Poll Opened Responses

What are you looking for from this group?

Here is a poll I created to try and figure out what everyones areas of interest are. I started this group in order to meet local people and gain local knowledge about outdoor activites. If you are interested in anything in particular shoot me an e-mail. I may know which direction to point you in. If you want to do something or go somewhere specific, let me know and I will do my best to make it happen.

Who is interested in doing some rock climbing at Petra, the climbing gym?

Several members have expressed interest in doing some climbing at the rock climbing gym, Petra, in Springfield. I went to check it out today to check on prices and hours. You have to take about an hour long certification class unless you have already been certified. The cost for this is $25 per person, but they will give us a discount for having more people. I need to know how many people are actually interested in doing this. I also need to know when people would want to go. On Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-8 pm they have discounted climbing for kids, so that would be a good time to avoid due to the crowds. They offer memberships and also have gear that you can rent, the prices are pretty reasonable. It is too much info to post here but you can visit their website at if you want to check it out. I have personally never done any climbing at a gym so if anyone else is nervous about not knowing what to do, you won't be alone.

Weekday Hikes

I have weekdays open and was wanting to know if there are people on here that also have the weekdays open. Hiking is so much better during the week, you miss the crowds and have most places all to your self. Let me know if you are interested in some week day hikes and I will schedule some if I get a few positive responses.

Lost Valley Hiking Trip

I have a friend that has graciously offered to guide us on a hiking trip to Lost Valley, Ar. I have never been there but I here it is one of the most beautiful hikes in Arkansas. The trail is a moderate 2.1 mile hike, with most of the trail level and easy. There are cascading waterfalls, a cave to explore and a beautiful stream to follow all along the hike. Below are a few different upcoming weekends we could go. Please select the one that best works for you and I will try to get it planned and scheduled based on feedback.
