    Default Senior Hiking/Backpacking Partner(s)

    Looking for Senior Backpacking partner(s). I have been backpacking since I retired, but mostly alone and in a Georgia state park where I felt comfortable and could get help fairly quickly, if necessary. Now I want to branch out some and since Covid is on the decline I want to hike with some fellow seniors and have more fun. Sooooo, calling all Southeastern hikers who would consider joining up once a month or so and doing some overnight backpacking/camping. Can be just one or a group of us (male or female) who enjoy the outdoors and can do a few miles with a pack on your back. We can pick different locations in the SE so there wonít always be a lot of travel. Kind of like home games and road games in sports. This can be done during the week so it is less crowded and one night, two nights or whatever we decide. I just want to see if we can get something going because frankly, I donít know how many more hikes I have left. Trust me when I tell you I am strictly an amateur here. I am not some big mile cruncher you see on YouTube. I am old and slow but I get there. I am just looking to make some new friends and have more fun in the woods. Let me know if there is any interest or if you know of a group like this, point me in that direction. Thank you.

    I'm assuming you live in Georgia. I live in Virginia. I am almost finished with the at in Virginia and I'm planning on going to North Carolina next. I would be interested in a hiking partner for section hiking. I usually can only go out twice a year for about 4 to 5 days.

    You might also try joining a group such as this one https://www.meetup.com/Backpacking-A...s-Take-A-Hike/ in the Atlanta area. If you read some of their posts on past hikes they seem to do some low mile overnights and such. I've never met up with hikers on meetup.com, but have met some tennis players who are now regulars/friends this way. Good way to meet new local friends with common interests. Check to see if there's a Facebook group as well.
