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!

I live in Garner -- not out in the sticks but intown close to Hwy 70.

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

I enjoy backpacking, camping, hiking, walking, running(some), yoga, canoeing, tubing, swimming, skiing, snokeling, and sailing. This looks like a fun, laid-back group.

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

My favorite places to explore are places I haven't been yet. Places I go regularly (or have been to multiple times) include: Mount Rodgers, VA; Carolina Beach, NC; and Phisgah National Forest, NC. Wonderful places I have been to and would go again in a heartbeat include: Grand Canyon (backpacking); San Francisco & Muir Woods, CA (hiking); Mount Ranier, WA (hiking); Jackson, WI (skiing); New River, NC (tubing);

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

I usually don't seek out the most challenging hike I can find, but don't shy away from a challenging adventure either. I have no physical limitations and I work at staying in pretty good shape. My expectations are just to have a group to go do things with rather than going alone. I hope to meet some people I can call friends and have a safe group to camp, hike, and backpack with.

By joining THOG, you agree that you have read, understood and abide by our Member Code of Conduct and Trip Participation Waiver. You agree that participating in our activities is voluntary and you are solely responsible for yourself and your guests

I agree, and maybe we can organize a trip to the Coyote Buttes!


I'm interested in rediscovering things I used to do on a regular basis. For instance I took my youngest backpacking last Feb. It reminded me how much I miss those activities. I want to do them with other adults and at my pace rather than hers.

What Tina C is saying about this Meetup Group

It was a great trip and John was a perfect coordinator -- thanks John yes, John was the epitome of coordinators...
