End of the Semester and Gear

Hey All,
We did it.  We made it through another semester of super bomb trips!  We will not be having a meeting tonight because everyone is probably pulling their hair out over finals.  I would like to thank everyone who came to meetings/trips/chatted for an awesome semester of doing it outdoors.

On another note.  If you have any of our gear.  WE NEED IT BACK!  please contact me at cjm151@pitt.edu to get this gear back home.  That means look through your bags and make sure you didn't accidentally snag something from us.  There is NO penalty for having something that you may have forgotten about two years ago.  We just want our beloved gear back.

This is all.  Keep doing it outdoors.

Being outside is cool (minutes)

Hi everybody,
The ohiopyle trip is going out the weekend of 3/7-3/8, we'll get an email out to the people who are going as soon as we figure out where ohiopyle is.  Sorry folks, signups are closed.

Skydiving = Officially Canceled.  too few of TWO signed up. So we cannot run the trip. Sad sad

Seneca rocks and Dolly Sods are the weekend of 3/15-3/16, come chase the easter bunny up rocks or through the woods.  

Dolly Sods is our advanced level backpacking trip, it'll be about 10 miles a day through trees and stuff in West (or Best) Virginia. 

Seneca rocks is a big tall rock thing in West Virginia that we're going to climb up and then go back down and climb up again and its going to be nuts.  It's a more advanced climbing trip so make sure you get up to the Trees climbing wall some time Monday to Thursday from 4-10 o'clock for a workshop to learn how to rappel, lead belay, manage ropes, and deal with trad gear.  It will take about 30 minutes to get a handle on each thing if you are new to these skills.  The Seneca trip isn't confirmed yet but we will let you know when we confirm it.

In the mean time go do something cool outside of a building, peace
jon

Mega Munchy Minutes

Hey Mega Munchers,

Spring is in the air, that means trips.. over roots and rocks.  But really some super cool trips.

Last Weekend,

People from the Pitt Fossil Free Coalition came on by tonight.  It was swell.

We went to the new last weekend, walked the walk, climbed the climb.

This Weekend 3/31-4/2
We are going to the Laurel Highlands to walk with big ol' backpacks on!  Signups are closed for this trip and everyone who is going should know when they are leaving.  

Weekend of 4/7-4/9
We are going to Ohioplye State Park.  (NO! it is not a pile in Ohio, easy mistake though).  This is our big intro trip.  We take 30-50 people.  We will be doing hiking, climbing, and rafting (weather dependent) whether the weather likes us.  If you want to climb we strongly advise that you learn to belay at the Pitt Climbing Wall any time Monday-Thursday 4-10, Friday 1-7, Saturday 1-6. If you have questions aboot white water contact Zach at zta6@pitt.edu.  
Sign up here

Also the weekend of 4/7-4/9  
We will also be A-JUMPING...  FROM PLANES! We will be skydiving folks.  So if you are hype, contact Anna at alg162@pitt.edu.  the cost is $209 (This is a very discounted group rate).  To secure a spot pay a $50 deposit.  You can give this to Anna at 510 WPU before 12 pm on weekdays.  You can give it to Rita at the Pitt Climbing wall Monday or Wednesday 4-7.  Deposits are due by Tuesday 4/4.   

That is All for the outdoor news for now.
