What we're about

Hello and Welcome,

Whether you are new to Chicago or have been around awhile like myself (64 years and counting) by becoming a member of this group you will get a chance to explore the Chicago area beyond what the typical Chicago area resident does.

Although it will take time to really see 1001 things in Chicago, we will give it our best shot and see how many we can knock out each and every year.

As I am writing this on February 10, 2017 I have just taken over leadership of this group. It has been around since early 2015 and even though I have been a member since the beginning, I haven't been too involved as I have another group (Chicago Streets and Beyond Photography Group) that I created and still lead. I have been doing that since November, 2014. But I feel there is enough overlap within both groups that I can put together some interesting meetups for both group individually and together. And now that I have officially retired from the corporate world and started my semi-retirement I can devote more time and energy to exploring Chicago with a new group of friends.

If you have any questions about the group, suggestions on outings, would like to lead an outing, please let me know.
