Hi, my name is Bonnie and I recently took over management of this group and hope to get it active again.
I've changed the name from Central Jersey Hikers & Backpackers to Central Jersey Condensed Adventures to better reflect the direction in which I'd like to take it.
There are many groups with an outdoor focus, but I rarely attend the meetups because they either take too long to reach the venue, or the activities themselves take more time (or effort) than I care to invest, or both.
If you're looking for meetups that mostly take place within an hour of the Driscoll Bridge, this group might be for you.
If you like social encounters that last between 1-2 hours, involving interesting walks, short hikes and bike rides (geared to beginners), this group might be for you.
If you like seasonal and fun adventures that you might not want to try yourself, like pumpkin picking, haunted houses, zip lining and ropes courses, or stand up paddle boarding, this group might be for you.
While it would be great for those of us who are single to meet a compatible partner here, this group is for couples as well as singles. All ages are welcome. Kids are welcome so long as they can keep up with the activity. Dogs are welcome provided they are kept on a leash and the venue allows them.
Let me know how we can make this group fun you. All suggestions are welcome.
