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 do to keep us all safe. Some hikes will start off with everyone on the Waiting List. I am limiting group sizes and for strenuous hikes I will need to know your hiking experience before moving you to the Yes list. Please be patient and we will be able to do normal events when this is over. If you can't wait there are other groups taking new people out.

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. :-)

Happy Birthday Mt. Beacon Hike!!!

Needs a location

Let's celebrate my return to hiking and my birthday with another of my favorite hikes, Mt. Beacon. Bubbles will likely be involved.

Please read the entire event description, both now and as we get closer. You are responsible to know what is going on. Changes may be posted within the event description or posted in comments below.

Mt. Beacon is a wonderful strenuous local hike with fabulous views from the top(s). We will ooh and aaah from the first 'top', the Casino. We will continue on to the fire tower for a snack break and photo ops. Roughly 5 miles.

No beginners please unless you are prepared and fit. We will dine at Max's in Beacon afterwards to celebrate our victory of The Mountain. :-) Properly prepared dogs welcome.

Bring water, hat, snacks, sunglasses, first aid, tissues, and don't forget your camera. Hiking boots mandatory.

Dogs are welcome.

No Meetup fee. Bad weather may change things. Stay tuned and check back before the event. I will post changes by 7am if need be. Please send me your cell privately if I don't have it, I will return with mine.

ALL HIKES ARE AT YOUR OWN RISK. By signing up for or attending this event, you certify that you have read, understand and agree to the terms and conditions of the Orange County Outdoor Singles Liability Waiver (See "Liability Waiver" under the "Pages" tab above). Happy trails!!!

Dylan Festival at the Warwick Valley Winery!!!

Yeah!!! What better birthday gift than to see the Slambovians??!!! They are playing on Saturday and I hope you can join me. I will find out when they are playing on the 16th. I went a few years ago, it was a great day. The winery is beautiful. Happy day!!!
