Ok, so there are many posts all over the forums to join your local REI club. I have been to 3 different rei clubs around Dallas based on the clubs in the local clubs page.
Is it just me or does it just seem like sales pitches when you go??? Each time I’ve been to a meeting, it just seems like someone is trying to sell something the whole time. I’ve only met a couple of people at one of the meetings I went to and the other times I went everyone just left afterward. I tried talking to one of the people running the club at one of the meetings, and his response simply was “If you buy my course, you’ll figure out the answer to your questions”. WTF
Honestly it seems like a waste of money at this point. Can anyone recommend any good rei clubs or positive experiences in the Dallas area?
