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?

Highly experienced hiker/backpacker, have WFA, was a backcountry ranger in Alaska for one season, have lead trips for the AMC since 1989, have hiked all 48 NH 4000 footers, did a solo winter traverse of the Presidential range, much more.

What is your favorite trail adventure experience and greatest challenge?

My favorite trail ever was in Alaska, we stayed overnight one night in an old trapper's cabin. The remoteness and wildness of it was incredible. No peaks involved on that one.

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

All seasons, have everything and then some.

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

NH Winter 4000 footers and the 4000 footers in Maine that I need to complete the NE 4000 footers.

What days of the week do you like to hike ?

I can only get out on the weekends

Introduction

I'm a 4 season hiking/backpacking leader for the AMC, have done all the NH 4000 footers, now working on getting them all in the winter and on getting them all in the non-winter months.
