What we're about

Public Group

Three things we got tired of hearing from folks:

1. “None of my friends are into backpacking! So I have nobody to go with.”

2. “None of my backpacking friends are available to go when I’m free!”

3. “I love the outdoors, but I don’t know anybody who can help me get into backpacking!”

Assuming that the above is true (and not due to bad breath, personal hygiene issues, or offensive personality traits) all you really need is some new friends who backpack! ;-) You have come to the right place! Relax and take a deep breath!

Backpacking is what we do! Check out our Message Board and Calendar. Look at our trip photos. We have some awesome, experienced trip leaders and instructors. We have several events per month. Come out and take a hike!
