What we're about

If your looking for other LGBTQ friends that want to spend as much time taking advantage of the outdoors and seeing the sights, exploring new places, or just taking in the views; well, you've found your group. Whether you live in the city and are interested in stepping out for a short weekend trip to see a canyon or a waterfall, or if you are in the burbs and just want to find friends who love new spontaneous adventures, places to go tubing, or taking a long weekend to visit another major metro area, I am your guy. I've created this group because so many guys that I have talked to in the city or burbs want to leave the city for a moment and see what else is out there. Cedar Point, Appalachian Camping, Renting a houseboat on a lake in Tennessee, or even spending the weekend in St Louis checking out the scene are just some of the ideas that I've come up with.
