Where on the Western Slope do you live? how long have you been there? Where did you come here from? How did you learn about the WSA group and why did you join? Do you plan to be an "Active" member or is WSA just one more web registration for you?
I live in Grand Junction and have been here since 2011. I am a "moderately active" member of WSA.
How and about what time in life did you get started with outdoor recreation? What are a few of your favorite outdoor activities?
I've been hiking and backpacking for most of my life.
What is the most challenging hike, bike, backpack, 14er, canyoneering, ski/snowshoe, river trip or other outing you've ever done? How or why was that; and, would you do that or something similar again?
It's hard to single out the most challenging outing. I hope that the hardest and most demanding trip is yet to come.
Where is the most scenic place you have ever slept in a tent, walked or biked on a trail or travelled by paddle or oar down a river?
The most interesting place I've been is Mateena Mountains in the Kurdish province of Dahuk - but that was many years ago.
After you've been on a few events with us, what kind of event might you be willing to to initiate and share with fellow WSA adventurers? Organize a hike? road or mtn bike ride? an evening on the river? a ski or snowshoe on Grand Mesa? Or... ?
I'll be posting weekday hikes during the spring in preparation for a solo backpacking trip on the Colorado Trail in July.
I'm currently retired and enjoy hiking and backpacking during the Summer.

WSA is super cool and double groovy. No really...
