Hiking, backpacking, camping, cycling, kayaking, geocaching, and photography.
I have went backpacking near Aspen CO (Maroon Belles, Snowmass area) 3 out of the last 4 summers. Taking my older two boys on the last hike. Otherwise, most of my hiking as been in the "wilds" of the Chicago area nature preserves.
I am an intermediate hiker with some backpacking experience. I am hoping to get out even more and enjoy the outdoors with like-minded individuals. Hopefully I will also be able to get my wife outside more. Since I am new to the area, I am also hoping to gain knowledge of the different places to hike and backpack in North Carolina.
I'm new to North Carolina, recently from Chicago. I am looking forward to exploring the variety of terrain and ecology North Carolina has to offer.
