What is your hiking experience ? Would you rate yourself as beginner/intermediate, moderate, experienced? pace is slow, average, or fast? Your hardest hike was....? Have you ever organized or lead a group hike?

I hike about 70 times a year, some short, some long, mostly smaller mountains near So. NH, I'd say moderate. I lead short hikes around my hometown for people I work with.

What is your favorite trail adventure experience and greatest challenge?

Both the same: Hiking The Monadnock-Sunapee Greenway Trail last year with my brother. Day 1-leisurely 13 miles, Day 2 -21 miles because of the threat of rain to reach Washington Shelter, Day 3-19 miles in the POURING rain. Great trip though!

Do you hike all seasons ? What gear do you own and know how to use?

Starting to winter hike, have done some Southern NH mountains Kearsarge South, Crotched, Skatutakee, thumb. Would love to do more winter stuff this year. Have equipment for most seasons and situations, not an expert at using it all by any means.

Do you have a hiking goal, such as reaching all NH 4000ft peaks? NE100 highest?

My younger brother passed away from cancer. In his memory I now yearly hike 1 different mountain for each year he would have been alive, for 2009 the number is 39.

What days of the week do you like to hike ?

Summer-just about any day, Fall to Spring just weeekends. I love early starts.

Introduction

Most of my friends don't understand the idea of climbing a mountain for enjoyment, plus it looks like there are some great trips with this group.
