Hey, folks! I am an reborn hiker who is out nearly every weekend on day hikes, over nighters, and camping trips. I am looking to meet more folks with similar interests and get involved with some of the trail maintenance activities.
Over the past year, I have brushed up on my old backpacking experiences. I regularly get out for longer hikes, and I am gearing up to completely section hike the AT from 2013-2017.
I believe that I could potentially play a role in leading backpacking trips. I have a gregarious personality, and I love to help other people and act as a mentor/teacher.
Yes, I have never performed any trail maintenance, but I think this is a very important part of helping others enjoy the outdoor experience.
No, I am not, but I intend to be at the next General meeting and submit my membership application.
Michael - So-o-o glad you found us! I feel certain you will find the hiking companions you are looking for in TACT. I'll look forward to meeting you at the Gen. Mtg. next Wed. (9/12), 7 p.m. at the Pretlow Library in Norfolk. You will learn a lot more about the club and upcoming activities.
