I live in Raleigh around the Lake Lynn area.

What type of THOG events are you interested in participating in? (ie hiking, backpacking, camping, cycling, paddling, skiing, snowshoeing, nature photography, geocaching, etc)?

Hiking, backpacking, camping and nature photography.

Here's your chance to show off! Where are your favorite places to explore? (you don't have to divulge all your secret places!)

Enjoyed hiking the Maroon Bells outside of Aspen.

What is your hiking level? What are your expectations from joining THOG? What do you hope to gain from THOG membership?

I walk about 4 miles everyday but on trails. I am reasonably fit so I feel good about taking on a strenous hike. I hope to learn about the equipment I need to backpack and camp and hopefully do it with the group so I learn what it takes to strike out on my own or with a friend.

Introduction

I am 64 and semiretired and have done some hiking but no backpacking or camping. I think it would fun to do so I am learning what it takes to do so. Found out about the group by attending a class on national parks of the southeast at the Raleigh REI.

What Robert W. is saying about this Meetup Group
