Hi Kellie, I'm an outdoors enthusiast who's passionate about hiking! I live in Columbia MD, however, I consider MD-VA-PA my playground. I also backpack and do extended hiking trips each year. Would love to be a part of your group!
We met a few of your fellow hikers at the SugarLoaf Mtn parking lot. I didnt' know about your group, however, it sounds awesome. I'm always looking for someone to go hiking with and have thought about joining a hiking club. So here I am!
I particularly like hiking in the mountains. I'm an experienced hiker so I guess modereate to strenuous. I also enjoy trail maintenance work and actually belong to the PATC to help with maintaining the AT. Also enjoy backpacking and love to hear about others hiking adventures outside the region.
Oh my goodness, Anita, I too awoke feeling slightly off. I had a sore throat and a raging headache, turned off the alarm and went back to sleep. I figured that you had tackled the cold weather like a veteran and had shrugged off the wind. Now I find that we both ended up not going! Hope you feel better; I certainly do after taking it easy today. We'll "meet up" at another hike, undoubtedly. Enjoy the week! Marge
Hey, Anita. I'm not doing the May camping trip -- at least, not yet. I am going to Gunpowder Park next week and then some other hike but I can't remember the name of the park. I'll look into the May trip, though. If you get near to Bethesda/Chevy Chase/DC, give a holler!
