    Nice new picture! I might be inspired to change mine if I can remember how...?

    Oh and PS: thanks for the tip about the meet ups! There are tons! Several look like things I might really like. I'm gonna try and be brave and go do a walk/hike up one of the canyons where a group goes on Friday nights.

    Thanks, Tomi. Feels good not to have to think about it for another year.

    Aha! You evidently did. Now we have a pic of you instead of the dog.

    That sounds like fun. It is easier to get out, especially being female and not significantly othered, if you have a group to go with. Safety in numbers.

    This evening I went with an urban hiking group that meets right in my downtown neighborhood. We did a good 7 or so mile walk at a brisk pace around the central park and back. The Wolf Cub had a grand time. I met a really nice lady about my age who lives just a few blocks from me. She said she would love to go out dancing more but not as a single female so we talked about tearing up the town some evenings.

    ETA : I just worked the route out on the sparkpeople map app and it was more like 8.5 miles. That was a goodly hike.

    I want to thank you for the meetup.com rec too - who knew there were so many interesting groups in my locale! Now the trouble is choosing...

    In regards to meet up groups, make sure the one you pick has stuff to do when you are available or that they are a very active group and plan stuff in your area. I belong to several. I only do stuff with one as the others are either inactive or plan stuff far away or at times I can't go. This seems obvious, but I never thought about it as I joined all these groups. Most have a small fee as they have to pay meet up.com for the site, but they should also let you hang out with them a bit before insisting that you pay.

    I really like your new pic, PB. It is my favorite of the ones you have had since I came aboard. I really like nice smiles.

    Now all I have to do is get with computer-geek hubby and figure out how to put up an avatar of my own. But it won't be a pic, tho - still guarding my anonymity mostly.

    Thanks, Sigi. I am a bit overwhelmed with all the possibilities too. I could have more stuff to do than there are hours in the day if I wanted to.

    Right, One hiking group looked interesting but their stuff is all up toward the north end of SD county. I haven't found any that ask for money up front. Some ask for money for a specific event which is understandable.

    Thank you. It's in the "forum actions" tab. Then "general settings".

    So, yesterday I had a totally MDA free day and it was delightful. I went for a Loooooog hike with yet another meet up group.

    This evening I a coffee shop and walk first date with someone I met on the eharmony site. He seems really nice but he may be a tad too Type A for me (comments about getting up at 6:30 and having back to back meeting scheduled all day, then piano lessons, then a workout, then seeing me) hmmmm. We'll see.
