What we're about

GUGOOS are a laid back fun bunch of folks who like to spend time enjoying the outdoors! Join us on our adventures - hiking, kayaking, surfing, backpacking, bungee jumping, food, skydiving, sailing, white water rafting, urban hikes etc.

We do encourage networking and going on side trips and spur of the moment trips. Feel free to post a trip and/or a RFI on the message board.

The organizers are great people who want to explore the environment outdoors. Please respect them and their decisions. Keep in mind we are not tour guides.

All Adventurers welcome!

We do have a few rules -

Treat folks as you would want to be treated.

Always treat folks and the environment with respect.

We do not advertise personal businesses and agendas nor do we sell products in this group.

I look forward to seeing you at one of our events!
