What we're about
PLEASE READ OUR FULL DESCRIPTION BELOW BEFORE REQUESTING TO JOIN THIS GROUP (CLICK READ MORE). THANK YOU!
If you like spending time outside, getting in a good workout, and making new friends you will enjoy this group. We are primarily a hiking group. Events may also include walking, biking, kayaking, tent camping, backpacking, social activities, and more.
° We are based in the Dallas/Fort Worth area of North Texas. Potential members must reside in this area.
° Our group is for women only, age 21 and above. Our events are members only. No guest. No children. No pets.
° We usually hike early in the morning. If you don't like mornings we are not your group.
° To join our group you must provide your real name, complete the member profile questions, and include a current photo of yourself that clearly shows your face. No other people should be in your photo. Photos of your pet, your family, scenery, a potted plant, etc. are not accepted. Also photos that are too small or anything where your face is not clearly visible will not be accepted. We want to see you, so we can recognize you at our events. This is required both to join our group and ongoing to maintain membership. (Please note: From Meetup we cannot see your Facebook profile photo. We only see your Meetup profile photo and that is the one that must adhere to these guidelines.)
° Our group is free. There is no fee to join the group or participate in our hikes. Members are responsible for their own fees at the locations we visit.
° Outdoor activities can be dangerous and may result in injury or worse. Event leaders are not guides. They are simply hikers like you, that are willing to help gather people together. If you would enjoy helping our group by occasionally leading an activity please contact our main group organizer for more information.
° You agree by joining our group to hold harmless all members of Outdoor Connection to include our members, group organizers, and event leaders. By joining our events you assume all risk and are responsible for your own physical safety and your property.
~~ Take the time out of your busy life and make a connection - a connection to nature, to new friends, and most of all to yourself. ~~
