What is your experience level with hiking? With backpacking? Rock climbing?

I can walk 8 miles with ease. My knees have a lot of metal in them (ex-firefighter and Navy) so I have a hard time with a lot more than that. In Florida I would do 1 8 mile hike and 40 miles of biking per week. In CA I bike about 100 miles a week put I am not used to the hills (mountains for me!).

Tell us a little about yourself and what you'd like to get out of this group.

Where do you live?

I live in Mountain View, just off of Castro St. Nice area and I like the restaraunts and shops. I work for Amazon in Cupertino. I've climbed Page Mill road on my bicycle and I've hiked Yosemite and Hetch Hetchy

Do you agree that while we maintain strict safety protocols that injuries may occur and all members are personally responsible for their own safety?

Yep. As an ex-EMT/Firefighter/Navy I am terribly familiar with the risks and I am skilled in rescue, rehab, and survival.

Are you interested in leading/helping out with hikes, camping/backpacking trips, or other events?

My name is Peter Doege. I miss all my gay friends in Florida. I've been trying to find awesome people in CA. I'm terribly straight, but not narrow. My brother is gay, moving here, and I want to find good friends for him (and me!).
