I am an experienced outdoors person, although may be behind competitive outdoorsy types who bike, run, kayak etc. at high speeds.
I have always hiked, back packed, gotten around on crosscountryskis and snowshoes, ridden horses, etc. As well as growing a garden, living off the grid, cooking organically, for over 30 years- dates me, that s for sure. I figure if I join the Appalachiam Mountain Club again, I can do all these things with like minded people.
A native Rhode Islander I live in Portsmouth, RI now, and am an artist and art teacher. I have always been an outdoors person.
