Group Description

Group of people who like to explore nature but (at least for the moment) do not like to walk more than two miles total per outing (with stops for rest, relaxation, and socializing), and who generally prefer spending time enjoying nature instead of moving quickly through it. Besides leisurely hikes, trips include events such as afternoons by a lake for boating and stuff, hanging out at and exploring beautiful natural spots. Trips are in all parts of the Bay Area. All ages, backgrounds, welcomed.

Any member may post a prospective trip, keeping the group's parameters as mentioned above in mind. The trip should be announced and described, perhaps a week or two in advance. Description should include location, activities, approximate length of total walking to be done (usually one to two miles, not to exceed two) and meeting place (probably the closest Bart station since some members do not drive.) The poster can decide how many confirmed attendees are needed for the trip to be definite and should ask how many members are coming by car (and number of rides they can provide) and how many by public transportation. The confirmations can be accomplished by asking prospective attendees to post their intention to be present at the trip. Members would then indicate such intention, and anyone could see if the trip was on or not, but trip leader should post the result in any case.

Once the trip is definitely on, anyone can decide to join in. Members whose plans change either way are obligated to indicate same via posting. In the case of rain the trip creator should post the morning of the trip to indicate if the trip is cancelled, and may want to give out her/his cell phone number, or work out some other arrangement, so latecomers can contact her/him.

Above guidelines for trip leaders are intended only as suggestions. Please limit all postings to trips or other business related to the club. Spam of any type is not allowed.
