À propos de ce groupe

Our sister groups https://tr.im/MoreToExplore & https://tr.im/IWantToDoThat

The mission of this group is its name.

"I wanted to do that! . . . Just not alone" aims to be positive and safe environment for members to experience things that, for whatever reasons, you longed for but weren't able to do before. Everyone is welcome.

Los Angeles is vibrant and diverse city. We have the opportunity to explore it and make new friends while doing so. Meetup is one of the few (maybe only) websites dedicated to having it's participants get offline and do things in reality.

There are no strangers here; Only friends you haven't yet met. (William Butler Yeats )

EVERYONE IS WELCOME INTO THE GROUP!

(Legal note: The "I Wanted To Do That, . . . Just Not Alone!!!"™ and it's derivations are Trademarked. Trademark infringement will be aggressively prosecuted.

About the Organizer: Truth be told I am more un-organized that organized. Even so . . . . I try. I found meetup to try and get more fit and was doing the hiking meetups. Eventually I saw meetup had other more social things and I went to some. They were not decent at all, many focus on lots of drinking and hooking up. Many years ago I was a Summer Camp Director, and I thought: "I can do better than that." So instead of complaining, one day a meetup organizer had stepped down and I thought I would give it a shot. That was about 6 mos ago. So my events might just have the same feel as Summer Camp, . . . but for adults. Most events are free. There are a few that cost. Those do make enough to cover the Meetup fees. I do extend out to lots of other organizers, as a good community is made of many and diverse voices and people.

This is a place where everyone can just come as they are, and mingle with people who are like them AND who are NOT like them. We are not limited, restricted or exclusive by age, gender, gender preference, national origin, relationship status, etc. To put it more simply this group is open to all. All ages, all genders, all sexual orientations, all types - And that includes you!!!

There are plenty of meetups that exclude based of one reason or another. Or there plenty meetups where people self segregate. This meetup is neither of those. Diversity is coveted here. People are not monochrome and neither are we. You will fit in perfectly and find a lot of folks who just like you in certain aspect, and differ from you in others. It's the good kind of variety of life.

Some events on this group may specify limits at times. Those will be clearly noted when needed. At times they may be age delineated, or even gender related. Limits are placed often as a means to control size. The event can then be repeated/recycled with a different limit range. If there is an event you really wish to go to with a limit, . . . please contact me. You can be the impetus and the catalyst for the next event in the different limit/range. Other times the limit can be waived or bent as needed.

Challenge yourself and importantly, BE yourself and expand your horizons and comfort zone. Let your hair down! Go wild! Be open minded and be non-judgmental. The group is based off quality events to bring people together from positive social interaction. Anyone who wants to explore an alternative, bohemian, experimental, strange, obscure, weird, wild, absurd, bizarre, avant garde, unconventional, wild-at-heart side of Los Angeles is welcome!

In the interest of making events successful . . . I will spread events across other meetup groups to bump up attendance. For as you know, . . . sometimes people don't show up. Some Organizers get really bent out of shape about that. I do however know that life happens. Even if it's 10 mins before the event. Just change your rsvp. No worries. No harm-no foul. There is not any sort strikes or penalty system, and there is nobody keeping score. The exception will be if it is listed as a "no flake" event. On those you gotta give good notice of changes. It's about fun and community. What I have found is that by being mellow and and having good events more show up. We tend to have 80% or more attendance. I approach with compassion. So if you don't make one event or another. . . try and make it to the next, or the one after that. When you do make it, .. . . we will be glad you are there and all are welcome.

Here are the basics of group rules.

Do NOT contact members who you have not met in real life.

Avoid Put Downs.

Speak For Yourself.

Listen To Others.

You Have The Option To Pass.

Expect Unfinished Business.

While there are flexible attendance rules. There are sex/gender related rules. As a guideline do not message people you have not met in person. This is not an online dating place. Ladies: If a guy messages you please contact me. There have been problems with that happening over meetup in general. It's just not cool. Meetup is about real life and not virtual. Guys, . . . get off your computer and come to an event. Say hello in person. Smile, . . . be personable and decent. And just be there to get to know people and make friends of whatever gender. You can always use new good friends. And this is one way to make/meet them. Wingman tactics and and Pickup artist tactics are similarly not allowed in this group. Organizers of another group that are not an organizer or host here are also not allowed to solicit members.

The rest of the rule are just good ways to live and be.

These rules apply here AND on like-minded sister groups. So it also applies on the following

Photo and Name: You are allowed to join with whatever name and whatever photo. HOWEVER the main organizers may request you change either name or photo a their discretion. Names that are products, promotional, advertisements are red flags that will be requested to change or be removed. If you are using a photo that is not your face, a current face photo may be requested. Here is the rule of thumb. Fake name and fake photo will be requested to change to a real photo and a real name or face removal. Real photo and fake name is usually fine. Fake photo and real name is usually fine.

IF you need to maintain privacy of both then contact the main organizers and just ask. That's all it takes usually.

All organizers on the group do have different set of rules.

The rules simplified.

• No Emailing (do not use the bulk email feature in any way)

• No outside links

• Great Copy

• Great Pix

• 4 weeks notice is best.

• List any money costs in the first 2 or 3 lines.

Not too many rules. Not too complicated. They all have to do with respect for the membership.

Let's talk a little more about age: Are you in your 20s 30s 40s 50s 60s 70s 80s 90s ? (btw some write 20's 30's 40's 50's 60's 70's 80's 90's ). I am often asked "What age range is this group?" 20 40 maybe? 30 50 perhaps? Or even 60 70. Forties ( forty's forty ), Fifties ( fifty's fifty ) of sixties ( sixty's sixty ) or older does matter. 24-39 3000 20+ 30+ 50+ 60+ & under or over. We are just aiming at good community.

Yeah, . . . All that is great, . . . But I still have one question, . . . What age is your group?

Age is a state of mind. And our state (this group) has no borders.

If so then you may be looking for us!

We do NOT discriminate by age, sex or gender, gender preference, origin, religion, belly button lint, etc . . . .

Do you enjoy friendship, activities, key networking, casual socializing, parties learning, sharing, inspiration? You do!?!?! How about personal and professional development with active nerd adult ( adults ) who like adventure ( adventurers, adventures, adventurous ) stuff that may involve silly dance game ( games ) and cool nerds with addicting, amazing fun? Great!!!! There will be sweet things to discover while engaging in retro revival underground unique geeky exploration of fringe play plus speed punk quirky sophisticated spectacular geek socials with high society making savvy friends. It will be an offbeat odyssey of an outing to nerdy paradise and we will party at random places (see locations below). Come and share fine no flake ( flakes ) fun that is free or inexpensive and goes late into the lovely night. Left, right or center, we will live life together and enjoy.

We do some sports related events. Are you interested in teammates players for your sport or hobby? Such as bowling, trivia, camping, biking, hike, hikes, hiking, snowboarder, snowboarding, ski, skiing, kayaking? Or even related to bmi, exercise, fitness, healthy, lock pong, recreation, recreational, outdoor, york Halloween, mammoth mountain, St Patrick's, Ensenada, un scrabble solitaire poker or more!!! We run the range.

A bigger majority of what we are cultural ( culture ), language, travel, music, arts, festival, performance, crave, dining, exotic, restaurant, food, foodie, architecture, art, artistic, urban, or ballet. But it does not stop there. We also do comedy, concert ( concerts ), cook, cooking, theater, theatre, culinary, cultural, tours, sub-culture, subculture sponge ( sponges ), performances, dances, dancing, museums, musical ( musicals ), bars, foodies, dinner, dinning, bbq, beach, restaurants, trips, cruise ( cruises ), cuisine. And even with all that we still to even more!!! Including, flea n farmer (farmers) market ( markets ), boutique, burlesque, crafting, craft, create, creating, sushi, pho, pizza, tastings, tickets, kim chi, tai kimchi, deserts, eating, festivals, film, films, galleries, games, karaoke, movies, sutra kama karma.And now the important question. Did we miss one? Oh. . . OK then, . . Send that so we can add it to the list.

Aside from the High Brow we do engage in the Low Brow such as wine, beer, drink, bar hopping, dive bars ( dives ), rave ( raver ravers raves raving ), hip-hop hiphop, hole holes-in-walls, crawl crawls, trance techno, dubstep, night nightclub, nightlife, nights. As well as classic club clubbing, clubs eclectic, edm electro electronica, pubs, pub speak, speakeasy, drinks, meet meeting mix mixer mixers mixing, greet, happy hour hours haunts, Did somebody say volunteer mingle? Let's DoLA or make a Timeout and TimeoutLA. LAist anyone?

So the High Brow and the Low Brow get together and make up THE KNOW BROW and that is all about people and who makes us up.

By ethnicity we very much match the instagram ethnic makeup of Los Angeles with Caucasian and Non Hispanic Whites, Latino, Black or African American, Native American,Asian, Native Hawaiian and Other Pacific Islander and others such as Middle Eastern such as Arab or Israeli, and many more from across the global atlas.

Different than ethnicity is Nationality, or National Origin. And again . . . from that we run the range European, Filipino, Japanese, Korean, Pacific Islander, Indian, Taiwanese (Taiwan), Thai, Vietnamese, Chinese ( China, Cantonese, Mandarin ), Hong Kong Mexican ( Mexico ), and more and more. Even USC or UCLA
And that makes for sooooooooo many languages. We like language and the culture it is able to unlock It brings English, Spanish second ESL and ELL and ASL are big here. Hebrew, Yiddish, German, French, And the gamut of others to translate ( translation translator ) with class (classes).

Tolerance is a main tenet here as we are Christian ( Catholic, Mormon, etc), Jewish (Jew Jews), Muslim, Sikh, Hindu, Buddhist, tech Scientology and more. And even Republican, Conservative, Liberal, Democrat, Libertarian, Bernie / BernieCrat, or even Trump or Trumpian or Scientologist. This is a big tent and since it's decent social we will all be decent.

What it comes down to is we are making new friends ( friend freind freinds ) and to be friendly. Almost like finding your entourage Made up of Men (man men's mens) and women ( woman women's ) and non-binary too. Members may be young or old, married, single ( divorce divorced separated and never married ) or coupled (couple as part of a committed relationship / relationships ). Many are likely singles and looking to date in one way or another. Going on dates or dating is fine. But it does NOT happen via using the group like Tinder, Match.com, POF or eharmony.

This group is about real life. So online messaging of people you have not met in real life is not allowed. Why such a rule?

Because it is heterosexist of you to assume that all people are interested in you. Like is says above there are married or those in committed relationships. There is is also the range of sexual preference in the group. Gay, lesbian girls lgbt lgbtq queer bi poly swing swinger swinging and any sort of variation such as transsexual and transgender. We do accept all. Even rs40 and rso40. We do NOT accept SpeedDating or Speedating or whatever you call it. It's forbidden.

Whoever you find cute, hot, sexy or find attraction to that comes in person. Plenty a match and romance or spark may happen. You may find your love (or lover). But you also may just make great friends girlfriend ( girlfriends ). It's just down to good decent social. Conscious communication and engagement that makes for self-improvement and improvement of others. Conversation and network or networking of professionals. That's just smart l33t leet api entrepreneur groupting that will lead to inspirational international consciousness.

We just added Game of Thrones GOT and The Walking Dead viewing parties.

Where do you do events? We do them ALL OVER!!!! I have taken the time to look at past events and the cities they have happened in and near and put it together with the upcoming location too. Our groups IS different, . . . we DO range all over the city. Here are where we HAVE BEEN, and where we are GOING!! All of it is obscure or obscura.

So I have gone in great detail to cover who we are and what we do. This is accurate and verifiable by going to our past events and looking that what we have done. This is all fact based on the breadth, scope and mission of this group.

If you have made it this far. Then watch this and then, . . .get off social media and on meetup. The social part of social media. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GEWnXmDfVZg

{Santa Monica/Rustic Cyn} Ascend a Slew of Secret Stairs by Flashlight!

• What we'll do --- This is a FREE 4.4 mi brisk walk by flashlight with LOTS of hidden stairs (15 stairways - give or take - and about 1466 stairs) in just under 2 hrs, with a FUN group, and hear some intriguing history to boot! ---- READ EVERYTHING BELOW PLEASE! ----- • IF YOU SIGN UP AND CAN'T MAKE IT, PLEASE TAKE YOURSELF OFF THE GOING LIST!!!!!! • GET THERE EARLY ENOUGH TO PARK - there IS parking, it just may take you a few minutes. Don't drive up at 6:30 and expect us to wait! If you're late, download the map on the link below and find us! • BRING A FLASHLIGHT, as it will be DARK. DARK. DARK. If you've never gone on an organized urban hike, you gotta check it out! (We try to do it weekly). Don't be afraid of the stairs - we wait for everyone and you can always bail out if you need to. Join us afterward for dinner at Souplantation on San Vicente & Montana (or someplace nearby)! Dog friendly (if your dog is friendly, can climb/descend stairs, and won't trip anyone!). Check out my page of historical photos and info for the area we will walk: https://socalstairclimbers.com/historical-info-for-selected-areas/rustic-canyon/ INTERACTIVE ROUTE MAP: Google Map, with start/end location, stairway locations, step counts, PLUS architectural/historical info & photos (click on the icons): https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mid=1m-dwaZD4uQ2uKdlzJPmAlQIpNeHegCrP&ll=34.03131317653276%2C-118.51417512301634&z=16 ABOUT THE WALK: Join us for a great break in your week — an evening walk through the beautiful neighborhoods of Santa Monica and Rustic Canyons. This 4.4 mile loop traverses about 15 stairways, with 1,129 up-steps (that's 61 flights for you Fitbitters) and 332 down-steps, and climbs a total of 612 feet. It's a great introduction for stairwalking newcomers, but it's also a challenging hour and a half workout regardless of your experience level! We move quickly but will happily wait at the tops of stairways to collect the group. Dave and Kristy Moorman lead the loop in the early evening. We did this 50 Thursdays last year, and try to do it every week. If you are concerned about keeping up, it's easy to bail out at any point, but we want you to succeed! Meet up at the foot of West Channel at PCH (Santa Monica) at the top of the pedestrian underpass entrance (by the Shore Bar / Restaurant Giorgio Baldi). The Hungry Cat is no longer in business but the address is right where we start. We will leave right about at 6:30PM with or without you! If you're a little late, download the map (see above) and meet up with us! PARKING - ARRIVE EARLY TO FIND PARKING!! Free street parking can be found up West Channel, Entrada, Sycamore, or Mesa - a short walk from the start. Some meters on Entrada are 2 hour til 8PM (Meters at the lower end of W. Channel are 1 hr. max til 8PM, so forget about those!). The beach parking lot is always wide open - fees are (kinda) enforced until sundown — enter the beach lot from southbound PCH and walk through the pedestrian tunnel under PCH at the west end of the lot - it comes out right at the walk start. RESTROOMS - there are public restrooms along the beach parking lot across PCH from the start. You can walk under PCH through the tunnel in less than a minute. We go right by there at the beginning of the walk and we'll stop for anyone who needs it. • What to bring: Water bottle / Sweat towel / Flashlight (or cell phone w/light) DISCLAIMER: Event is led by Dave and Kristy Moorman. Please ensure that you are in good health before participating in the rigorous activity that this is. As the organizers, Dave and Kristy Moorman (or anyone leading the walk in their absence) assume absolutely no responsibility for the participants. If you choose to participate, you assume all responsibility for yourself and agree not to hold the leaders, helpers, or any designated sweep (the person walking at the rear) liable in any way.

LA)Free Korean Action Comedy Movie: Midnight Runners- Crime Fighting Rookie Cops

Please message Josie the Organizer your full name for the guest list and get a private confirmation message for this RSVP. Just signing up here isn't enough! First come first serve. [Subtitle] *********************************😂😂😂 A Korean crime/ comedy/ rookie cop buddy movie? I am here for it!!! This looks like a lot of fun and thrills with apparently a lot of fighting too. Let's watch this and enjoy the mayhem, high jinks, and the pursuit. Film Review(August 2017/109 Minutes): Midnight Runners (Korean: 청년경찰; Hanja: 靑年警察; RR: Cheongnyeon gyeongchal; lit. Young Cop) – Park Seo-joon, Kang Ha-neul play crime-fighting rookies in hugely entertaining buddy cop thriller! After witnessing an abduction, a slow-witted jock and shy bookworm join forces to try to rescue the victim, leading to a night of comedic high jinks and shocking revelations After attracting recognition for his low-budget debut Koala, writer-director Kim Joo-hwan strides confidently into the commercial arena with Midnight Runners. It’s a fast-paced buddy cop thriller that proves the perfect star vehicle for young heartthrobs Park Seo-joon ( The Beauty Inside ) and Kang Ha-neul ( Mourning Grave ). At Seoul’s prestigious Police University, slow-witted jock Gi-jun (Park) and shy bookworm Hee-yeol (Kang) make an unlikely pair, but on a rare night out must become a formidable crime-fighting force, after witnessing the abduction of a young woman. Turning to the authorities for support, their pleas fall on deaf ears as the police are preoccupied with a high-profile kidnapping case. Gi-jun and Hee-yeol have no alternative but to investigate the abduction themselves, leading to a night of comedic high jinks and shocking revelations as they learn to apply both their deductive and combat training in the real world.... (South China Morning Post) Trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cyVk51ksx4o AFTER THE MOVIE: Let's go get some snacks/drinks and chat about the movie and life :-) Sometimes we walk and sometimes go to our fave pub in Ktown. PARKING: There is a big free parking lot in the back of the building. The parking entrance is on Dunsmuir Street side. KCCLA is right next to El Rey Theatre. Entrance into KCCLA is in the parking lot. It closes around 10p. We appreciate any and all donations so we can continue to offer more diverse tours and events. If you would like to donate, you can donate directly to the host at the events or go to our Donate web page.

The REAL "Bridge to Nowehere" hike!!!! Goat Canyon Trestle Bridge AMAZING PLACE!

Agua Caliente Mineral Springs Campground

Many of us have heard of "The Bride to Nowhere" hike in LA. Some have even gone on it. After all . . . It's not too hard of a hike and it's not too far away. Goat Cyn Trestle https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Drvc9ID6yJU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2E14QT58EJU https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dsHT6dfRFyU And if you like reading https://www.atlasobscura.com/places/goat-canyon-trestle or https://hiddensandiego.net/goat-canyon-trestle.php The second one he takes the approach from the north side and goes on tracks. That's MUCH longer. We are taking the route in from The east. Less miles, and also more rustic. Plain and simple this place is AMAZING. But it's far. As in too far to drive there and start the hike. So we will camp close by. This is easy camping, a hard hike and for those that wish it, . . . culture vulture tour on Sunday.

Even at the 6 miles round trip we will do: this is a desert hike. And THIS is why we are doing it in Jan the coolest time of year.

Sunday - There are options: One option is to drive home taking the cultural wasteland tour route: Obsidian Buttes Mud Volcanoes Salvation Mtn East Jesus Bombay Beach The International Banana Museum The Dinos at Cabozan. and maybe "The Pumpkin Patch" The other Sunday option is: "The Slot" or Calcite Mine Slot Canyon or Arroyo Tapiado Mud Caves Making options as Goat Cyn is a tough one. You might be blown for a second hike after. And two hikes on Sun will be too much. We will pack in a LOT!!!
