Now, what do you all think?
YES YES YES You nailed it. Affinity groups are a great idea.

Last July and September, we stayed right on the Yellowstone River, about 30 miles north of Yellowstone Park. There's great scenery, plenty of wildlife, white water rafting for those so inclined, miles of roadways and trails for hiking and biking, evenings around a group campfire, and (did I mention) tremendous flyfishing and photography opportunities.

However, there were also many mornings in the fall when we awoke in our Airstream only to look across the river and see another fisher already had his eyes on our favorite pool.

Smile Super idea...where do I sign?

Nice thread and great proposal. Thought we were going to have to move to the northwest to do the fun stuff like they do at rallies! Hmm that's a thought the economy seems to be better there than in dear old Meeshigan....
Just learning about fly fishing, we kayak, hike, mountain bike, are owned by two dogs, photos, boondocking, child friendly stuff makes us happy, rv/digital stuff is cool, and of course we love Airstreams...
P.S. I love the photos!! Makes me want to go back to the mountain streams in the Smokies...

Terrific Idea

The affinity groups and the regional calendars are both fantastic ideas. I'd check in with those often.

We picked up our Airstream in 04' to use when spending weeks / months in Northern NH cycling, kayaking & moose watching. Also, after our hike on the AT it was decided that we wanted to keep hiking, but that we'd like to return to a place that was dry & warm with a bed, shower, toilet, heat, and endless supply of soda. That's when we first started shopping around!

The grouping ideas sound great. When I go north it is normally to boondock, hike, mountain bike, and kayak. Any group get togethers with those themes would be marked up on my calendar fast!

And love the pictures here so far!!!

Is level of expertise going to be a factor here or can learners attend as well as "pros?" Not wanting to be a drag, but wanting to expand our skills.

spring flowers

I'd like to chase the spring flowers around with my camera. I wonder where to go and when.

Two thoughts on the execution of the calendar:

1. When the event is created have there be a choice of event type, WBCCI, Forum, Affinity and depending on the type the color can be different on the main calendar. This would also be the time (at creation of calendar event) that the region that the event will be held in will be defined. These regions will need to be defined, like Shari said the WBCCI regions are a good start.

2. On the bar at the top of the calendar page add to the choices of week/motnh/year to include the various regions so the view can be filtered, or a new pulldown with the choice of views.

This keeps it all on one calendar, but allows for the user to define the region they want to see events for, or they can see what is happening nationwide in one view.

April photography...

I have very tenitive plans to spend a large part of April on the road and photographing.... It looks like the TN area or maybe NM and parts in between. Is there any interest in a photography outing in either of those areas?

I think all levels should be welcome. Personally, when cycling, hiking, or kayaking I like taking the "touring" approach. No hurry, no fixed goal (must go 12 miles or bust), and always room for distractions. If I find a great spot while paddling I'll usually pull in and swim for a while. Same goes for biking & kayaking. It's supposed to be enjoyable after all, not work.

Oh, and who hasn't been a beginner at one point or another??

Gen Disarray, we will be having a mini rally at Fort Mountain in North Georgia April 21-23. If you will be down this way, come join us. There are also great flyfishing areas in Tennessee. The Caney Fork River and Tellico River are two of my favorites. The Caney Fork River has a very nice campground called Long Branch with water and electricity. Reservations can be made at reserveusa.com. The camping at Tellico is boondocking and find a spot when you get there. But you can't beat the scenery and is well worth the trip!
