April 4, 2014
I've been hiking, skiing, back packing, rock climbing, and biking since I was a kid. I belonged to the Colorado Mountain Club (CMC) for a few years. I took a wilderness training class and wilderness first aid class with them. I'm also a registered nurse.
I've climbed 19 of Colorado's 14ers without any trouble. I haven't been any higher than that.
I learned about the 10 essentials with the CMC. I'm not sure about how they change other than having the proper clothing for the season and such.
Hiking and x/c skiing
I moved to Bend a year and 1/2 ago from Colorado. I love to explore and exercise in the outdoors. I'm looking forward to meeting people with similar interests.
The group that attended this hike were all nice, interesting people.
