For a number of years PJ and I helped organize the Utah Freehikers. A fun group of male and female freehikers who gathered to hike several times a month when the weather cooperated. Here are photos from a few Hiking Reports from that group (be sure to click on “show all” at the bottom of the photos):
Since then, PJ and I have moved to Southern California, where we would like to start another freehiking group. As we do this, I thought it would be a good idea to create an entity that would encourage others to form groups, and where freehiking plans and reports could be shared, so I started an umbrella Organization called the World Freehikers Federation (WFF).
So, I am announcing the new Southern California Freehikers group, an affiliate of the World Freehikers Federation, and am soliciting members.
The SC Freehikers will start by creating a freehiking schedule for the year, with perhaps two hikes a month – one near our home in the Inland Empire, and one at a more distant, interesting location. As we grow we’ll plan to hike with groups from other areas. A week before each event we will email/remind all group members of the scheduled freehike, including planned location, gathering places for ride sharing, and requirements such as lunch, cover-up, and required gear.
Hike Reports, with photos, will be posted on the World Freehikers Federation egroup to encourage other groups to become/stay active. (Please join this egroup, announce your intention to form a group near you, and begin soliciting members, by going to: www.groups.google.com/group/world-freehikers.)
So, let us know if you’d like to join the Southern California Freehikers by joining The World freehikers Federation and sending us an email, and if you are too far away from us, consider starting your own group: ________________ Freehikers (fill in the blank).
