On Tuesday mornings, BWAGs meet by the horse sculpture in the parking lot of Museum of the Rockies, 600 W. Kagy Blvd. There are three hiking or skiing groups (one of which brings dogs) and one biking group, and the destinations depend on preferences, weather, time constraints, etc., sometimes arranged ahead of time and sent to each group's email list, and sometimes decided on Tuesday morning in the parking lot. Groups carpool (or bike) to their destinations and enjoy beautiful Big Sky country, exercise, some natural history, and friendships. Drivers are reimbursed for gas and car wear & tear based on the distance driven and road conditions. (Informal rule of thumb: $2-4 for each total hour of driving.)
Summer: Wear hiking boots/biking garb and bring water, lunch, sunscreen, and clothes for inclement weather. (Weather in the mountains can be very unpredictable, and, difficult as it sometimes is to imagine, can become dangerously cold in a very short time.) We leave at 8:00 or 8:30 (unless a special meeting time has been arranged beforehand) and usually return between 3:00 and 6:00 in the afternoon.
Winter: Bring ski equipment, warm clothes (plus emergency clothing), lunch, water, sunscreen. We leave at 9:00 and usually return between 2:00 and 5:00 in the afternoon.
Dues are two "dimes a time" ($10.00/yr).
Newcomers are welcome!
