Do you have any hiking or outdoors experience?

I have been in Scouting all my life. Backpacking, kayaking, camping, caving, we do it all.

Do you have any limitations or health problems?

Terrible car accident that ended my military career in 2009 makes things interesting from time to time but I get by.

Would you be willing to pay a $20 fee for our activities?(ensures folks honor their RSVP's in "iffy"/foul weather - covers volunteer,pro guides travel costs/covers Meetup site fees/any funds left @ years end donated to Appalachian Trail Conservancy)-

Sure, why not

Would you be OK signing a waiver before each trip (saying what is verbally understood in every type of "Meetup" group = you are not a client / you and your guests are responsible for your own safety on the trip & travelling to & from the trip)?

Sure, why not

What's your favorite north georgia trail?

Until I hike them all I cant say. The Cohutta is great but nothing has beat the view from Blood Mountain yet!


Name is Hank but I earned the trail name Vader(that story would no longer be considered a short bio) I am an Eagle Scout, volunteer Scout leader, and prior service military. Married with one youngen. Love love love everything outdoors.
