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 getting back into it after a few years of involuntary abstinence (North Dakota is not a good place for hiking). My experience is moderate and includes backpacking and some camping. I haven't done anything awfully challenging, but mostly stuck to moderate terrain.

What is your favorite trail adventure experience and greatest challenge?

The greatest challenge was walking up the Zugspitze (10,000 footer in the Alps). I have to admit that I had to turn back about 1/2 way though. (One has to know their limits). I think my favorite was the Wicklow Way in Ireland.

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

Yes, although obviously not everywhere. I gave up quite a bit of my overnight equipment (tent etc.) when I moved to the city, but I still have quite a few things that come in handy on day hikes.

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

No.

What days of the week do you like to hike ?

This varies greatly, but usually Thursday and Friday are best.
