What we're about

Life is an adventure. We are a group of people with a passion for travel and outdoor life. If you are looking for new opportunities for great travel and outdoor adventures, and friends to share them with, you have found the right group.

Our activities range from a simple stroll in the park or a summer picnic to backpacking, canoeing and camping in a safe but friendly environment.

Our goal is to provide you with a variety of exciting outdoor adventures locally, nationally and internationally. The idea is to stay active, make new friends, and keep doing what we all love to do -- EXPLORE the world!

Hope to meet you soon,

Walter

*** EVENT INFORMATION ***

⭐️ HIKING ⭐️

EQUIPMENT - This is also a safety issue! Be prepared out there as weather in the mountains can change quickly to rain, snow, thunderstorms, high winds, etc... If you're new to hiking, this is a great site to help you understand what you need: http://m.outdoorgearlab.com/a/11070/How-to-Layer-Clothing-for-Each-Season

Certain equipment may be required for hikes ie. microspikes, hiking poles, bivy sack, bear spray, etc... Your local Campers Village or MEC store can provide fantastic advice about gear and layering. A personal first aid kit is strongly recomended.
