What is your experience with the NH 4000-footers: How many have you hiked, which have been your favorites, what were your biggest challenges?

I grew up in New Hampshire and hiked many of the whites as a kid, but have been living in Los Angles for many years, so my more recent hikes were all out in the desert. I am an experienced hiker. Have hiked Washington many times, along with other higher mountains.

What are your hiking goals?

I go hiking so that I can get out of the city and into nature. I prefer longer fairly strenuous hikes but I am not one of those people that gets upset if the rest of the group is too slow. If I feel refreshed and my legs are tired at the end of the hike I feel satisfied.

Do you hike all seasons?

yes. I have all the gear for winter mountaineering, but I'm not sure I like being above treeline in 15 degree weather. I say that now, but next winter I'm sure I will do a few hikes like that.

What hikes would you like to see posted?

I enjoy hikes that are 12 miles - 17 miles.

Are you interested in leading your own hikes or events?

no thank you
