Atlanta area


Recommended Posts

If we can't make anything else happen, we should at least meet at some point during DragonCon in September!

What part of the metro are you all in? I am north of the perimeter.

Haha! I am in that area, too. We should meet for some fitness fun. Maybe at Leita Thompson park or something. I like to kayak the Chattahoochee, too, though I am not good enough for much whitewater. :)

Still around, just been quiet lately as my fitness goals and life in general have been undergoing a shift. 

 

I'm ITP (barely) in Doraville but do wander all over the place!

Bump. Anyone want to meet this year? Did all of the NFers of Atlanta retire?

I don't know how I've been missing the updates in this thread.... Weird!

 

But hi. Still here.

 

I'm new to the NF community, but I'd love to attend any meetups

 

(Belated) Welcome!

I work near Castleberry Hill and live in the Doraville area, too.

What would you guys be open to doing? We can start simple with a hike or something in the Sandy Springs-ish area (or get more daring and do lasertag or something similar). Thoughts?

You thinking Cochran Shoals?

Cochran Shoals could work. It is a good park for running and such if I am thinking of the right park. Or maybe Morgan Falls, though I am not familiar with the trails and facilities there. I only know there is a playground by the small boat dock. :)

Cochran Shoals is a 5K lollipop "trail" - I ran it and Columns Rd for my Chicago training as the whole thing is fairly flat. 

 

Johnson Ferry is a more technical 2 mile trail loop (well I did it as a loop anyways) which is down Columns Rd from Cochran Shoals. 

 

I'm up for most anything - if folks want to do a longer hike we can sort that out too

So do we want to start with a flat hike or a more adventurous one?

I am not fit enough for trail running yet, but all kinds of hiking work for me. :)

So in general, is a weeknight or weekend day easier for everyone? Maybe a Thursday or Friday evening or sometime On a Sunday? (Not this Sunday)

Aside from Sundays, my schedule is notoriously jam-packed. So, I'm going to keep out of date-setting conversation and just determine if I can make it to whatever time/day you guys settle on.

 

This!  Plan what works best for y'all and I'll see if I can make it.  I'm up for hikes of all sorts :)

Well, I am hoping for a bit more to work with. :)

 

It is looking like I might just pick a couple of dates and times out of thin air and see who is available! I may wait another week or so before doing that, though. Our schedule for summer is not yet set, and the kids get out of school in late May.
