Mostly hiking, although I do enjoy paddling (don't have equipment) and geocaching. I'm also very interested in trying some new things.
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.
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'm an avid solo hiker in the Triangle area looking for new experiences and adding a social aspect to the outdoors.
