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

Yes

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

Yes

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

Beer drinking, hiking is just an excuse to drink more beer! The longer the hike or backpacking trip the more beers I can drink.

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, tons. All seasons. Weeklong backpacking trips. Winter is the best for hiking!

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

I would say intermediate. There are very very fast hikers like Jay who don't walk but run.

Introduction

I love the outdoors!!! Truthfully, I just want to join to spy on your guys. Plus, I might join you guys on that trap dike hike. It actually sounds like a killer.
