Details

If anybody is new to Meetup or nervous about attending trips with new people, my observation is many people are friendly and share your desire to enjoy life & nature, and make new friends.

If anyone feels shy or scared, if it would help, the following are our past trips, which show what our trips are like.

Believe it or not, some group members appear to have had a good time.

I deleted all the pics of people who grimaced and looked mad/unhappy. Kidding. ;)

____________________________________________

Hi.

This group is intended to be open, inclusive, inviting, welcoming, and community-based.

Ideally, this should feel like it's your group and each member can offer ideas, share suggestions, and plan events.

Some of you are active in other groups (hiking, outdoor activities, etc.). So you know some groups have one or a few organizers who plan, schedule, and host events.

Well, has anyone ever encountered?:

• you see a hike or other activity you want to join, but it's full (or crowded)

• you see something you want to do, but scheduling doesn't work out, and you can't attend

• you have a great idea for a hike/event, but since you're not an organizer, they won't let you post your idea

____________________________________________

Many of you are more experienced and knowledgeable than me, and have a myriad of fun ideas.

If anyone wants to suggest and lead a hike or other get-together, just lmk the relevant info & details (what, where, when, etc.) and if it seems appealing for the group, it can be set up.

Message me on Meetup via:

https://secure.meetup.com/messages/?new_convo=true&member_id=69743242&name=wise%7Cman

____________________________________________

If anyone wants to plan and lead a backpacking trip or camping trip, same thing, just lmk.

Caveat: one small request...for anything involving money, my preference is everyone be honest, fair/reasonable, and transparent.

I've seen a few people/groups charge a lot of $ for trips (e.g. $60 - $100+ for camping trips).

Some people/groups charge a fair and acceptable fee.

For those who charge a high price, I understand it's their right and prerogative to determine what amount of $ they want.

It takes a lot of time and energy to plan, coordinate, manage, and oversee an event; and a host/leader is justified in expecting to be fairly compensated and reimbursed. Nobody should lose $ for organizing an event.

However, nobody wants to be ripped off, exploited, or over-charged...so if anyone decides to plan a backpacking trip, camping trip, or day-trip, thank you for making it fun and reasonably priced for everyone.

If anyone wants to plan and lead a day-trip or weekend trip, same thing, just lmk.
