short day hikes, long day hikes, weekend camping, backpacking, winter hiking

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, as stated above I have lived most of my life about a thirty minute drive away from the Great Smokey Mountains of East Tennessee. I suppose I averaged a couple of trips to the mountains each month for about ten years. Mostly these excursions were day-hikes of the intermediate to moderate scale of difficulty, generally between 7-15 miles round trip. I have some experience with backpacking and overnight camping, but not a great deal.

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

I would say intermediate.
