How did you hear about "Vegan Life Colorado" meetup group?

From the internet.

What made you decide to go vegan or try veganism, and explore a more compassionate, healthy lifestyle (answer as simply or as detailed as you like)?

I travel alot for my job by car throughout the U.S. I have worked in towns with feed lots and slaughterhouses, driven behind a chicken truck transporting the animals in small tiny cages and felt disgusted. One day after watching an expose about a race horse being sold and transported to Mexico for slaughter, and seeing exactly how barbaric and inhumane this was, in addition to the suffering of the horse, I just couldn't eat meat anymore. Everytime I see a piece of meat whether in a store or restaurant, I think of animal suffering.

What kind of activities would you like to see the group participate in, if you have anything specific you would like to do (note that our members are welcome to suggest and schedule vegan friendly events for consideration by our organizers)?

I would love to share recipes, volunteer and fundraise at animal rescues (I donate both to a donkey and horse rescue). It would be great to take the knowledge of this class and continue the process together as a group. Physical and mental aspects of health are something I would love to work on this year. I have an extremely stressful job and work out of state most of the spring and summer months. Camp, hike, anything outdoors are my passions. Maybe in the summer we could plan a trip to the mountains. I used to live in Glenwood Springs & Eagle, and there are some wonderful day hikes and also yurts in Eagle (Sylvan Lake) that are peaceful, quiet, and just wonderful places for weekend retreat. I also have two dogs a lab and a golden retriever mix who like to go everywhere with me.

NOTE: We only require a "YES" RSVP if you plan to attend a gathering. Please don't RSVP "NO" to gatherings you don't plan to attend. "NO" RSVPs only create email for organizers. Only RSVP "NO" when you need to cancel a "YES". Make sense? Thanks!

Introduction

I have not eaten meat for several years now. I am still working on a perfect balance of diet. I run out of ideas! And would love to work on the physical and mental aspect of my life.
