30 days and if you have never attended a hike or have not RSVP'd for a hike in the future, our Auto Removal system will remove you automatically. You are always free to re-join right away. If you attend a hike, your membership is guaranteed for 6 months from the last hike you attended without having to log in every 30 days. This is to deter people who really don't have the same goals as the Group does. Our group does what is claims with no alternative motives, although it is a good by-product to acquire friendships from these kind of groups. Please enjoy!
