If you are specifically interested in learning about or doing backpacking, camping, and meeting people who eat GORP, then this group is for you. Nobody likes the raisins, and we all pick them out. Don't worry about that.
We are NOT one of the many meetup groups in Charlottesville that are tied to a business!!!
Although there are already several very good hiking groups in the Charlottesville area, this group is focused on camping overnight in the wilderness. We will hike, canoe, whitewater raft, or kayak to the sites, and a deliberate effort will be made to set up camp early in order to socialize. Bring your ukulele, a backpack cake, or a list of wildlife you would like to photograph or eat.
You will never feel like you are on a cub scouts trip in this group. I'll make it not awkward!
