Have you read the About Us page, and do you agree to abide by the Rules and Guidelines posted on there? (Note the part about your picture showing your face - I will decline your membership if it doesn't)

Yes.

Do you understand that these are social events for experienced 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?

Day hikes, both short and long interest me -- I don't want to say the others don't appeal to me, but they usually aren't practical given my schedule.

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.

I have been a sporadic hiker all my life-- but usually day hikes, and nothing ambitious. In the past year the longest hike sI've gone on were a day hike in beacon, and another along the appalachian trail -- both about 10 miles.

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

Definitely not fast. I'd say intermediate leaning to slow.

Introduction

I live overseas most of the year, but am in NY about 3-4 times a year for a few weeks at a time -- if I have the time for a hike during a visit I'd like to be able to join you.
