OUTDOORS WITH JESUS
Began the Summer of 1986 as an informal Hiking Club.
This Summer will be our 30th Anniversary.
We're not a singles group, and not an outfitter; but a networks of Wasatch Front hikers.
Adult hiking club open to singles and married couples. 
Children and teens may attend our easier activities if they are supervised.

Focus:  "It's all about Jesus!"
"...In humility consider others as more important than yourselves."  Philippians 2:3 HCB
Please come with the attitude of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, and faithfulness.  

Winter Ratings:  
   NEWBIES - Great for beginners and kid friendly.
We will take time to help beginners to put on snowshoes and understand the sport.
All attending must be patient and be willing to stay with the group.
  MODERATE - These outings are for experienced snow adventurers and not recommended for beginners.  We allow folks to hike at there own pace.   We will go more miles and may climb higher.   If you are slow, please bring a hiking buddy to hike at your own pace.

Snowshoe adventures:  Make sure you bring snowshoes and poles.
Snow hiking:  We'll be hiking in snowboots and poles.

Winter Gear:  It is your responsibility to dress properly for the winter season.
(You may need things not on this list.)   Insulated snow boots are required.
Water, energy snacks, knit hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, wool socks, insulated gloves,
wear wick dry layers, and avoid cottons.   Depending on the temperature you decide how many jackets, shirts, pants, sweaters, and thermos to wear.   In severe weather you may want to wear ear muffs.

Some activities require RSVP:
Please make every effort to be at the meeting place on time.  (Gas up the night before.)
When everyone has signed in we'll leave. (We don't have to wait 15 minutes.)  If you have RSVP and are delayed in traffic, please call for directions in case we leave.  Can someone who hasn't RSVP come?  Yes, if you are prompt to be at the meeting place at the meet time.   (Please don't call at the meet time, saying you're just leaving your house.)

Other activities require NO RSVP: Sometimes we meet for coffee and bagels and want you to show up before our departure time.   (Don't be late, we will leave on time.)
