Events range from Hiking, Camping, Rock Climbing, Rock Scrambling, Caving, Kayaking, Whitewater Rafting, Zip-lining, Obstacle Course Mud Runs, Downhill Skiing, Cross Country Skiing, Skydiving, Hang Gliding, Mountain Biking, Road Biking and Trail Running just to name a few.

Going on trips with like-minded friends is always more fun, and you'll find them here. We are a friendly, outgoing and quirky bunch who like to challenge ourselves and have a good time while doing it. Our group sizes tend to be smaller here compared to other meetups, but we feel you get to know people better and have a safer experience as a result. We welcome diversity, folks who can laugh and people who respect nature and all the beauty it has to offer us!

We do our best to keep our calendar busy with random and fun trips. Click Here (http://www.meetup.com/HOAGies/events/) to check out our Events Calendar. These trips include day outings, weekend road trips, vacations and other cross posted events with other similar meetup groups.

There is NO required membership cost for our group. If an event should require a fee, itwill be clearly stated in the description. If you're happy with the experiences you share with us we'd love for you to use the Chip In feature to help us offset the cost of hosting our group on Meetup.com. If If you'd like to give back to our group please follow this link: https://secure.meetup.com/HOAGies/contribute/

PROFILE PICTURE: When you apply for membership, please remember to post a recognizable picture of yourself so that we can identify you at our events. This helps both event hosts keep track of participants and attendees to recognize each other. It's also a safety measure if a participant ever goes missing from the group so we can get help finding you using your photo. This picture does not have to be a passport quality photo but we ask that you refrain from cartoon characters, nature shots with no subject, shots with multiple people of the same gender, shots from behind and shots where your face is mostly covered. Our members feel a lot more comfortable meeting and coordinating rides with real people that they can identify. If your membership is rejected please don't take it personally. You can re-apply anytime and will be approved once our criteria is met. Your application will be rejected if these requirements are not met.

GUEST POLICY: Unless otherwise specified in the event, guests are usually not allowed on events. If you wish to bring a guest please have them join the group, RSVP just like any other member and read the trip description and liability waiver. If your guest is on the wait list please message the event host and we will make every effort to accommodate them. This policy insures that guests are aware of the requirements for the trip they wish to participate in and that they agree with our liability waiver.

RSVP ETIQUETTE: Unless otherwise noted in the event description; we generally request if your plans to attend an event change, that you update your RSVP to "NO" at least 48 hours prior to the event so that members on the waitlist (if applicable) may have sufficient time to plan and take your spot. If you RSVP "YES" to an event and don't show we most likely will just edit your RSVP to didn't go if there are no members on the waitlist. If, however, there are members on the waitlist and you are a "NO SHOW" you will be noted as such. Members that accumulate "NO SHOWS" may not have the same chances of getting off a waitlist as members who are in good standing. Members on the list as "GOING" who have "NO SHOWS" may also be moved to the waitlist at the discretion of the event host to make room for members in good standing. We realize that some folks may sign up to multiple meetups on the same date to try to secure a spot with their friends. If this is the case, please reach out to the event host and we will try to accommodate your friends if/when possible. We once again ask that you please make a final decision within 48 hours unless otherwise noted.

LEAVE NO TRACE

- When attending our events we ask that you follow these 3 simple rules:

- Please Leave Nothing but Footprints

- Take Nothing but Pictures

- And Waste Nothing but Time

Members who don't show a respect for our venues may be asked to leave the group. We ask that if you show your favorite spots to others that you teach them to respect these places as well!
