Introduction

Goat

Do you enjoy backpacking or day hiking or both?

Both. I day hike whenever I can, however, enjoy a nice backpacking challenge. Often you will see me carrying a 40 lb pack on my day hikes, just to stay in shape!

What do you enjoy most about backpacking or day hiking?

Being outdoors, away from everything. I am getting into backpacking with my son and daughter a lot more. They are really enjoying being outside, and I am enjoying the time with him.

Where are your favorite areas for hiking in the Dayton area?

Twin Creek, Germantown and Sugarcreek MetroParks, Glen Helen and John Bryan also.

Where are your favorite areas for backpacking or hiking outside of the Dayton area?

Smoky Mountains, TN/NC, Western NC, Appalachian Trail, Red River Gorge, Hocking Hills

How did you hear about Dayton Hikers?

What John Youker is saying about this Meetup Group

Dayton Hikers is a great bunch of folks. I have not met anyone I do not like, and everyone seems to want to go out of their way to help everyone else out. A great bunch of hikers here!

    We could only reserve the shelter for the 7th @ H&D, but we'd be happy to meet you & your family for same thing the following Sunday evening, just absent the larger group(so no need for res.). Just let Susan know tomorrow if you all have any interest for the 14th for just a small group for that same dinner/hike- I have truly enjoyed hiking w/you this winter. Bob

    Hi John, Thanks again for taking the initiative today, & for the potential collaboration w/ our childrens programs & the hiking marathon. Your profile picture is the one that lead me to think of your sons potential for inspiring some of my young people. See you soon to share a few good thoughts & plans. Bob

    Thanks John for the camera information. I liked your pictures and the panoramic shots. Would be nice to take those kind of shots at the Grand Canyon! Happy hiking, Sandy
