What we're about

Are you tired of doing things alone? Do you love doing things outdoors? HIKING, walking, biking, snow sports, all sorts of things :-) !! Are you age 50 plus? We are a four-season group focusing on outdoor events in a relaxed setting, a group that is welcoming and warm. Many wonderful friendships have grown over time among our members. Many of our activities are focusing on HIKING right now, but there are other things to have fun with!!!! Be forewarned, you must have a silly side to fully appreciate us. :-)

COVID INFO: As we live in a crazy world these days there are some things you must to to keep us all safe. You MUST wear a mask when you cannot social distance. I am limiting group sizes and often hikes or events are for established members only.

Join with like-minded singles looking for fun, friendship, and possibly dating if the chemistry is right. Our main focus is adults having fun together with no dating pressure. If you are looking for a dating site this is not it.

Outdoor adventurers need to be prepared for fun and great company! I'm really looking forward to getting outdoors as much as possible, and have lots of cool outdoor things to do. We will also occasionally enjoy indoor activities (mainly during the winter), dinners, bowling, let's see what else we can do together!!

This group is open to all single people, dating people (see note below), and happy dogs of such people. Activities are for adults only. This group is not for people in committed relationships or married people. If you meet someone in the group that is different.

For those in dating relationships, one aspect of our group is to be a safe haven for people who are surrounded by a world that sometimes seems to be Couples Only, please don't bring a date.

IMPORTANT: New people: Your RSVP is very important to me. If you cannot make an event that you have signed up for, PLEASE change your RSVP. If you accumulate no-shows I will remove you from the group. Sorry, if you sign up please show up. :-)

All events are at your own risk. Please read the Liability Waiver on the Pages tab. Please bring your sense of adventure to participate. NO GRUMPY PEOPLE!!! Most events carry a $2 Meetup fee. Please send me your cell number, I'll return with mine. For friends with kayaks, check out my other group, Newburgh Area Kayakers. :-)
