What we're about
The Out Cast meetup group is for outdoor oriented individuals who engage in activities (hike, backpack, bike, kayak, ski, snowshoe, climb, etc.) at higher than average levels of performance. To participate in these activities you need to be in good physical condition, and have plenty of stamina. Depending on participants fitness and skill level, some may find themselves lagging behind, and in some cases, possibly out of sight of others in the group. Should this happen to you, be sure you are prepared for a wide variety of weather conditions. Nature in Montana is unpredictable and can be very unkind so bring the appropriate equipment/gear and be competent and confident in your outdoor skills to ensure that you are able to either safely complete the event or be able to return to your car...possibly alone. Also, you are in grumpy bear and lion country, CARRY BEAR SPRAY, it will be your only defense if you get separated from the group and it could save your life.
