A group of folks in the Greater Washington DC area bound by the belief that life is best taken one step at a time. Events are primarily day hikes (from easy to difficult), but include other outdoor activities and occasional social ones.
"It's quite a feet" hike rating:
- Easy, less than 2 blisters
- Moderate, 2 to 3.5 blisters
- Difficult, greater than 3.5 blisters
where 1 blister = about 5 mi., or about 2500' up or down.
Events are often also listed on the websites of the Sierra Club Potomac Region Outings (SCPRO; www.sierrapotomac.org) and/or the Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC) Washington DC Chapter (www.amc-dc.org).
For members used to Meetup groups: There are no stupid Meetup reminders (unless I forget to check the box); instead, you'll get one or two emails per month from me about upcoming events. I've been told this is much more annoying.
Finally, RSVP'ing on Wandering Soles for events is nice, but does not imply a commitment. If an event is limited in participation or requires a registration, you'll be asked to RSVP directly to a (hopefully) live human being.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
