Hi, i'm Brian interested in meeting new people and hiking with the group since i have limited hiking partners now. I love the outdoors and traveling i have been hiking/backpacking for a long time and love it.
anything from a moderate hike to a serious backcountry multiday backpack but prefer strenuous hikes overall the more challenging the better.
Hell ya dude! Heavy music is the way to go. Metal brings out a primal side in me similar to a nice hike out in nature :) Thanks for the advice on the hikes. I'll keep an eye out for new ones.
Brian, good hiking with you Sunday. Question, what skill level would you say I was based on our hike? Would I be approved for strenuous hikes, something more? We did Mary's Rock. Was a good workout for me but I think I could do more. What do you think? And how do I get "pre-approved"?
I am new & would like to find out how to get preapproved for the Three Ridges Hike on April 6th. I have hiked the Overall Run Falls before as well as the Whiteoak Canyon/Cedar Run Loop/Hawksbill Summit loop. I will be hiking in the area for a week staying at Massanutten Resort. My situation is like Sarita in that I hike regularly but more during the Spring to Fall timeframe.
Hi Brian - the longest hike I've done was 13 miles. However, I hike every weekend during the fall and winter and I am almost always out up and front. I am really looking for a challenge, but I don't want to go against any rules either. This weekend I plan on doing the 12-mile hike on Saturday and Old Rag on Sunday. I've also signed up to do the 18-mile hike in Catoctin. If you're not comfortable ( completely understand since you've never hiked with me), I can wait until Steve leads.
Brian - I would like to sign up for this hike. I know I can do it, especially at a 2.5 pace. What do you think?
Hi Brian! The hike that suggested water shoes is Hazel Mountain--here's what it said: "Skill Level: Very Strenuous - due to steep climb up what we call "Hell's Hill" along White Rocks and unaided stream crossings across the Hazel river so bringing water shoes to cross the streams is a good idea." Do you think I should get some? Thanks! You did a great job leading today. :-)
