So I'm a uni student who went to a shitty state uni (university of Vermont) because I thought it would have a great outdoors program and I could do my favorite activity in the world, backpacking, every weekend.
Well It more seems people here are just interested in smoking weed and watching Netflix so I'm unable to find anyone to go backpacking with. They have an outing club but it requires exouberant sums to go on the trips.
What's the best way to get out and go as much as I can if I can't find people here? Is there backpacking groups or should I just go on solo trips? I have all the gear but not a car as I'm only a freshman.
Does anyone know of any good weekend trips around the Burlington area?
Smoking weed and watching netflix is pretty great, anon.
But keep working on finding more clubs, or try to form your own. A lot of universities will let you form your own club if you can demonstrate a need, and some of them even give you some seed money as well.
Or you can form a group on meetup.com, although if you don't have a car that kind of makes that hard.
Worst case scenario smoke weed and watch netflix, and then work a job over the summer so you can afford some of those trips next year.
Are you on crack OP?
Bershires, Eastern upper NY, Monadnock (sp), Green Mtns, White Mtns, Kanc, Rangely Maine area, Baxter (pushing it for a weekend)
and those are top of head without thought.

This. Say it's for the gays and minorities or whatever and they'll just throw a bunch of money at you.
OP, there are hundreds of people around you who do the things that you do. If you're not a tool, they would do them with you.
you just have to find them. Craigslist? Ultimate frisbee? Contra dances? Flyers at teh co-op? It can't be that hard.
I just went to craigslist and found this:
Hook up with some of that ginger. Mabybe she's got a rocking buddy under that hot grin.
I used to live in Burlington, I was a conservation crew leader for the VYCC in Richmond. Just go to OGE and pick up a flier or take a class. I really feel like these opportunities should be hitting you in the face.
