Membership is pretty open. However if we are not familiar with you. we may communicate with you about your outdoor experience before you go on one of our outings. We have a fair number of guests and they frequently become members. If you are a member and want to bring a guest, let us know and vouch for their abilities. The only hassle is that they may get bumped if enough members sign on. That rarely happens. Well behaved dogs are welcome by default as long as there is room but let us know if you want to bring your dog. If they are not allowed it will say so in the trip description.
Note: if you are a full member of SWEL Meetup, you can go on co-listed trips with that organization. They are located here:
Register for membership. You can use any name(s) you want but it helps us if we can identify you. If we can’t, you may be asked to provide more information before your first outing.
Check your email. You will receive an approval notice. Click it to activate your membership. You can now login. You can remove your membership at any time. It’s good to let us know at the same time so that we can remove you from the email list. If you don’t receive the activation email. Check your SPAM folder.
