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 am a very experienced hiker with 28 years of backpacking and hiking experience. The hardest hike I ever did was the Mahoosuc notch and the Mahoosuc Arm. It was a pretty rugged trip, but also one of the most rewarding.

What is your favorite trail adventure experience and greatest challenge?

My greatest trail adventure was hiking the Pemigewesset Wilderness in NH for 5 days alone. It was my first solo hike. I would say it was also my greatest challenge because I never did an overnight by myself, although I've hiked alone many times. It was a wonderful experience and not at all scary, as I thought it would be. I stealth camped the whole way and totally enjoyed the solitude. I met many wonderful people along the way.

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

I hike all seasons and have gear for all weather conditions. The only thing I don't own is an ice pick and crampons, I use Microspikes.

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

I have done the NH 4000'. I never set out to hike with a goal of bagging peaks, it just happened after so many years of hiking.

What days of the week do you like to hike ?

I hike mostly weekends, but during the summer I like taking week long trips.

Introduction

Hi, I am an avid hiker and have hiked extensively throughout NH and ME. I am the organizer of the Meetup, Hiking Adventures for women an I'm always looking for opportunities to meet other people who share my passion for the outdoors.
