Don I think you are right - although haven't you moved to the Chaise lounge on the patio instead of the couch??! :)
How about combining the "outdoors" and wine and go to the Sunday concerts at Arbor Crest - not really to active of an event unless you park at the bottom of the hill and hike to the top!
Sounds a bit hard core for my speed! I'm still in training for getting off the couch. I did buy a new Nerdmobike, with a lithium ion battery pack that gets me about 20 miles of range, so now I actually ride my bike. If the ride was longer than 20 miles, I may have to call and have somebody come pick me up with a truck! :)
Not for Donald, perhaps, but for any women wanting to get off the couch -- but not yet ready for "hardcore", another great group is Women on Wheels. You can learn more about monthly meetings, events, casual rides, and a forum, etc., @ http://www.wowcycling.com/
I sent a message to Jeff Johnson who started the Climbing Community to see if he has any ideas. I like the Liberty Lake idea, seems like a nice location that is central for everyone. I think allot of people would be interested in this as a monthy gathering and adventure.
