**** Note**** This group will be dissolved at the end of December. I'm moving the group to a Facebook forum. Please join us there:

What Renaissance Outdoor Connection was:

1. It takes the best parts from other Meetup group experiences that we loved replanted those into a new soil into one spot. 

2. We like hiking with a balanced view on life: noticing beauty and gorgeousness in both nature and in us, human beings… we love not just the workout, but everything else which makes us great human beings in nature and living on this planet… 

The Pacific NW is such a gorgeous and beautiful place and there is so much to explore and see here. This group's’ vision is to build relationships and lasting connections all while enjoying the beautiful outdoors. We provide an inclusive environment which is positive and encouraging. We love all that the NW nature has to offer. We love to talk about life and conduct philosophical and deep conversations… singing, music, fellowship, cooking, irreverent humor, and laughing best describes our atmosphere around campfires and in general. We enjoy the journey not just the end goal. We like to get a good workout, yet enjoy and appreciate the experience along the way often culminating with good food and drink! 

We value personal growth, empowerment, and building friendships that can extend beyond the borders of this group. For many of us, the Meetup experience changed our lives in powerful and meaningful ways and we want to give that back to you in the hopes that you will pay it forward, one person at a time. If you share the same vision then please come and join us and we hope you’ll stay. Many of us come from diverse backgrounds. Many of us are seeking connection and inner peace not only with nature but with other people. Perhaps you have your own experiences to offer and share with this group too. We want you to feel like we are part of your extended family. 

Some of the activities that this group will be enjoying,but are not limited to, are hiking, camping, skiing, Winter sports, nature and night sky photography, star-gazing,  dinner parties/potlucks,  campfires with music and singing, backpacking, etc. We are open to new ideas and suggestions from all members and we will provide a place in which members can provide feedback and suggestions in a meaningful way. Most importantly, this group is about you…the members. Without you this group would not be possible and will not be able to sustain itself over the long-term. 

Thank you,
