I started this meetup to bridge the areas between Seattle to Arlington and Burlington to Bellingham so that I can include Stanwood / Camano residents in local outdoor activities as well as those events requiring a little planning and travel. I'm up for pretty much any activity that puts us outside, gets us active, interactive, and having fun!
First - please don't hesitate to join the group! I am open to children and dogs attending various events but please understand we need to observe various trail and logistic requirements first. With enough interest, I will plan strictly family friendly and / or pet friendly events. Membership comes with a minimal cost, can be paid at an event, via the "Chip In" button on our home page, or through meetup. Dues help cover Meetup's organizer fees and keep the group active.
Second - I would love some help so please send me your suggestions for day hikes, overnighters, cycling routes, etc... and I will do my best to work with you to schedule it. I can even set you up to host the activity if necessary. This way, we will make sure everyone's interests are served and can eventually offer multiple event choices scheduled for the same times.
Third - please make sure your profile includes a short bio describing the activities you like to participate in as well as a current picture of yourself showing your face clearly so we can all identify each other.
Last but not least - please drop your expectations as to how an event should occur and I can almost guarantee you will have a positive experience. I will structure the timing, location, and eventual destination but I've found the most pleasure and satisfaction in my journey. I've expanded my horizons, tested my self with new experiences, met so many new friends and seen so many wonderful things along the way!
