Sunday hikes in the Gorge or Hood area

Post by OregonRainLover » September 19th, 2016, 3:12 pm

I am new to the site, though I have used the info here for a bit. I have one day off...Sundays. I am in my mid 50's, and very fit. I like moderate to difficult hikes in the 3-15 mile range. I hike pretty quick....2-3/hr including uphill. I run my own business in downtown Gresham.

I usually get started between 8-9 am. Look forward to hearing from some of you! Ideal would be 2-3 folks maybe.

Interesting. I was really excited about posting here.....after a year of unsuccessful seeking on CL for hikers. Oh well. Good luck to all of you in your hiking endeavors.

I am sorry nobody replied. I am still pretty new to this forum but the people generally seem more friendly than that. Perhaps your requirements put off some people. Maybe all the Sunday hikers like to go slow?

That is common. Someone proposes hiking and no one responds.

Maybe people are wary of hiking with an anonymous internet person. You never know if someone is an ax murderer.

You have to be persistent. Try different approaches. Try different websites or organizations.

Maybe respond to someone else's request.

I've advertised for partners for a climbing trip or two on here, but I think we all just have our own habits, partners, etc. Given the vagaries of scheduling, pace, favorite hikes, and whatnot, it's probably more likely that you'll have success by going on Meetup or Mazama hikes. That way, you can meet individuals who gel well with you, personality wise, and then plan other trips with them. Best of luck! (I work Sundays.)

ha, ha,..., good one

how do you post a you tube video starting in the middle at a specific point?

or maybe one of those evil clowns that are in the news recently

(maybe best to ignore them, not give them any attention, might just encourage copy cats)

Pause the video, right click in frame, and select "Copy video URL at current time" :)
