What we're about

2022 Covid update:  Please get vaccinated and keep booster vaccines updated to hike with the group. Even if you are vaccinated please consider the preferences of your walking partner. Some will prefer to continue to wear masks. Ask your walking partner about their comfort level in sharing your breath !
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
SWAG had its beginning in April 2012 when our original leader, Wendy realized it was time for her and many of us to either get in shape or back into shape. And what better way to do that than walking and/or hiking? We started with about 10 people and have grown to over 190 at the time of this writing.
We are a fun group of people who enjoy getting out and doing things together whether it be walking, hiking or any other adventure anyone can think of. It is a great way to get some exercise in, learn more about the local parks in the area and make some truly fantastic friendships along the way.
As most of you know there are a number of hiking groups in this area.  We have several hike leaders and a variety of hikes posted. If you are concerned about your fitness level please read the description of the hike or ask questions if details are not posted about the elevation, trail surface and distance. Nyla's hikes are about 3-4 miles but sometimes include hills up to 500 ft (Foothill, Shiloh). Kebbie generally has longer hikes with more elevation around 800 or 1000 ft.
By signing up for this hike, you agree to the following:
You recognize that there are risks associated with participating in group hikes and assume full responsibility for personal injury. You agree to indemnify and release from liability the leaders of this group against all claims, causes of action, damages, judgments, costs or expenses, including attorney fees which may arise.
As with most groups there are rules:
Membership: Membership is $3.00 per year -- due within 60 days of signup may be paid online via credit card. Message me if you need to mail the dues.  Dues cover the cost of SWAG’s annual fee to 'Meet-Up' and a portion goes to the payment system.
About Attending Events:
1. All events start at the time indicated. We may wait a few minutes if someone knows you are coming but don't count on it (out of fairness to others) as they have planned their schedule to be on time.
2. Please make sure that you click “Yes” to RSVP so the leader knows who and how many will be attending.
3. If you find that you will not be able to attend after your RSVP, please change your RSVP to “No” – even if that is at the last minute. On the activity page at the bottom right corner you will see "You're Going - Edit RSVP" This is where you change the info.
4. There will be many events posted that you either cannot attend or do not want to attend -- you DO NOT have to RSVP No if you do not plan on attending. Just delete the email invitation.
5. Please read the descriptions of the hikes. If there are hills and you cannot do hills for whatever reason it is probably best to not RSVP. 
6. Remember that everyone accepts responsibility for themselves. This means knowing and accepting your capabilities; wearing proper clothing; bringing your own water and snacks.
7. Please check the website prior to the event in case there are any changes. This is especially important during bad weather or fire season.
8. Note regarding personal responsibility. If you decide to attend the Senior Walkabout Adventure Group you are responsible for your own safety. Leaders, organizers and other hikers are regular community members like yourselves not experts and they are not liable for any injury that you may sustain while attending or hiking with the group.
We do not charge per event. However, there may be times in which you might be required to pay for parking or an entrance fee due to the venue. Those fees are paid directly to the venue.
Please note that the leaders and organizers are all volunteers. They are not paid and most do not have any training in leading hikes. If you have a problem with any leader please do not comment on that event page. Instead please message Nyla and let her know of the situation that took place.
Now...let's get that SWAG going...
