Santa Cruz, CAUSA
Hometown: Washington, DC
October 1, 2011
A familiarization with the region and what it has to offer as far as outdoor activities, as well as meet new local people.
I'm an outdoor rookie, so if there are beginner-level hikes that can be put together, that would be a great start for me. Also, I'm a little short on gear, so maybe a thread can be authored that can talk about "the essentials" for things like hiking and biking in nature.
I'm new to Santa Cruz, having moved here from the Washington, DC area. I'm looking to participate in some outdoor activities to improve my health and general well-being, while discovering what this incredible part of the world has to offer.
