Yesterday I'd written about having a hard time meeting people with common interests - primarily athletic or outdoor related activities. I doubt I'm the only one.
Paul mentioned that I might be able to find people via craigslist - so I gave it a whirl. Instead I came across 2 websites that act as a forum to link people with similar interests. One was purely paddle/kayak related, but the other was for a number of activities. This website is Activity8.com
I figured it was worth a shot so I registered. Let's see what happens... I'm hoping to link up with people who are interested in white water kayaking and this coming winter, I'm sure I'll be looking for additional snowboard buddies.
I'm still trying to avoid facebook - though it did allow me to reconnect with people from the past who had similar interest, it also reconnected me with bad habits, bad company, and a huge distraction.
wish me luck!
