Hi! I've been hiking with this group now for well over a year and thought I would introduce myself. I love to hike, backpack, and ski -- I guess it is a vertical thing.
I found this group by eMail because I put things I was interested in in another profile. This MeetUp site is pretty good with suggestions.
I love all hikes whether they be short after work hikes in the neighborhood or a little more distance like at the AT or SNP. I can hike easy to strenuous hikes but like to keep the pace at 2 to 2.5 mph (otherwise you miss all the stuff!)
Great to meet new people that share some common interests and you get to see some spots around Maryland that you might not stumble upon on your own. Even though they are right in your own backyard.
Hi Jim! Thanks for joining our little group, we just started but it seems there are at least a few people who want to combine hiiking & backpacking with photography. If you haven't already seen our About page, please take a minute and click Pages (above.) How we do things here is a little different, but I hope you'll like it. Welcome!
Jim - I am on the wait list... How can I get on the regular list? Thx
Sorry Jim, I arrived at 10 but I followed coordinates and ended up on the other side of the ridge (Shannondale, WV) on Eagle Nest. I did try to catch up tracing back written directions but by the time I reached 713 it was past 11. Too ad because the meeting point was only 30 miles from fort Detrick, where I am now. Hope you all had a nice hike
Jim - I hiked in November with you on AT... I am signed up for Sunday at se tion hike. Is ther a phone number listed to call you if I am unable to find people at the car pool? I am trying to carpool with someone... Not sure if it will work...
Hi Jim, looking forward to my first hike tonight with your group :)! - Ash
