Please Read: This is a private group designed specifically for those who have had Poles training - a class or personal coaching (not a basic intro, clinic or simply watched the DVD). Please do not request membership if you have not satisfied the prerequisite (I offer classes all year long all over the Bay Area, so taking a class is easy).
This site is a way to announce outdoor events, outdoor classes as well as special deals I find that will help you enjoy your outdoor adventures. If I think it will help your health or quality of life - I'll post it.
We will be scheduling hikes that explore the best seasonal offerings the Bay Area has, but may include hikes farther afield (Utah National Parks, Desert hiking, possible travel options).
The beauty of the meet up system is that we can connect without me having to schedule 3 to 5 months in advance. If there's snow on Tam, let's go. If the flowers are exploding at Sunol - yippee! Weather manages our hiking and this gives us so many better options for practice!
The join fee will keep non-pole class alumni from requesting membership. Also, meet-up is fairly expensive to maintain, so your nominal fee will help support our connection to each other.
