Please tell us a bit about your level of hiking experience. Are you capable of walking five or more miles at a moderate pace without assistance?

Been hiking seriously nearly 60 years including chunks of the AT, FT, Sierra Crest, Wonderland (Mt Rainier,) Cascades and Olympics. Slowing down some lately, but still looking forward to getting out when I can.

Do you understand that our group's purpose is to organize hiking events & promote hiking, and it is not a social networking or dating group?

Been there, done that, but there is always more to learn. Looking forward to it.

Are you willing to RSVP? The group leader needs to know if you are coming or not.

Sure, not a problem.


Hiking and the outdoors have been life-long passions for me. I'm a retired career naval officer, math teacher, corp. exec. Married with 3 grown children and 5 grand kids. Looking forward to working with others to improve Florida's trails.
