hiking, backpacking, camping, paddling, skiing. I would like to gain more experience kayaking and backpacking. I am recently into fly fishing (release always). Would like to get back into cycling.
NC & Va mountains and streams. Recently visited New River Gorge and Gauley River in WVa - wonderful! Also recently discovered Lower Haw for local hiking and fly fishing.
Probably a moderate hiker. I want to explore other parts of NC, Va, and WVa and learn more from others who are more experienced. I hike and camp some on my own, but would prefer being part of a group either large or small particularly visiting places I know little about. I would like to gain more experience paddling - particularly kayaking where I have very limited experience and knowledge. Last, I want to be connected with a group of people who value, protect and partake in Nature.
I have hiked, camped, fished and canoed some over the past 20 years but work has slowly eaten into my outdoor opportunities. I am now interested in finding more outdoor opportunities in the local area and in the NC, Va, and WVa mountains.
