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 rate myself as an intermediate hiker who travels at a moderate pace (slower than AMC booktime). Some of my hikes in recent years have included the NH Tripyramids, Mt Crawford, and Camel's Hump in VT. I often hike solo. I have not yet organized or led a group hike.

What is your favorite trail adventure experience and greatest challenge?

The dense woods suddenly opened to a view of a distant mountain pass across the valley far below. I watched gray clouds pass swiftly through the pass straight towards us until we were enveloped with a foggy mist. Beautiful visual memory! The greatest challenge I recall was when my hiking partner fell over a cascade and I had to get down to him quickly over a treacherously slippery trail and rocks.

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

I usually hike in Fall and Summer. I'd like to try some Spring hiking and also am hoping to venture out on winter trails this year. I own a tent, backpack, hiking poles, crampons, headlamp, sleeping bag & mat. Although I do not own them, I know how to use a water filter pump, a portable camp-stove, and snowshoes.

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

My goal is to enjoy the journey while hiking.

What days of the week do you like to hike ?

Any day is a great day to hike!! However, I am generally not free to hike on Saturdays.

Introduction

I enjoy hiking and am looking forward to joining and rejoining other members on the trails in the White Mountains and elsewhere. My home is in Maine.
