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, I agree with all the posted Rules and Guidelines.

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

Yes, I understand that the events are designed for seasoned hikers.

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 interest me. Would love to received updates on all of those.

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've been to AK twice. Once to the Kenai Peninsula and the second to the St. Elias Wrangell National Park. During the second trip was a mountaineering course I took with the IWLS. In addition, I travelled to AK in 2006 and hiked up Mount Kilimanjaro. I also backpacked through other parts of that country.

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

It depends on the terrain, but I'd say I'm an intermediate hiker.


I absolutely love the outdoors and am always finding ways to stay active.
