Date: Region: New England Activity Type: Weekend Trip Place: Rangeley Lakes Region, ME
Looking for guys interested in spending a couple days at a wilderness camp in the Maine North Woods camping, fishing, kayaking, canoeing, skinny dipping, 4 wheeling, exploring, cookouts and beer.>>Read More and View "Who Likes It"
I am with LikingOutdoors. July or August would work best in terms of the weather. Where in the North Woods are you thinking? Moosehead Lake area?
This sounds like this would be as fun trip. Depending upon the date I would attend and all sounds good although I probably would not bring my 4 wheeler. Perhaps July or August would be best weather wise time for such a trip.

Dirt road Mountain biking
Date: Region: New England Activity Type: Mountain Biking Place: Lynn, MA
This trip idea is for you who likes to ride your montain bike in dirt roads and no looking to climb rocky hills and not looking to ride 50miles in one day.
This is an easy ride, pace and distance is up to the group riding together... >>Read More and View "Who Likes It"
Definitely interested, but definitely out-of-shape as well, so that easy pace easy distance aspect sounds good. I wouldn't want to slow others down. If there are places for me to rest out as others continue rocking some sterner stuff, I'd come too. Can't do early May, but otherwise my schedule is open.
I'm interested, Just avoid too strenuous terrain.

What? I was sure I had posted an approximate date for this. I was thinking of starting on a Saturday in the middle or toward the end of June. But July or August would be fine, too, and we should decide on a date on the basis of scheduling availability on the part of interested guys.
PS - The proposed date-of-start is approximate and flexible. Those who are serious about committing to this event will finalize all details in conversation.

Hey, I think it's a great idea. At 50+1 I think that it would be a fun time. I would be willing to challenge my body so would my husband. It's definitely a great idea. What are the dates?
Hi Dr. Bob, Thanks for the invite! This is not a wuss event. It's tempting if only because you're a Doctor and I know you'll accompany me in the ambulance as we race to the nearest hospital :-) Let me make my final arrangements and I'll be right back to you! Please don't be mad...I just couldn't resist haha. Wishing you a really great time and lots of fellow mudders!! Zak

I unfortunately can't make this weekend, but this would be up my alley, as I'm a four-season hiker and would appreciate a warm place to stay sometimes, over a frigid Mahoosuc-style, higher-altitude shelter!
Sounds like fun! Don't mind of there's snow or not, still can enjoy the north country!

My partner and I have been to Winter Rendezvous and had a great time. I'd highly recommend it.
I've never been either, but certainly have heard good things about it over the years. I certainly would like to go with a group = maybe even find some decent lodging group prices. Thanks for getting this idea started - you beat me to it!

One easy and convenient option is to camp out on one of the Boston Harbor Islands. http://www.bostonharborislands.org/campground-reservations They are beautiful, and some are right near the beach. Check it out. Will you be bringing camping gear?
I'm interested in a day trip, but need to know the date to see if I can get off work. I have a canoe to share (kayak too), but we;d need to stay with salt bays/marshes or the larger rivers (i,e, Pemi, Saco) due to the draught. Also interested in a moderate day. Let me know

Mexican Riviera Cycling Cruise
Date: Region: California/Hawaii Activity Type: Road Cycling Place: San Pedro, CA
So my idea is to find a weeklong cruise that typically has 3 ports. At each port we organize a group bike ride in place of the expensive ship excursions. Stop for lunch somewhere and end with Happy Hour somewhere in Mexico and board ba.. >>Read More and View "Who Likes It"
Another easier version... although it doesn't include food or sleeping accomodations, is taking the train up the coast and picking a few California, Oregon, or Washington areas to ride.
I'm totally open to suggestions. My thought was for it to be more leisurely and easy pace. If more experienced riders want to go it can be a faster pace, more distance... just being sure to leave enough time to be sure you don't miss the boat. But slower, more leisurely so you get to enjoy the cities we are visiting could be nice too. Since people might be interested... maybe I'll start looking into dates and prices and stuff.

Kayak paddling class(es) at Natahala out
Date: Region: South Atlantic Activity Type: Kayaking/Canoeing Place: Bryson city, NC
Looking for a couple of guys who want to take a weekend class in whitewater kayaking, advanced beginner or intermediate.
>>Read More and View "Who Likes It"
Hey that sounds awesome! It would be beginner for me cause I've never kayaked?? Have done a fair amount of whitewater canoeing.
Great Idea, I taught both ww kayaking and canoeing up here in New England for many years. Even if you never use those skills on ww, they make flat-water paddling infinitely easier and if you ever get into sea kayaking those old ww skills are indispensable! Without a "high brace" for example, forget being able to launch and land in surf easily and safely and the same goes for learning to control a kayak with your knees. Just wish you were doing this up here because I would certainly help out.

That's terrific. We should do a couple things to get started. 1) We should figure out flights and hammer something down soon before they start to get more expensive; 2) We should reserve a room for the night we arrive; 3) We should reserve bikes & panniers. Once we do that, I can provide more details and can get this posted as an event, and not just an idea. I'll send you a PM with my number.
I like it. I should be saving money but I actually am off work those 4 days. I haven't been riding since my last century ride in the fall... but 30-ish miles in an all flat environment is doable. So I'm interested. Jase, Orange County, CA

Apalachicola River Canoe Trip
Date: Region: South Atlantic Activity Type: Kayaking/Canoeing Place: Apalachicola, FL
Looking for a canoeing buddy or group that would like to canoe down the river this week, preferably Wed or Friday. I went down last year and got some great pictures, and would like to do it again.>>Read More and View "Who Likes It"
I was going to rent a canoe from Apalachicola Maritime Museum. They do a dropoff upstream where you can cut across and go down the St. Marks to the bay. They only offer canoes and sit on top kayaks, which is hard to manage with a dslr (camera and lenses).
Hey bud. I live about 40 min from there. Give me a holler with more details. On vacation this week so might be interested ??
