Hey everyone!! Just moved to Colorado Springs from Big Sky Montana! I'm having a hard time meeting people in the area to hike and climb with. I'd love some company on some of my longer hikes coming up. I've finished two of Colorado's 14ers solo since I moved here. And although I'm comfortable, and content hiking alone I'd like a buddy for some of my longer, and harder hikes coming up!
I appreciate everyone's feedback! I just wanted to put some feels out in the community. I've found myself in several of these groups where members are pretty unresponsive. I'm glad this forum is alive!
You'll find your fair share of flakes here too, but don't let that discourage you. It took me a few years to find a reliable and stoked 13er partner (shout out to the great Whiley!) and both of us still solo plenty, so if you don't find a good partner at first just keep on trying!

the real question people should be asking is why would you move to Colorado from Big Sky?

This is better than a feeding frenzy at a 14ers happy hour! Hilarious.

Lol. So True. I am from Colorado Springs, my dad lives near Monument. But I am on the Western Slope now although often head towards Leadville in the summer especially. Where are the western slope females that like strenuous hikes or skinning!

Funny, coming from the guy who could barely finish a peak on decalibron; hiking w/ out of towners ;). Once again wolves aren’t concerned w/ the opinions of sheep (old sheep at that)

The real wolves I know don't identify as douchebags. Quite the opposite.

Is this the same "wolf" that cried to Bill about someone mocking him and demanded the account be deleted? That makes you a wolf?! Ha!
Is this the same little boy that claims to be a good partner? A douchebag makes a good partner? I don't think so.
Your adolescence shines bright.
Do you have a learning disability?
I mean, what is wrong with you that you continue to takeover threads to deliver your insolence?

But here I am, adding to your shitposts, giving you the attention that you crave, and delivering my own insolence. Shame on me.
