For the Northern NV – Reno/Sparks/Carson area HTF crew:  We are starting a local/regional chapter of American Pioneer Corps (APC).  For details on what APC is (and isn’t), please visit https://www.americanpioneercorps.org/ .  APC chapters are referred to as “Battle Buddy” groups and as such, our provisional chapter will be the Sierra Nevada Battle Buddies.

Our focus at the start is to plan a few small hikes/events that are easy to join and attend while meeting some of the initial requirements found at the APC site.  The overall goal is to improve our individual and group fitness and capabilities in outdoor disciplines.  We have an incredible resource in the expanses of mountains and desert right in our backyard, so let’s get after it and make ourselves better in the process.

If you are interested in participating or would like more details, please email apc.sierranevada at protonmail.com .

Our first tentative event will be a short, easy 3.7 mile hike planned for Sunday, 2/21.  Look for a new post in the NV HTF for specific details.  I look forward to seeing some new (and familiar) faces at future APC events with Sierra Nevada BB.  For more APC info on Arfcom, look for the American Pioneer Corps HTF link at the top of the main Hometown Forum page (there are also a bunch of APC related topics in GD right now as well).

I believe JohnStoner is the contact for Southern NV BB.  I can't find the old posts since the site move and archive disappearing but I know that there have been hikes down south in the past.

First hike details have been posted in a separate thread here in NV HTF.

Whether or not American Pioneer Corps (APC) interests you or not, feel free to join us on the 21st for an easy hike if you have the time.
