Yes I have read and agree to abide. As the Dude does.
I understand that I am responsible for my own safety always; not just on hikes.
I am interested in all that you mentioned above, not that my schedule permits all, but I am pretty flexible.
Yes, hiked since I was a little guy, as a teen mostly through Harriman. I have worked on hiking trails in Utah, S. Carolina and Kentucky (the last actually laying out and rough cutting through the forest, the other two were more maintenance and construction). Not really done serious backpacking but have some weekend experience. Enjoy winter hikes as well and welcome the opportunity to have more people to do them with.
I suppose intermediate. Have good endurance although a sometimes troubling left knee but I work through it fine. I am quite fit.
I love to be outdoors, kayaking, canoeing, especially hiking. It's nice to see a group like this.
