Not long ago, I had someone e-mail me about finding groups locally who liked to hike. I think I gave him some information, but now there’s some more. A new group, called the Oklahoma Outdoor Network, was recently formed and has a website up and running.
From the look of it, it appears to mirror social network Internet sites. You can sign up on the site to be a member, and the site includes a calendar of events for all kinds of activities. It also breaks down groups into areas of interest, such as hiking, camping, trail maintenance, kayaking, fishing, and more. It also has the beginnings of an active online forum.
At first glance, this looks like a very useful site for people looking to engage with others in various outdoor recreation activities. I’ve already bookmarked it and will likely sign up.
You can check out the group’s website here: http://oklahomaoutdoornetwork.net/
From past experience with 14ers.com, this site will develop and grow if users contribute and administrators keep it navigable. It sure has that feel right now. So there you go, a social networking site for outdoorsy people!
