I joined the WRJ meetup group several weeks ago and went to my first meetup at Mt. Major and met 5 others from the New England Hiking Meetup so decided to join. I have climbed 30 of NH 4000 footers in the last 14 months.

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 have finished my 48, 4000 footers. Now I am just hiking for the fun of it. 2 or 3 days during the summer. No I have never led a group hike.

What is your favorite trail adventure experience and greatest challenge?

I enjoyed hiking the 13.6 mile loop around Mt Carrigain, for my last peak. My greatest challenge has been climbing up Huntington's Ravine Trail by myself to prove that I could do it Sept. 6, 2013!

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

I hiked with the over 50 meet-up group this year 2013 most weekends in the winter, and plan to do the same this next winter. I do have crampons and hill sound micro crampons and some winter gear.

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

I have just finished hiking the 48 4000 footers in NH and am now just hiking for fun!

What days of the week do you like to hike ?

I work part time on Tuesdays and Thursdays. I can usually hike any of the other days.

    Hi Kathy, welcome to Old Friends Who've Just Met. I see you attended the group last week while I was away on vacation. I hope you'll sign up for another event soon so we can meet. I'm hosting an event on Thursday to meet for drinks/dinner.
    Now that I'm back and the weather is getting better we'll get more outdoor activities planned. I like to hike too.
