What we're about

This is a sub group of the Sonoma County Wanderers. You need to first be an active member of the Sonoma County Wanderers. Once you have an established hiking record (50+ hikes) with the Sonoma County Wanderers and are ready to hit the road and see distant parts of the world then you are ready to join this second group! This is a hiking and traveling group. Adventure and fitness are the name of the game!!

Most important fact to be aware of!!

There is limited availability on the trips. If you are serious about traveling out of Sonoma/Marin county with the group then you will need to have a STRONG presence on the moderate-strenuous and strenuous Sonoma County Wanderer hikes. We have found that Annabel and similar hikes will NOT prepare you for hiking outside of California. I will always put the hikers that have been recently hiking the long strenuous and moderate- strenuous hikes consistently on the list first. Those are the hikers that are going to be prepared for these trips. Another hiking habit to develop to prepare for these trips is to sign up for multiple day hikes in a row without a day break in between. The trips sound exciting and adventurous but are not for everyone. If you truly enjoy the moderate 2-3.5 hour hikes the best and find yourself gravitating to those choices, then a SIGHTSEEING international trip is more suitable for you rather than a trekking trip.

This is a "heads up" that this trip is happening! A save the date! I will be opening up the waiting list shortly. I will be choosing the attendees by a combination of number of strenuous hikes done in the previous 4 months combined with experience with the group. If you are interested in traveling with the group please make sure that you have a regular and consistent presence on the strenuous hikes. Moderate-Strenuous and lower will not count because they won't prepare you properly for the trips. Look for more detail as I continue to work on the trip! We will doing a variety of activities and we will be self guided and driving ourselves in 12 pax vans. If you are willing to be a driver and have a history of strenuous hikes you have a greater chance of getting on the trip!! :) We will be biking, kayaking and hiking. The hikes will be strenuous but primarily out and back giving you the opportunity to turn around or stop at any point. As you are added to the "attending list" you need to send a non refundable deposit check for $200 to Leigh Skizewski 2305 Lytton Springs Rd Healdsburg,CA 95448 For planning purposes plan on about $1500 for airfare.

Early morning Pickle Ball practice at Howarth Park

Needs a location

It's getting hot and I have to move up the time! Bring your paddle and make your way to learn how to play. We are starting our own Wanderer league!! If you already know how to play please wait a few months to join us. This is for pure beginners only!!! We play at Howarth park. The pickle ball courts are by the tennis courts and directly across the road from Summerfield Theaters. Keep in mind that some of us are hiking first and possibly might arrive a few minutes late. Just make you way to a court to reserve it as soon as you get there.

Many of you wanted more practice! Please ONLY sign up if you can make it. (I know that it's me that has been the worst offender! Sorry!) We will do this only if we can get at least 4 players. This will NOT replace the official "Wanderer Team" practice every other Wednesday at Howarth.
