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)


Do you understand that these are social events for experienced hikers, and you are responsible for your own safety at all times?


Which types of events interest you: Short day hikes, long day hikes, weekend camping, backpacking, winter hiking, world travel, rock climbing, canyoneering, mountaineering, etc?

All of the above!

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. I studied abroad in Israel for a semester, during which I went on a number of hiking trips. Most of them involved hiking in the desert for a significant period of time, and in oases for a portion of each trip. I did a two day hiking trip in one of the world's largest erosion craters there (mitzpeh ramon), which was one of the most beautiful experiences of my life. I also attended "nature camp" growing up, and hiked a number of trails of varying length in the Mashomak nature preserve on Shelter Island.

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

Probably slow
