What we're about

This is a group for anyone interested in hiking and "bagging peaks", but at a slower pace. If you enjoy hiking but sometimes feel like you are "holding up the group", then you might want to try this group. I started this group because I enjoy hiking but I am not as fast as I used to be. I still "bag" peaks like Mt Tallac, Half Dome and Mt Whitney, just at a slower pace. If you are new to hiking, rehabbing an injury, not as young as you used to be, or just wanting a healthier lifestyle, come join us. This group is not about fast, this group is about the journey and the mutual patience we all need to make it to the top!

American River Trail at Sunrise/Goldriver

Wells Fargo Bank

Walk on river and bike trail paths of veried textures for 2 hours, usually 3.5 to 4 miles. Social distancing. 8:00 summer start time. Signup when you know you can attend. Please update your RSVP timely with changes. Adult only. 2 dog limit per event. Note if you will bring a dog. We walk at a gentle moderate speed with little elevation. The walk is on the American River trails in Gold River. We are standing, and walking around 2 hours. Come when you are not pressed for time in case we go over our time a little bit. We try to stick with the plan, but nature has its own pace. We walk in a combination of steadily and leisurely, with a few standing rests to take in the sights. We make time for pictures and have stress-free chats while walking. Plan on walking 2 hours straight: There is not a lot of bench or sitting rest spots, and sometimes it's hard to find your way back alone. We don't always take the same path back as we take out. Bring; Water (important), sunscreen, hat, and sunglasses as you like. Best to signup when you know you can attend. If you put yourself on the wait list, it is up to you to check back if a spot has opened up. Note: Well behaved, healthy dogs are OK. 2 dog limit per event. Put you are bringing a dog in the event messages. No children. Adults only.

The Amazing Race Adventure

California Family Fitness

READY, SET & GO!!!! Get pumped up agents for an adventure you won’t forget! No one is left behind yet one agent always wins. You don't need a partner to participate in the amazing race. Using clues I provide, you will complete what I consider brainless tasks. The first agent to complete the task wins a prize. When the task is completed you will learn of your next location. The prizes will be fantabulous. You can win cash, gift cards, and prizes such as a brand new DVD home theater system. At the end we will have a shaded picnic lunch at a location which you will naturally race towards. Where you ask? Well you will have to just wait and see. Hee! The drive from the start to the end of the race is about 20 minutes depending on traffic. The race is not on the road but at the locations. Remember to follow traffic laws. The cost to enter the race is $10 dollars (nonrefundable) which you can pay me through Pay Pal or Venmo. The $10 dollars will cover the cost of the prizes and also the time I have spent putting this together. Once you RSVP send me a message letting me know if you want to pay through Pay Pal or Venmo. This will save me time in messaging you and asking you how you want to pay. This event will happen regardless of rain, shine, floods, earthquakes and whatever natural disasters There will be other meet up groups joining us so this will be a blast! Below is a music to get you in the mental mood of racing and winning. Good luck and see you at the starting line. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y7Us60qtZ7M
