How did you discover Mid-Atlantic Hiking Group (MAHG)?

It was the first meetup on the "meetups in your area" page. Seemed like a great place to start 'cause I already love to hike but haven't had the chance to in a long time.

What are you looking for out of this group? (walks, transition from walking to hiking, easy, moderate, or strenuous hikes, ultra hiking, or trail maintenance work?) Please state all that applies to help us plan activities to meet your needs...

I am currently looking for easy to moderate hikes to join. I haven't been out on a trail since April of this year and don't want to push myself too hard too fast because my left leg has been irritated due to a combination of factors one being the manual transmission I was driving for several years. I love being outdoors but don't know many people in the area and those folks I did know have moved away (ah, DC and it's transient nature...). I am also intrigued by the idea of trail maintenance work because it seems to me that if I'm going to enjoy a trail I would like to contribute to its upkeep, but I am not sure what the work would entail.

Introduction

I moved to DC three years ago for grad school and have finally finished all of my homework! Now that I have more time on my hands I want to get out of my house, move around, breathe fresh air, and meet new people. A good hike makes me smile!
