Mountains to Sea Trail
Date: 05/28/2018 Region: South Atlantic Activity Type: Hiking/Walk Place: Various, NC
Not sure region above is accurate; the hike(s) I am proposing is in North Carolina.

Did not realize there was a word limit - holler and let's meet and talk.
Sounds wonderful - I have done large sections of the MST from around the Pisgah Inn up to Doughton Park near Sparta - I do not choose to spend the night on the trail so there are a few sections I won't do because trailheads are too far apart to doin a day - I hike weekdays because I prefer to go naked :). But I'm glad to keep the kilt on and explore new sections south of Pisgah or around Grandfather or above Linville - I have done all the sections I can do naked from Black Mountain Campground so

Hiking or Kayaking in Cuba
Date: 03/27/2019 Region: International Activity Type: Hiking/Walk Place: Havana, - CU
Would there be any interest in doing a GayOutdoors trip to Cuba? It is my understanding that the outfitter, Cuba Unbound, which was recently profiled in Outdoor Magazine and in the New York Times, can arrange for "customized" and/o.. >>Read More and View "Who Likes It"
Ah yes Clarence, I was thinking that summer would be too hot, and rainy, for hiking in the mountains, but you are a Floridian, so you might not mind it as much...
Now, why would you not recommend doing this trip in the summer? As an educator, it would be far, FAR easier to make this escape during the summer when I’m not employed.

Taconic Crest Trail Traverse

Spring has finally arrived! I spend a great deal of time in the white mountains but given the large quantities of snow still to melt it's time to shift gears. I would like to do a day long traverse of the Taconic Crest Trail in the.. >>Read More and View "Who Likes It"
This sounds great, I'd love to do it with the caveat that I'm coming from NYC and don't have a car. If we can figure out a bus or train pickup spot I'm in.
I'm interested too. I'll definitely be hiking somewhere this weekend and I've never been out that way before. It will be a nice change from the White Mountains and probably good practice for my upcoming hike of the CT section of the AT. Keep me posted too. - Dan

Florida Trail Weekend Hike
Date: 05/26/2018 Region: South Atlantic Activity Type: Hiking/Walk Place: Orlando, FL
Just seeing if anyone is interested in a "Florida Trail" hike sometime. I live in Orlando, so I'm interested in the trails anywhere in the Central Florida region. Nothing crazy: a day hike. Open to different fitness levels. Thanks! Brandon >>Read More and View "Who Likes It"
For spring break a year ago last March, I did several of the trails in the Arbuckle Wildlife Management Area along Arbuckle Lake. I did it as a multi-night camping trip. But they can certainly be done individually as day hikes. All but one trail was very well managed; not wanting to do trailblazing and bushwhacking, I avoided that one section.
Good afternoon Gentlemen, I am actually planning four hikes on the Florida Trail to the west of Melbourne. Two hikes in the Three Lakes Wildlife Management Area between US 441 and SR 60. One is about 9.4 miles and the other is about 15 miles. Two other hikes (maybe one) in the Bull Creek Wildlife Management Area between US 192 and US 441.There is 20 miles of trail in the Bull Crrek area (still looking for a forest road to cut the hike in half). I would like to do all of them as day hikes

Squaw (Alpine Meadows) Spring skiing

til closing, Memorial Day. Squaw or Mammoth. Ski or Ride.
Didn't really get much interest last year either. Doesn't seem to be much activity in northern California in general as well. I've got my theories .... Squaw has more than enough snow on the upper mountain to conduct operations thru Memorial Weekend. BTW, I both ski & ride. Alpine & Squaw are my home mountains where I teach. Mammoth is open til Memorial weekend, too so I'm also open to that option.

Date: Region: DC Region Activity Type: Camping Place: Washington, DC
Is anyone down to plan a camping trip with me? I'm thinking there are a lot of guys in D.C. (and surrounding counties) who would like an overnight camp and hike. thoughts?
BTW I see mention of Mathews Arm CG. It doesn't open 'til May 2 this year. But we wouldn't really need to stay in a campground, or car camp, would we?
I live part time in Luray, just west of SNP, and have backpacked extensively there. I could be of assistance planning an itinerary, and if it's one of the weeks I'm going to be there would definitely want to go myself. I typically do backcountry camping, not frontcountry such as commercial campgrounds, but let's see what others are into. As of now, I'm free every other weekend starting last weekend in April. Just need a couple weeks notice so I can make plans for my dog - he is not a backpacker.

Thanks for all the feedback! This is still in the very early stages before we make any final plans but it sounds like everyone would like to share a cottage rental.

Hi Shawn, great idea for a backpack, I could do in February, but March I can't. Great idea though. I'm going to 'like' it! And thank you for the idea. Pete
Hey, Zak, I hadn't noticed that it didn't post the date I entered...this site seems to have some quirks with mobile phone access. Anyway, I'm leaving on the 23rd of March. My return date is open-ended, as long as I show up for work on April 2nd. As far as length, it's limited by the small number of access points to the canyon, and the need to keep advancing to the next available water source.

Anyone know of any cool waterfall hikes in socal??>>Read More and View "Who Likes It"
The santa cruz trail also has some great views and also river camping with day hikes for people that don't want to go to the backcountry. In the SB front country there is also the seven falls trail, folks can branch off to do cathedral peak (bring a rope for the top for those who aren't mountain goats) and there can be swimming holes. Would need to be in spring though for either of those to have waterfalls. Was just back in Manzana last weekend and the creeks are bone dry.
There are also smaller falls up the Santa Cruz Trail near the Santa Inez River just north of Santa Barbara off Hwy. 154 (Oso Creek through Upper Oso Campground). In Southern California, the waterfalls flow more in the late winter and early spring in conjunction with rainy season. I'm all in.

I live in southern NH and would definitely be interested - date and length dependent. If less than 25 miles, that would be great. Lots of commitments and tentative plans coming up so date would definitely play a factor. Look forward to hearing more!!!!
I'd be interested too, if my school schedule allowed me to get away. Ideally, this kind of trip would suit me better in the summer, but that might be an incentive to do it again - and maybe make it an annual event.

I live on the Maine coast but have a vacation home in Andover, Vermont which is right next door to Weston. I'm not sure of gay places, except as Mike mentioned down at Rock River. But generally speaking almost everyone is gay friendly in the area. I have hiked a few of the mountains in that area, but have lots more to explore. Have fun, great area to visit!
Hi, Not sure how far you'll be from Brattleboro, but there's a gay swimming hole at Rock River that's clothing optional. Check it out if you have time and are within close proximity. Mike

Total solar eclipse

Anyone interested in viewing the total eclipse occurring in Oregon?
>>Read More and View "Who Likes It"
Eclipse is early Monday the 21st....I've been told it would be best to get settled there at least a day or two before because of the difficulty of finding a place to set up and the possibility of major traffic jams.
Great idea....and I have attempted to plan it with various friends for months. Reality is it is in a week....and flights into the area are booked solid and campgrounds are full. If you have a place secured in the path of totality, and one that is in the dry part of Oregon or Idaho or Wyoming, I would be interested.
