Welcome new members!

Hi, welcome to the group everyone who is new. Please feel free to post a little bit about yourself, feel free to stay anonymous. I’m hoping to create a community of like-minded people here in San Diego.

I am twenty five, I moved to San Diego for work about five years ago. I found a new church after visiting about 10+. Hoping to find new friends and create a community as it is difficult to find like minded people here. I do junk hauling and swimming pool service as a profession. 

I look forward to talk to and meet the rest of you!

What’s up @GargoyleBear  I’m out here for work as well. Just moved from Illinois about a month and a half ago. Glad to be out of the cold. Hope all is well!

Welcome to California! 

Everything is going pretty well, just glad that my work is considered "essential". Are you in California, or down here in San Diego? Glad you reached out. I look forward to talking with you in the future.

Hello Folks,

    I have been living in SD since 2004. Glad to find a group of bears in San Diego! My wife and I have 4 boys and we live in the La Mesa area. I am currently working from home and loving it, it will be hard to head back to work.

Welcome Jim,

Glad you joined the group, it seems like most people are in the same boat with loving the working from home life. Hopefully everything is going well with you, and in the future i'll look forward to meeting you.

Thanks again,

Hi Bears!

I was born and raised in Oceanside and I've been living in Poway for two years now (there are some great hiking trails here!). I'd love to meet you all! I hope everyone is enjoying the "quarantine" as much as I am.

Hi Bears!

30 year old single male. Born/raised in Del Mar, moved away for education, but back in SD for the past three years for work. Planning the bear trail of my own (Oregon homestead is the goal). Good to find like minded people. 

Looking forward to connecting sometime. Despair/Fear is the real virus these days.

Hey Everyone!

Wanted to know if any bears wanted to meet up in the coming weeks or months? I'm working from home these days during the week, and would be great to build a community of solid people that meet up from time to time to exchange some gravy and kick back on the weekend.

Hey Jacob, welcome. Been awhile since I checked in here. It would be great to get to know the other SD County bears. Put me and my wife down to meetup sometime..

I'd love to meet up! Maybe we could do a bear hike sometime? I'm definitely up for other suggestions too.

That’s a great idea. Maybe a large meet up somewhere between LA and SD?

That'd be a fun idea. Bear Hike, Bear Hangout, Bear's just up for what people can do.

We've got four of us so far, and can see if anyone else hits up this channel for catching up. I'd think a coffee spot would be a great way to start things, with the option to something else after the meetup (if people wanted to).

I'm think a great idea is to start by chatting online. Can setup a Skype or Google Chat for anyone interested.

Just ping me on my email:  Can get it setup in the next few weeks and catch up with like minded people!

Welcome Intrepid Bear and Derek. Glad to see this group growing.

So let's get this bear hike and coffee going, we shouldn't need to worry about any mountain lions with so many bears.

I am @dagoking on insta. Or I can be reached at
