Please use a picture showing your face. Some event hosts require it, and it is always helps to recognize people.

Absolutely

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

Of course

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

short day hikes for now, weekend camping - beginner level until I can see where I am. Will be training with a professional guide first.

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 was in the army for a number of years. Canyons in Utah & a few natl parks out west. No rock climbing. up to 5 day treks. some extreme elevations and extended distances while living in southern Peru - mostly the altiplano - Puno, on Lake Titicaca for 18 months. rough terrain & some primitive trails.

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

right now slow. Used to be fast, not sure where I'll be come summer

Introduction

Been a while since I've been challenged by nature, can't wait to tackle it soon!
