No answer yet

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

Hiking, camping, swimming, trips to historical or cultural events, parties in bars.

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. Most of it is recent and with this group. I used to hike a lot when I was younger and a lot of it involves roaming around Europe with a tent (or without) and sleeping in random places, under trees, etc. I also have camped out a lot in my life.

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

Intermediate. I was slow a few momths ago, but I have gained strength.


Driving from Larchmont (Westchester) I like hiking, camping, and swimming. It's fun and reminds me of my days in summer camp when I was a kid. It's much easier to forget about the troubles of life in the citywhen you are in the forest.

What Dan is saying about this Meetup Group

I had an AMAZING time! Suzanne planned the best events. We went to beautiful beaches (where we had the whole beach to ourselves); she took us to see a bioflourescent bay where we swam with glowing microorganisms -- that's someting you don't see every day; she took us on great mountain, rain forest, and dry-forest hikes; we got to explore a huge cave that was filled with cute little black bats; we saw the memorable and bizarre looking Karst country of the North-west. Suzanne carefully researched all of this -- to pack all of these trips into 8 days and to get us an apartment in San Juan that was 3 blocks from the beach and rental cars to see the whole island. GREAT JOB SUZANNE!
