What we’re about
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3m0QHKn1eGc. This is link to our TV 41 NEWS STORY...6000+ hikers ago. It explains us well:)
Welcome, and thank you for joining THE LARGEST MEETUP IN THE MIDWEST! Many groups copy us, but we're the original. NIGHT HIKES, SLOW PACED MORNINGS, FULL MOONERS and many others, began with THIS group.
Please respectfully share our events, without copy and paste descriptions. It's not fair to those that volunteer their time scouting locations and doing the homework, to be plagiarized by others.
We've become one of THE LARGEST HIKING MEETUPS WORLDWIDE!... (OUT OF 10,000+ HIKING GROUPS, WE ARE CURRENTLY #100!, and #55 in the US!)... That achievement is because of the fun participation of our members, and the pioneering efforts of our leadership team.
When you have time, look at our photos. Select any PAST MEETUPS and enjoy a slideshow. It's fun and will further introduce you to some of the great people you will meet!
Also consider our other group...MOKAN DAYTRIPPERS. (Click on my profile picture to find :) Seeya soon.
Sincerely Rich & Oksana
This Meetup caters primarily to the casual hiker that likes to get out and spend a few hours in nature. We generally hike for about two hours at each event, and hit trails all over the Kansas City area, and occasionally the Midwest region. We also do other events unrelated to HIKING, which provide opportunities to get out and enjoy some great areas, music and social gatherings.
If you would like to become an organizer, drop me a line.
