What we're about
I’d like to create a community of youthful seniors - both singles and couples – who are interested in hiking, kayaking, camping, etc, and who are also keen on visual and performing arts and literature. It would be great to connect to those seniors who like to learn as much as I do and who may want to enroll in some classes at colleges. There are so many terrific instructors out there, whose classes I’ve been taking! By profession, I am a piano teacher and linguist. My native language is Russian, which I teach, but I’m fluent in English, and my best students are Asians. I have been hiking and kayaking with college students, whom I visited Death Valley, Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, and Zion with and whom I’ve been kayaking in Sierra and Tahoe lakes and locally with. It’s a lot of adventure. As a member of several Meetups, I try to participate in the morning hikes, which do not take much time. I am fond of kayaking and am a member of Western Sea Kayakers organization. I would like to connect to the people who are up for paddling at least once a week, who want to arrange lectures, in-home concerts or volunteer for good causes. It is NOT a dating site. I've got an unfortunate experience as an organizer, and I can tell that only those, who have hobbies similar to mine, and can bring something to the "table" of the group, are welcome to join. It's natural to look for "the best half" everywhere, including hiking/kayaking etc., groups. But, without serious introduction, posting a clear facial picture (no sunglasses!), it is not good to join the group! The keywords are HIKING and KAYAKING and CULTURAL EVENTS. In your profile, you are expected to tell about your hiking preferences (mileage, elevation gain) and your kayaking skills. Please, think of what you are Special at and make your suggestions to the group. What if you are a musician ready to perform for the group? If you are an artist, tell us about that! If you have an interesting hobby, which you want us to learn about, tell us! If you are in the software field, we'll be ready to leearn about your skills. The sky is the limit!
