Yes. I read the About Us and the Rule and Guidelines. I promise to abide. My profile picture shows my face ... though I'm not always that polished :)
Yes. As a responsible, grown woman ... they make perfect sense to me.
I'll start with short day hikes. I have never been camping (again, I'm from Florida. Would you want to sleep outside?), but would be open to it. Backpacking and winter hiking may be things to which I aspire, but I'll need to work to get there.
I've been on short hikes around the country: Finger Lakes, Rocky Mountain NP, Arches NP, etc. I took a long, hot day hike through the hill tribes of Thailand last Feb; and walked Copacabana, Bolivia to Isle of the Sun (ok, where we hired a boat)
I'd say that I'm intermediate with moments of fast / slow depending. Generally intermediate.
My name is Meredith. I grew up in South Florida, and never realized how lovely it could be to be outside until I got the hell outta there :) I've lived in NYC about ten years, with a few years in Chapel Hill, NC for graduate school.
