Which aspects of mountaineering and backcountry sports are of most interest to you? -- (Hiking) (Backcountry Skiing) (Ice Climbing) (Rock Climbing) (Backpacking & Camping) ?

Hiking, backpacking & camping.

What is your level of mountaineering experience or other backcountry skills? -- (Novice) (Beginner) (Intermediate) (Advanced) (Pro)? (Feel free to add some specifics):

I've done day hikes (<5 miles) and I've camped out for a night or two at a campground, so basically, I'm a complete novice.

What is your greatest achievement in the the mountains as of today?

Day-hiking on the AT in Georgia.

What is you "next" greatest goal? Touch some summit? Backpack a trail?

I'd like to do a week on the AT. My real goal is to get into shape, so I can do these hikes!

What was your most epic, trip that gives you the cold sweats in the middle of the night?

Camping over 4th of July weekend with a three and five year old, in N. Alabama, in 100 degree temps! What misery, but the grand kids loved it...


Hi, I'm Denise, a retired uni professor who recently moved to Maine. I'm loving living in N New England, and looking to make new friends.
