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?

To start I'm interested in short hikes and perhaps all day ones, but eventually I might be interested in much longer ones up to and including traveling.

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 did a 12 mile hike in the Pennsylvania mountains a couple of years ago, other than that it's been mostly running, a little trail running, and the odd 5 or 10K race.

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

Intermediate to fast.

Introduction

Hi. I live in NYC and am looking for more group outdoor activities to participate in. I'm an author as well as a book editor so I spend enough time by myself :) I'm a casual runner (around 10 - 15 miles a week) and looking to try more hiking.

What Chris is saying about this Meetup Group

Nice, friendly, fun.
