Hi @SubaruSteve - Welcome to the community! Thank you so much for sharing about the activities you love doing. The story about what your professor taught you in Cuyahoga Valley National Park is incredible and it's great to hear it had such an impact on your life in the outdoors. 

We think this community will be a great place to discuss all of your outdoor interests - to both ask questions and share your own expertise and experiences! If you haven't already, we recommend taking a look at the Ohio board to see what other people are taking about in your area. That will be a great place to see about meeting up with some people on the trails/rivers/rocks near you.

We look forward to the conversations ahead. We're glad you're here!

 

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.
