What are you looking for in this Meetup Group?

Meeting people and exploring an interest I have had for a long time but hadn't had time to try. Uncertain if I can do it but want to try.

Would you like to learn about Backpacking?



Hi my name is Karen. I live on a farm raising 2 teens, our raw vegan food, and animals for pets. I am interested in backpacking, hiking - never done it - other than the occasional, take the kids when they were young. Uncertain where to start.

What Karen J. is saying about this Meetup Group

Thank you for the support and sharing your backpacking knowledge and willingness to include new people. It was so nice to see other families and acceptance of all levels of skill. Many wonderful kind new friends to get to know. I told my kids how they would enjoy each of you and the conversation.
