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?

"Experienced". Hardest hike= appalachian trail (all of it) I have led hikes but not since the mid 90's.

What is your favorite trail adventure experience and greatest challenge?

Backpacking the 100 mile wilderness with Dad, he got crippling blisters on day 2 and we were up against a food drop deadline that we were obviously not going to meet but we weren't near cell service to communicate that. I ran up an extra 4,000 footer with a cell phone to alter the plan. Dad was impressed.

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

Yes to the all seasons part. I own a lot of gear! I'm not going to list it all; that'd take forever. Was there something specific you were hoping for, here? I have your basic snowshoe/crampon/microspike setup for winter hiking.

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

One foot in front of the other.

What days of the week do you like to hike ?

Sunday through Saturday... but Monday through Friday are best.


I love midweek mountains.
