Please use a picture showing your face. Some event hosts require it, and it is always helps to recognize people.

Yes

Do you understand that these are social events for hikers, and you are responsible for your own safety at all times?

Yes

Which types of events interest you: Short day hikes, long day hikes, weekend camping, backpacking, winter hiking, world travel, rock climbing, canyoneering, mountaineering, etc?

Weekend camping, backpacking, winter hiking especially. I'd love to really get out of the city and find cool spots that are more remote, or as remote as it can be in New York. (And maybe it can get pretty remote-- I have no idea.) I'm interested in day length stuff as well, but my preference would be overnight backpacking trips

Do you have any hiking experience? If yes, where and what kind of trips? Please provide a brief description of length, duration and trail difficulty as this information helps us better plan events suitable for the group.

Yes-- I've gone on a few week length backpacking trips before in Southwest Utah, Arizona, and also in the Appalachian mountains.

Would you say you're a slow, intermediate, or fast hiker?

Intermediate. I'm not really sure though.

Introduction

Just moved to NYC and I'm hoping to learn about some great outdoors activities in my new state as well as meeting some fun people in the process!
