Howdy and Welcome to SECOND WIND HIKING ~N~GETAWAYS
I have made changes in the name of the group back to what is was when I took over Second Wind Hiking over 11 years ago but have added GETAWAYS to the name. I really did love the name Second Wind Hiking and never really knew why I changed the name.
Our hikes are an array of different types, skills, lengths, strolls to difficult and at times strenuous (not if I can help it!!!) and are usually followed up by an after hike get together at one of our local favorite restaurants or sometimes a picnic.
We will also GETAWAY from the stress we have to endure with on a daily basis and just hop in our vehicles and leave it all behind even if it's for a few days and hang~out with good folks. Mostly our camping will involve dispersed sites where we don't have to deal with other neighbors in a fee area campground.
All members are more than welcome to suggest an outdoor event, a weekend together of camping, hiking and fishing. I promise, you won't be turned away.

Purchasing a Colorado Outdoor Recreation Search and Rescue (CORSAR) Card. Why Buy a CORSAR Card? Colorado residents and visitors are well served by dedicated volunteer search and rescue teams, but mission costs are often in the thousands of dollars. By purchasing a CORSAR card you are contributing to the Search and Rescue Fund, which will reimburse these teams for costs incurred in your search and rescue. Funds remaining at the end of the year are used to help pay for training and equipment for these teams. Anyone with a current hunting/fishing license, or boat, snowmobile, ATV registration is already covered by the fund. The card is not insurance and does not reimburse individuals nor does it pay for medical transport
Medical transport includes helicopter flights or ground ambulance. If aircraft are used as a search vehicle, those costs are reimbursed by the fund. If the aircraft becomes a medical transport due to a medical emergency, the medical portion of the transport is not covered. The CORSAR cards are available for $3 for one year and $12 for five years, and can be purchased at over 300 retailers in the state. You may also purchase cards online. Please visit one of these links: Purchase Card Online With Credit Card. For the cost of the card, you have helped ensure that trained and well equipped search and rescue teams will respond should you become lost or in need of rescue. Furthermore, volunteers will not have to incur undue expense due to your emergency.
To add to the disclaimer the organizers of Second Wind Getaways are not reponsible for transportation to or from our destinations, reserving lodging including motels, hotels, campgrounds and resorts. Be sure to purchase a CORSAR Card.
I hope you will have not only a good time but an educational experience as well.
