How would you describe your camping skills? Beginner Intermediate or Pro?

I'd say intermediate, though most of my friends would say pro and Bear Grylls would say childlike.

What is more important, getting there (achieving a certain hike time or mileage) or savoring the journey (looking at small details,taking photos, etc.)?

I'd say enjoying the journey to a place worth getting there....

Are you most interested in hiking, camping, backpacking, or paddling?

All of the above, but have the most experience in hiking and camping.

If you are interested in paddling, do you have your own boat or would you need a rental or loaner?

Rental or a loaner would be great, but have access to one if need be.

Do you have an outdoor skill you would be interested in helping others with? If so, what is it? (yes, things like knot tying or camp cooking count!)

Hmmm.... am pretty good at knot tying....


I went thru my Eagle Scout phase, then my endurance athletics phase, and now I'd just like to enjoy the outdoors!
