What we're about

Welcome to your tribe! We are into nature walks, hiking, cycling, kayaking, backpacking or just share a love the outdoors. Add to your outdoor experience with a campfire, tent, and friends. You do not need a tent to participate. It is all about the outdoor fellowship experience. Most of our events are in the local state parks. It is all about the campfire. A lot of our members just come to the potluck and campfire then go home. Tents, RVs, camping trailers are welcome.
