What we're about

Do you want to do fun things and meet cool people? Who doesn't? The intent of this group is simple—to provide a setting for people do fun things together —that's really the best way to meet each other, in a way that facilitates real friendships and genuine connections! There are plenty of "20-30 something" Meetups that gather in bars and nightclubs, but I hope to provide an alternative that makes it easier to have meaningful conversation and actually get to know each other. There will be a range of interesting, and I hope, different activities (and I'm open to suggestions!) but all will be designed to break the ice and make it as effortless as possible to make a connection. Note: The group is for singles, people in relationships, or if you're somewhere in between.

If you have an idea for an event, send me a message!

ZION CAMPING Trip: It's amazing! Hike Angels Landing while you still can!

Are you ready for Zion? ( ... and Bryce Canyon)

Its legendary!
Angel's Landing.
The Narrows.
Hoodoos (they're crazy rocks)
The Emerald Pools
Much, much, much more!

Zion in the Fall. It's a good time to go. Zion is in sort of in a heat pocket, so weather is usually surprisingly warm. And if you want to do The Narrows, the water levels are lower, so that makes it easier. Plus, it's less crowded and shuttle reservations are no longer needed.

LAST CHANCE FOR ANGELS LANDING?
If you've always wanted to hike the legendary Angels Landing, you really should go NOW! I just found this out a few days ago: Starting next year, you won't just be able to just go to Zion and hike Angels Landing. You're now going to have to get a permit, maybe months in advance, and it will be a nightmarish lottery system , so that means you probably won't be able to go when you want to. (This is similar to the annoying Half Dome permit system.)

So yes, Angels Landing is just amazing and one of a kind. You really should try to join us.

ZION has that special, old school National Park atmosphere. It's unique. And Bryce Canyon right next door is totally different - full of bizarre towering golden rock formations called hoodoos. And even if youve been to the area before, there's a bunch more amazing lesser known areas just outside the Park you can explore! This is not a hardcore trip, but please be in good shape with some hiking experience

SAFETY:
We TAKE smart precautions:
Some people just TAKE your money.
But that's NOT how we do it!
EVERYONE WILL BE VACCINATED OR TESTED!
I also send you a survey. I ask questions.
I think it would be irresponsible NOT to do it this way!
I want to know we're all on the same page.

HIKING + CAMPFIRE TIME + HANGING OUT: We have a beautiful campsite for 3 nights. This trip will be ambitious but I like to keep it a good mix: There's amazing hikes in the day but when night falls, we eat and drink, hang around the campfire, play games, tell stories, and get to know each other. For some, this is their favorite part of these trips.

GEAR: You should have basic car camping gear. You don't need fancy REI gear. (Cheap WalMart stuff is good enough) And I also have some tents & gear to loan out.

Each campsite will have its own stove, cooking gear, etc & you can bring your own stuff too. Everyone gets their own set of plates, silverware etc.

RSVP INSTRUCTIONS:
If you want to go - RSVP Yes. (Don't forget: Give me your email address.) Then I email you a SURVEY w/questions. Answer them. You won't officially be on the trip until youre confirmed and pay.

(Event is crossposted on different Meetup groups so the RSVP's you see here show you an incomplete picture of who is going.)

Cost $130 per person.
We'll carpool and you'll split the gas cost with your carpoolers, of course.

REMEMBER: EVERYONE MUST BE VACCINATED OR TESTED!
