Do you have any hiking or outdoors experience?

Except for a trip this June to Natural Bridge in Kentucky (hiked up and around the bridge on a mod 6 mile hike), I really haven't been hiking since I was in my early 20s. I have been hiking the Suwanee Creek Greenway at least weekly for the past few months with my dog and an 18 pound day pack to begin getting in shape for "real" trail hiking.

Do you have any limitations or health problems?

No, I am pretty healthy

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)-

Yes, I think that sounds like a fair deal

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)?

Of course

What's your favorite north georgia trail?

I haven't been on any yet!

Introduction

Hi, my name is Rae and I've been hike-less for 20 years... I would like to join a positive group of people who hike because my husband doesn't like hiking and has asked me to please not hike alone. My dream is to thru hike the AT before I'm 50 :o)

What Rachel P. is saying about this Meetup Group

Super nice group of people! I really enjoyed my first outing with them. Sir-packs-alot Bob is full of all kinds of information about the hike, history, foliage, rocks, wildlife, etc, etc!
