Hiking, Biking, Canoeing, Golfing, Kayaking, Camping, in the Summer.

Snowboarding, Snowshoeing, Hiking, Skiing (downhill/XC), actually anything to do with being outdoors, will be a focus for our group. I mean we do live in the Upper Midwest, so getting outside all year round is important to us.

Take a look at what’s happening, find something that looks interesting, and e-mail the organizer taking the lead to find out more. The sooner you get involved, the more people you'll meet, and the more familiar and fun it begins to feel.

Don't you think you deserve some fun in your life and more people to enjoy life with?! Come and check us out. After all it's FREE to sign up and in these tough economic times that's a real plus!

Please check out the video on our "About" page. What a hoot!

A few notes for the hike: *The groups will be randomly split the day of the hike to meet the state guidelines. *Masks will be required due to the rise in Covid19 cases. *Also, due to the limited number of people that can attend safely due to Covid19 cases, attendance will be tightly managed. The event leader reserves the right to restrict participation based on prior attendance history, or if you are signed up for multiple, concurrent events that conflict with this hike. *If you are on multiple going lists you have 24 hours to cancel one of the events. *A valid name will be required to hike There will be two hikes (cross posted under Outdoor & Snow Lovers) meeting and ending at the same location and time, but each group will go a different direction. We hike for approximately 6 miles at a 15:30 to 15:45 minute mile pace. Routes are varied and not planned so we can experience all different scenery (no maps provided). Want to go further? Join the leaders for a prehike for about 2 miles starting at 8:45 AM. We will be back for the main hike. Not sure how fast 15:30 minute miles are? Check out your time with a free app that uses GPS for your smart phone or watch. Map My Run is a good option and what is used to monitor the pace on the hike. Drops after 8:30 AM Saturday morning OR individuals that are signed up and do not attend the hike (without explanation) will be considered no-shows. Future attendance for no-shows will be limited. These hiking events frequently have waitlists. If you decide you will not attend (whether on the "going" or waitlist), we ask that you update your RSVP as "not going", as soon as you have determined this. Those who are on the waitlist but would like to attend will appreciate this. Unfortunately, the social gathering afterwards is cancelled. To make sure everyone's health is protected, stay at home if: 1. you have symptoms of the flu 2. have recently traveled overseas to a country under a CDC level 3 warning/level 4 Department of State warning 3. if you have been in contact with someone positive for the Coronavirus until you test negative.
