What we're about

Some groups are too fast, some are too slow, and others are just too far away! The Johnston County Hiking and Outdoors Group (or JoCoHOG) is a hiking and outing group in Johnston County, North Carolina. Membership is open to any adults over the age of 21. Our focus will be to offer activities, both indoor and outdoor, convenient and central to Johnston County. Our regular activities include walking, local hiking, day trips, camping, and similar. Other activities will include go-cart racing, bowling, and similar. We'll mostly schedule hiking events that are convenient to JoCo.

There is no membership fee but donations are greatly appreciated to help cover the annual costs of ~$190 to maintain this site.

General Rules of the JoCoHOG:

• Your profile MUST include a photo that clearly shows your face and your profile name needs to be YOUR name. This is for the safety of our members. Failure to do this will result in removal from the group.

• Some events may have costs associated with them. These will be clearly indicated on the event description.

• When you RSVP yes for an event, you are expected to be there. Some events will have waiting lists, so if your plans change, please change your RSVP to allow room for others. Repeated No-Shows (3) will be removed from the group.

• Members that do not RSVP for extended periods are considered inactive and may be removed at the organizer's discretion.

• Not all events will be open to dogs or children. Those that are kid- and/or dog-friendly will be clearly identified.
