Welcome to Outdoor Singles and Socials Meetup group!

I DON'T RECOMMEND CARPOOLING UNLESS YOU KNOW (AND/OR THEIR DRIVING) THAT PERSON!! There are some creeps in Meetup. :(

If you're a female and looking to carpool, you may write, "Seeking female carpoolers." Women should carpool together and never carpool alone with a guy you don't know !

You do need a picture to join. This group is for normal people. That means no creeps, weirdos, peeps covered all over with tattoos, no gangsters, people with mohawks, etc.

FREE MUSIC w/2 GRAMMY Nominees + 3 Bands at the HI HAT / Highland Park

Appearing in Highland Park on Tuesday: Two Grammy nominees and...maybe even Jesus. Do I have your attention? I like live music and I don't go out and hear enough of it. This is the first in what could be a semi-irregular series of music events I'll be posting. I know money can be tight for some - and people are cheap -- so most of these will be FREE. What kind of music? Stuff I think I might like. So let's go to the Highland Park's HiHat Club, let's hang out, and check out these 3 bands: LlittleDNGR: ("little danger" - I guess that's how u say it) is pop influenced, electro-blues -- call it cinema grunge-pop. Equal parts brooding and epic, this musical love-affair lives in a world of cinematic soundscapes, anthemic choruses, big riffs and electro-beats. LittleDNGR are GRAMMY & OSCAR nominated songwriters, Joshua Bartholomew & Lisa Harriton; they've written tons of stuff but are most famous for writing "Everything Is Awesome" from The LEGO Movie. But these aren't LEGO songs: https://www.facebook.com/pg/littleDNGR/videos/ (ok, I could only find short song clips) FINAL CHILD: Tom Payne, the actor who played "JESUS" in Walking Dead back when I used to watch it, is engaged to Final Child's singer and actually contributes vocals to one of their songs so -- who knows -- maybe he'll show up to do his part live. https://youtu.be/k9yfK61PxhA TORII WOLF: Think Bjork meets hip hop meets ? https://youtu.be/OZblXekRxHc TICKETS: Tickets are free. I don't think it's necessary, but if you want to be safe go ahead a register for the FREE tickets here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/littledngr-residency-night-3-tickets-54778376599 HOW TO MEET INFO: Coming soon. And i know it's a weeknight so don't worry - you don't have to stay the whole night. Leave when you want. SET TIMES: I'll find out. PARKING: There is ample street parking in the area and most restrictions end at 8pm if not earlier. There are two adjacent parking lots that are free after 9PM but close at 12AM, please read all posted signage,

Charles Manson Family Cave and Spahn Ranch

Rocky Peak trailhead south parking area

It’s creepy and it’s spooky, but interesting and pretty. Imagine yourself in 1969 going horse back riding at Spahn ranch (once a movie ranch turned into a horse ranch). You arrive, and you don’t see the owner, or usual ranch hands, anywhere. Instead you are greeted with the notorious Charles Manson. He saddles you up and off you go through the hills, and the trails, and Charles’ hippie commune. That’s my true story and I’ll tell you more on the hike. Meet me at the south side (not the north side) of Rocky Peak road at 9:45. We will start promptly at 10:00. We’ll walk a short distance down the Santa Susana Pass Road then veer onto the trail that will lead us to Spahn Ranch. From above the ranch we will have nice views of the San Fernando Valley. We will then visit the Charles Manson family cave located in a creek bed (hopefully dry) near the pass road, not far from Spahn Ranch. This is a great place to stop for snacks and rest before heading back to Rocky Peak Road. Although I know the trails, I’m considering this an exploratory hike in case I take a wrong turn in which we will have to turn back. But no fear, we won’t get lost. I will provide more details about the trail closer to the date, so check back here. NOTE: Periodically check the meetup for any updates. If you RSVP, and change your mind, please remove yourself from the list. DETAILS: Distance: About 3 miles Elevation Gain: about 700' Difficulty: Fit beginner/intermediate Dogs: On a leash Restrooms: None Water Fountain: None Parking: Free Trail: Single track Known Dangers: Rattlesnakes, slip-'n-fall, poison oak WHAT TO BRING: 2 liters of water snacks Good hiking/walking shoes Sunscreen Hat Dress according to the weather DIRECTIONS Directions: From the 118, take the Rocky Peak Road exit between Simi and Chatsworth. Park on either end of the very short Rocky Peak Road, but watch out you don't violate the prohibited spots (they are marked) and make sure you go to the SOUTH side of Rocky Peak Road to meet up with us. We will NOT be at the Rocky Peak trailhead. DISCLAIMER / RELEASE OF LIABILITY: You must RSVP to attend this event, no exceptions. You are responsible for you.
