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

Mostly hiking, although I do enjoy paddling (don't have equipment) and geocaching. I'm also very interested in trying some new things.

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

I spent a few years in Colorado as a child and have been a bit obsessive about mountains ever since. I have lived in North Carolina for 7 years and have spent almost no time hiking in the Appalachians, which is depressing to admit. Last summer I went across the country from Seattle down to the Oregon coast and then east to Moab Utah and the Rockies. It was a fantastic trip.

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

I would say my hiking level is intermediate, I haven't done a lot of long distance (over 10 mile) or multi-day trips. I'm hoping to start doing some day hike trips around the Triangle and at some point participating in some trips into the Appalachians. My big hope is for new people and new experiences.

I AGREE

Introduction

I'm an avid solo hiker in the Triangle area looking for new experiences and adding a social aspect to the outdoors.
