I've just recently discovered http://www.meetup.com/ It's a website full of groups doing things in your area (just search by zip code). One of the groups I found near us is an outdoor group out of Savannah. They had a 'meetup' today - a kayaking trip to Little Tybee Island. It was my first sea kayaking trip & long overdue. (Joe & Levi had a 'man day' out and about - thanks Joe!). It was a really great day - perfect weather. A fun group of folks - 16 of us total. And Little Tybee was beautiful - an island owned by the state & only accessible by boat. Unspoiled. The beach to yourself. And even better - overnight camping is allowed. I imagine I'll be back with Joe & Levi for an overnighter.
