If you are waitlisted, please be patient until we acquire another member that volunteers to drive some of us. If you have snowshoes, you will NOT need them. If you have something festive to consume at the mid-point in the hike, you are welcome to bring it (apple juice, cider, hot chocolate). I will bring my little JetBoil and some hot chocolate packets. The weather ought to be good.

-------------Things to keep in mind---------------

A) The 10-essentials. You may not need them all but they are sorely missed when absent from your tool bag.

B) Appropriate gear/attire. For example, when hiking on snow and slippery conditions, you should come prepared with spikes/snowshoes/poles/boots. If out kayaking in the sound you might want to consider not wearing highly absorbent clothing such as jeans. While hiking, please leave the cottons off the trails as they often lead to unpleasant skin irritations. If you have questions, please ask.

C) Reimbursement. Please keep in mind that your driver does incur out-of-pocket costs for gas and they should be reimbursed in cash or an agreed upon method of payment at the end of the event.

D) Food and Water. Some outdoor activities will be physically demanding. Proper hydration in such situations is an absolute MUST. Please be prepared and properly hydrated. Likewise, please bring with you enough food to keep your energy level from dipping unexpectedly.

E) Cancellation policy. If you cannot make it to an event, please cancel (change your RSVP to "NO" prior to the event) rather than mark yourself as attending and take someone else's spot on the attending list. Successive no-shows will be added to the waiting list on future events and active members given preference.

F) Event facilitation. I am but a simple outdoor enthusiast. In most cases I will be exploring a new venue for the first time, just like yourselves. Please keep in mind that I am not a guide, nor a professional event coordinator. You and you alone are responsible for your well being and safety.

Disclaimer: Tacoma Active functions to bring people together with a joint interest of exploring the outdoors in a safe and ecologically friendly manner. While safety is paramount, please keep in mind that outdoor activities involve risk. Each attendee is responsible for his/her own safety. By attending this event each participant agrees to release Tacoma Active and its Organizers from ANY responsibility, liability or claim in law or in equity.

How to find us:I drive a 2016 white Toyota Tacoma.
