Overnight Backpacking, Car Camping, Exploring & Canyoneering
This is a group for those of you who love the outdoors and love to hike, camp and explore those hard to reach or seldom seen areas of nature.
This group will explore hard to reach areas like canyons and tributaries, backcountry wilderness and local and far reaching Front Range natural areas!
Some occasional car camping and off road camping will be mixed in to get us closer to our objective or just to enjoy a less stannous weekend in the forest or desert!
Anyone wishing to lead outings or meetups must meet basic requirements; Potential leaders must demonstrate the ability to plan, post and execute any outing proficiently. This includes but is not limited to properly planning the route and informing members of skill level requirements, elevation gain and loss if applicable, estimated time and itinerary of trip, communicating with land managers and acquiring any required permits and abiding by any park rules and regulations!
Pack it in Pack it out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Packing in your food and gear is a requirement on overnight adventures. Members must be in good physical condition and health, able to carry their own supplies and inform at least one member (preferably the leader) of any relevant outstanding medical conditions. These include RELEVANT ISSUES such as inhaler for asthma, medication or existing physical conditions that may put you or the group at risk.
I try very hard to make sure everyone is accommodated and comfortable in the environment we are traveling in and hope to here feedback from you after our adventure ends.
Please feel free to post outings at your description with the minimum of two parties signed up to announce.
Any advanced mountaineering, backpacking or canyoneering will require you to be proficient and/or trained. If there is an outing that interests you that require these specialized skills and knowledge please contact me directly and I can recommend a trained professional(s) or trusted establishment for you that I can vouch for.
Most meetups are free. However, some meetups will be scheduled with small fees if pay sites, permits or specialized equipment is provided.
I hope all whom sign up are able to attend at least one of our meetups as they are always exciting and fulfilling.
