Great call Bradford on starting this FB group.

Fairly new to the SE and actively backpacking weekends, be great to meet others down this way who know the lay of the land.

Count me in. I go out at least once a month throughout the entire year.

First off, thanks for signing up everyone. I have a question though, do you have the option to post events (trips) or do I have to do that? I want to make sure that everyone can post trips, pics, etc? Does it give you that option? It's on the left side under the picture on my screen.

For the non-facebook users, if there is enough interest, we could always start a meetup group. Meetup has some good features but it isn't free and I hate for anyone to have to pay anything to be a part of the group. Another option would be Yahoo Groups.

Since a meetup group does cost money you could have everyone pay a fee to join it. By doing this it becomes a private meetup group.

A Yahoo group would also work and might even be the best way to go esp for folks (like myself) who haven't given into the pressure to join Facebook

I'm interested on 12/28/2009 09:11:04 MST Print View

I'd love to get involved but I'm not a wife is and I could use her acct. if needed.

I don't have many hiking partners...especially who carry less than I'd love to get together with some like-minded folks in the area...and there are so many nice spots around here within just a short drive. Firescald Knob, Max Patch, Linville Gorge, Big South Fork, Roan, Mt. Rogers, etc. Good stuff.

I am going to go ahead and join up as well. I am new to backpacking and UL so I may have to pick and choose when I can meet up with you guys. I might not be light/experienced enough for some of your longer hikes, but regardless, good to know there are some fellow SE backpackers.

SEBLG: Facebook Question on 12/28/2009 12:36:05 MST Print View

OK, I need some help with Facebook so I can communicate w/you guys easily.

I actually joined Facebook awhile back, and upon the deluge of unwanted posts from "friends of friends" I quit. I didn't know (but my wife has since informed me) I could have set up filters,etc to only get posts from my specified friends. :)

So I'm gonna sign up again, but this time under a fake name so I can only stay in contact w/you guys, and not offend all the people who I "reject" as online friends. I'm not anti-social, I just wanna limit my computer time - they already have my email and phone#, so if they need me they can certainly reach me.

Do I need to do anything special when I set up this fake name so that you guys know me, or will it not matter once I go to the SEBPLG site and sign up?

I am by no means a facebook expert so some people might be able to tell you more, my only suggestion is to use "Todd" as your first name so at least we can get that part right. I have hiked with a guy from another forum a few times who went by "backpacker bryan" online, but neither his first or last names was Bryan but people assumed Bryan was his name anyways.

Just saw your first hike, wow, I am inspired. That one trip is equivalent to like my last 4 trips in mileage. Hopefully, when I get some lighter gear and more experience I will be joining you.

No problem, thanks for signing up. Hopefully we will get some better backpacking weather here before too long.
