On again and off again hiker, biker. I miss the vistas I used to see hiking in Marin County, California. Just got a new digital camera, so I'm interested in testing it on the outdoors. I've also snorkeled a bit. Rock climbing? I'm game to learn.

If you have a Facebook account, be sure to "like" our Facebook page! First, please tell us where you live? (do not post specific addresses! Give us a general idea, as it helps for potential carpool purposes!

South Durham, near the end of 147. Easy access to Southpoint, Brier Creek, downtown Durham.

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

Trail hiking, mtn biking, skiing? (want to learn), photography, sunset watch, boulevardier (sidewalk cafe slack).

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

Eno River State Park has some of the coolest trails I've found here. Been aking my bike to Lake Crabtree lately.

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

I used to be a very proficient "fast and light" trail semi-jogger, but have fallen out of shape. Easing back into it, and just bought a new mtn. bike (used to ride 1990-99), so I'm on the lookout for good trails for "beginners."

    Hi David,

    Here's my formula so far for battling the mid-life crisis:
    1) Trade in minivan for 9-3 Convertible
    2) Lose the "mom" jeans...per my kids ;-)
    3) Say "YES" to fun!
    I'm always open to new suggestions. Looking forward to the superbowl party tonight.
