Seattle GUGOOs spend time enjoying the beauty and splendor of the Pacific Northwest. We've hiked along the beautifyl beaches on the Olympic Coast, zipped over rivers in Whistler, BC, kayaked the tranquil waters of the Nisqually Delta accompanied by hundreds of Harbor Seals and thousands of jellies, kayaked the rougher waters around the San Juans, traded our kayaks for bikes on Lopez Island, white water rafted and even parachuted in WA. Good hearty food has always been a part of our trips and sometimes we just like to get together for a brew or meal just for fun and catch up.
We are always interested in new ideas and new organizers.
Remember, our organizers are not guides; we are not professional outdoor trainers or experts; you are responsible for your safety and your preparation for events; we are not chauffeurs. You are responsible for checking the weather reports and arriving prepared for all weather conditions. Remember as with all of the Meetup groups, we have all agreed to the meet up terms of agreement. If you are under 18, you must be accompanied by a parent.
Join us on our next trip. If we are full, volunteer to start a second group!

Tips on preparing for a safe outing:
Before venturing into our state's amazing backcountry check the Weather Forecast. During winter, spring, and early summer, check the Avalanche Forecast.
If you're new to Washington state, be advised that Search and Rescue teams are busy year-round assisting lost, injured, and/or ill-equipped backcountry recreationists. You can increase your chances of a safe outing by equipping yourself with (and knowing how to use) the Ten Essentials. The Mountaineers offer an excellent low-cost hands-on navigation training course which teaches backcountry map and compass use.
