What we're about

This meetup is designed to fill the gap between day hiker, and mountaineer groups. This group will focus on unique type trips that you do not find often with the other groups. I try to avoid posting events that other groups post as the other groups are often good at leading those events with fabulous leaders! One of the goals of this group is to post trips far enough in advance to allow the mending of work schedules. Another goal is to open up new doors for folks interested in learning about the next horizon! We are happy to help the beginners and thrilled to learn from the pros!

The current big trips in the pipe line include, spring Steelhead fishing in Febuary if the season reopens, Annual Olympic backpacking trip, Salmon River multi day rafting in july, and a febuary snow shoe hotsprings trip.

Keep your paddles wet, and your boots dirty!

I wish everyone a fabulous journey!

Serenading a Pig Over The Pit.

Needs a location

Serenading a Pig Over The Pit 2020(hind sight is just bacon). This is a music themed pig roast and pot luck. This may not be the outdoor adventure that some are looking for but it is fun and it is in the field! This is an event I host every year for family, friends, and crews. I am going to open this up to the meetup crew. Last year bringing the meetup crew in was a super delight and you are all welcome back! Serenading a Pig Over The Pit 2020. Once again, with some extra stealth, and with the same secret wepons as last year, I have secured the bacon! Saturday June 13 is the chosen day this year. The stage is also returning. Well, at least what I call a stage. So bring a talent and a smile and join in the fun(you can just watch too)! Don't worry as this is an easy crowd and everyone will be great performers! After we close the stage if there is anyone interested we will construct a drum circle. The pig roast starts Friday morning but I don't really encourage anyone to join in that early. Saturday morning is better. I don't mind the company and help if any one is interested in the behind the scenes stuff. Festivities will really get under way by four and dinner is at five! We will open the stage up some time after six. This is a youth friendly event. At about nine I no longer can guaranty the validity of the last statement. Parental types you are warned. To some of my Washington friends; please remember that Washington herbal substances are not legal in Idaho and many of the folks who attend are subjected to federal guide lines and could suffer career ending results if exposed to Washington style grass burning. So, If that is a need for the perfect pig roast, then there is plenty of space and I can point you in a good direction. Don't start a forest fire. Oh, sorry to be the party pooper, but no under aged drinking. There is plenty of room for camping and I welcome it! What should you bring? A favorite side dish to share is a great idea. Always bring a beverage of choice! You may not like what I have to offer. Then again, you might. It is your gamble on that one. Bring a chair and warmish clothing in case it gets cool. Camping gear is a safe bet too. Don't forget to bring a talent! You can exploit your children's talent as your contribution if you want. It is ok to just watch. This is a rain or shine event! I got this covered if it wants to rain! To find the talent pig you want to head one mile north on highway 41 out of Rathdrum, ID. In less than a mile you will find Willadsen Rd. You should turn there. It only goes one direction(west). If you miss it, well hopefully your GPS will reroute you to turn around. If not, then don't miss it. Go to the end of the road and look to your right! You can't miss us; I think. We are in a cattle pasture with a tree island. Always smoke your bacon with a hard wood and I wish everyone a delightful day! James Primmer P.S. Examples of talent and not limited to may include music, stories, skits, jokes, acts, and what ever I did not think of. Be safe to you and others! There is a porty john on site.
