Re: [OCBackpackers] Why no trips?

....as an organizer for the Fredericksburg Hiking and Outdoor Group, they are suffering the same fate.  I also get tired of posting backpacking trips, doing the planning and nobody signs-up for FHOG.  The last 2-3 years, I needed to get some personal affairs in order....that being done, I'll be scheduling trips for OCB.  


See ya on the trail...!

I'm one of the original founding members of ocb (originally called l.o.s.t.), anyway, I've moved to Oregon and will only be joining trips if I'm in the area visiting my kids. However I did discover something about the hiking meet up when I was very active in it. Once it hits a certain large size (600 members?) a lot of the regulars break off into their comfortable small groups and the hikes are discussed and planned over a beer and never actually make it to the meet up app. This is what happened with l.o.s.t. and forced Chris, I and a few others to form ocb. 

Just my two cents for what it's worth

Hey guys,

wondering why we have 600 backpackers and nobody is posting any trips?!

Fourth of July weekend and we've always had a big trip!

Is backpacking dead?
