What we're about
Profile photo must show you, not a flower or your spirit animal! - In a sea of 100 outdoor and adventure enthusiasts 5% might be black or brown if you're lucky. There has to be folks like me out here who get turned on by the scent of firewood or are transported by breathing deeply outdoors (Your backyard does not count 🤦🏾♀️).
Some favorite memories involve being outdoors, camping, Skiing, Biking, Swimming, Beaching, indoor rock Climbing, Hiking, Traveling and exploring the world.
New activities to try include fishing, survival skills, Surfing, kayaking etc. Don't be intimidated we will go slow and accommodate newbies. All you need is a desire to try new things.
This group is for you, let's come together, build a fun and open community and promote black people doing non-traditional things. We'll do trips together and eat each other's food -- It will be great!
This will be an open, positive environment--No cliques but bring the attitude, personality and outdoor spirit.
Join Us... - See You outside!
