" OH THE PLACES WE WILL GO". This is a group for anyone over the age of 50 (not in stone) that loves to hike, wants to love to hike and wants to socialize with other happy people over 50.
I started this club to meet other outdoor enthusiasts and people my age that want to do fun events: looking forward to exploring the outdoors and social events with others. We will have local hikes, day hikes, over night hikes and social events. An example of an over night hike was a Sedona, AZ, hike the red rocks: it was a huge success. I look for the less expensive accommodations.
Example of Social Events; Trivia every Thursday nights. Music, dinning. We want everyone to have a safe and enjoyable outdoor experience. Each activity is assigned a difficulty rating to help you select activities that are appropriate for your experience and physical condition. The rating system is posted on the event page. It is important that you pay close attention to the difficulty rating and be realistic about your readiness. •Completing outdoor activities safely requires appropriate equipment and clothing and sufficient water, electrolytes, and food. It is your responsibility to come to the meeting place properly equipped. To manage a large group or to accommodate a group with a wide range of skills, the leader may break into smaller groups and appoint a co-leader. The leader will often appoint a "sweep", who stays at the back of the group to make sure no one is left behind.
