My work ptoject in Columbia completed and I left the area. I enjoy Columbia MD and hope to return.
If anyone would like to take over this successful group please contact me at 646 498 3081. Meetup charges about $14 a month but you may charge a small amount at hikes if you wish to.
After work and on Weekends I propose taking a fast paced Hike in Parks and the Villages of Columbia.
No backpacks or hiking boots required. A possible bottle of water maybe.
Hiking has the connotation of excitement over walking so I will use that word but I really mean to move at an exercise pace even if it is a fast walk for 75 minutes. The evenings are getting dark earlier but I cannot get to Columbia earlier than 6:30 PM during the work week. We can meet at 6:30 with a 15 minute grace period and start moving at 6:45 sharp. At 8:00 we stop for a bite to eat at a restaurant or some kind of food to socialize.
A 10:30 gathering with a 10:45 sharp start time on Saturdays and/Or Sundays. We stop at about 12:15 to dine.
If you want to go on more strenuous hikes and adventures there are some great existing Meetup groups that I enjoy and recommend. The hikes in this group are designed for convenience and simplicity.
