Next Meetup

APPALACHIAN TRAIL BACKPACKING
Sat. Nov 17th is National Hiking Day. I'm planning a moderate hike along the AT from Punchbowl Shelter to Brown Mt. Creek shelter and out to Rt. 60 at Long Mt Wayside. We'll depart from the BK on Rt. 17 in Newport News and carpool to the trailhead on the Blue Ridge Parkway. We'll hike in Fri night .5 miles to the shelter and camp overnight. On Sat we'll backtrack and head north appx. 9 miles to Brown Mt. Creek shelter. The route is pretty easy with 1 climb on sat morning up Rice Mt 2166'. the rest of the route is along a ridge and undulating terrain. Final 2 miles follow Brown Mt Creek to the shelter. Sun is a short less than 2 mile hike with a 3/4 mile climb to Rt. 60.

What we're about

Meet with local adventurers to plan trips and talk about camping, adventures, gear, trails, destinations and trips. This group is for people who want to get out there, have some fun, and meet others with similar interests. We are first and foremost a group of people who enjoy outdoor adventures and exploration. We regularly schedule socials and exciting outdoor adventures that vary by time of year.

Some possibilities: hiking, rock climbing (indoor or out), kayaking, caving, camping, white water rafting, biking, skiing (water, downhill and cross-country), backpacking, snowshoeing, hang gliding, rappelling, creek-walking, geocaching and anything else the group wants to try!

We plan day trips, overnight and long weekend trips, and some longer adventures - so there's something for everybody! It's your adventure club; what do YOU want to do? Qualified to lead a trip or teach a class on outdoor skills? E-mail me. Let's talk about it and I'll post it on the calendar. Let's get outside and have some fun!
