Where on the Western Slope do you live? how long have you been there? Where did you come here from? How did you learn about the WSA group and why did you join? Do you plan to be an "Active" member or is WSA just one more web registration for you?

I have lived in Grand Junction for nearly 6 years, having moved here from Wisconsin (Milwaukee). I first heard about Meetup and then found the WSA by looking on Meetup.

How and about what time in life did you get started with outdoor recreation? What are a few of your favorite outdoor activities?

Hiking & camping. Love rafting, but have only been a few times. I have a pair of snowshoes that I bought in Wisconsin and only used a few times - I'd like to get out on them this winter.

What is the most challenging hike, bike, backpack, 14er, canyoneering, ski/snowshoe, river trip or other outing you've ever done? How or why was that; and, would you do that or something similar again?

I work at the BLM as Volunteer and Partnership Coordinator and know lots of BLM staffers who could be interesting speakers for this group. I'm always happy to talk about volunteer opportunities with the BLM!

Where is the most scenic place you have ever slept in a tent, walked or biked on a trail or travelled by paddle or oar down a river?

I'm working during the week, so am interested mostly in weekend and some evening activities.

After you've been on a few events with us, what kind of event might you be willing to to initiate and share with fellow WSA adventurers? Organize a hike? road or mtn bike ride? an evening on the river? a ski or snowshoe on Grand Mesa? Or... ?

Thinking.....

Introduction

Hi, I'm Fran. Western Colorado is beautiful and has amazing recreational opportunities. However, my track record in getting outside to take advantage of all this place has to offer, has not been so good. This group will help get me back on track.
