A group of friends in Denver had the same problem. So they did something about it. The result is Gocietya social network for finding trail buddies and ski partners. Bouldering buddies.

Constant just heading out for a desperate backpacking trip together, or a post-work mountain bike ride. In between were stints of being single in which I traveled solo or with friends, and stop-and-start dating episodes not appeal making long-term adventure plans for. Although I recently stumbled into a beneficial relationship. I work for myself accordingly I can operate remotely at trailheads or from the road. Those relationships are stronger for their shared experiences, built on the magic formula of wonder, adrenaline highs, connection to character, and the inevitable troubleshooting and hardships which, admittedly, can just as by a long chalk break a relationship that defines escapade. I admit I often catch for my part thinking: I wish I had a partner like that—my own built-in go buddy to share the experience, advantage with planning, inspire further journeys—basically, assemble the need for companionship in this huge priority of exploring.
