What we're about

Single? Looking to meet new people? Want to make new friends? Tired of meetup groups revolving around drinking?! So am I!! That’s why I decided to start this group. My idea is to have fun hiking & outdoors events to facilitate meeting great people and like-minded professionals. Events will never be at 6am or in awful locations that are impossible to get to with ATL traffic.

I’ll plan fun stuff like hiking a hidden trail you’ve never tried and perhaps a fun place to eat or have coffee/drinks afterwards. I work near the Brave’s stadium so a lot of these events will be in that area. And it’s a great one! There are several hidden hikes and cool spots to check out.

I do a lot of events and networking activities with work so we'll have icebreakers like human bingo, humble brag, show and tell, and other icebreakers to help us get past that awkward stage of meeting new people. =)

Group Guidelines:

1) You want to meet new people (singles, networking, friends, etc). You don't have to be single to join!
2) You are in the age range of 29-49.
3) You are nice and not a creeper; stalkers will be booted.
4) Dogs are welcome as long as the location allows it. Please keep them on a leash. 5) I'm not a fan of being a stickler about RSVPs, but repeat no shows will be removed from the group. We have started marking attendance with the app. Regular members will get preference to attend events (no shows get lower preference and are booted after 2 times).

****Please do not join if you attend to sell your wares to members. You will be removed.****

Update on Hikes: We are planning hikes of varying difficulty. I will rate these D1 - D5. Please be considerate to other experienced hikers and consider easier hikes or other activities if you are new to hiking. Difficulty levels:

• D1 - Easy; 1-3 miles. Pretty flat.

• D2 - 2-4 miles. Fairly flat. Some hills.

• D3 - Moderate. 3-6 Miles. 2 hours or more. Hills, you will sweat. Some difficulty.

• D4 - Difficult. 3-8 Miles. For advanced hikers only. Very hilly.

• D5 - Expert 6-12 miles. Expert level, very tough (we probably won't do any of these).

Atlanta’s a big city with lots to do, but it can be difficult to meet people in the “city that never reveals itself.”

Join us! Let’s make A-town a little smaller!

Rescheduling, Cancellations and Extreme Weather Policy: I'm not a afraid of a little weather, but most people tend to bail on events if there is a chance of rain in Atlanta. We also schedule some events that can create safety risks for attendees if it rains. Your organizers reserve the right to cancel, reschedule and/or change meetup locations at any time if attendance is low or weather looks likely. We'll make every attempt to update events and schedule an alternate meeting place if possible. Thanks for your understanding.

Participate at your own risk. The 30's & 40's Hikers & Adventurers Meetup assumes no liability associated with meetup events and meetup members, including: injuries, parking fees, event fees, food, drinks, medical bills, loss of property, theft, parking mishaps, towing fees and/or any other negative thing that might happen. In a nutshell: We organize events to help you meet people and make new friends. That's all we are responsible for. By RSVPing and attending our events, you waive all rights to make any legal claim against Meetup and this group's organizers. You are responsible for yourself and your own safety! Thanks

Appalachian trail hike 1 - Amicalola Falls to Springer Mountain Parking

Amicalola Falls State Park Road

Please read all of this before committing to this hike: Hello! I know we mentioned about starting these hikes in Feb. However do to the cold weather we delayed the start of these hikes! So, Welcome to our first Appalachian trail hike! This hike will start at Amicalola Falls and end at the Springer Mountain parking lot. This means we will NOT be returning to the same parking lot that we started at. Which means there will need to be some planning involved. It is very important that if you are still marked on the website as going, 2 days before the hike, we will take that as you have committed and unless you have an emergence, it is crucial that you show up especially if you have decided to be one of the drivers. I am willing to help get people placed into car arrangements the day before. However, The last thing we need is people scrambling the day of trying to sort out driving arrangements because someone decided at the last minute that they didn't want to go. Since this hike will be on a Sunday, I ask that a commitment needs to be made by Friday night. Most people's cars hold an average of 5 people including the driver. So for every 5 people you will need to have 2 people driving their cars. It will be up to your group to decide who will be dropping their car off in the Springer Mountain parking lot (the ending) and who will then drive over to Amicalola Falls parking lot where we will start the hike. Ending address: Springer Mountain Parking for the AT Blue Ridge, GA 30513 Starting Address: Amicalola Falls 418 Amicalola Falls State Park Rd, Dawsonville, GA It takes about 2 hours to get to Springer Mountain from the Smyrna area and it is showing that it will take about 50 minutes to get from Springer Mountain to Amicalola Falls. So allow for about 3 hours of driving time. So you can get to Amicalola Falls by 12. Please shoot to be there by 11:45. The hike will be 9.4 miles long and should take about 4 hours to complete. Afterwards, for those that are interested we will go grab dinner.
