Karlos is my nom de plume, as I have to fly below the radar. Long story about that, which I can explain in person.

What is your favorite thing to do in the outdoors? (keep it rated PG, your mother might read this)

Kayaking or anything else on the water. If you can work some other activities in, all the better. Hey mom, miss you.

Where are you from? (if you've lived lots of places, list them)

Turtle Creek, upstream from here. Home of the Vogues. Genl Braddock was mortally wounded after crossing the river from Turtle Creek during the French and Indian War. George Westinghouse built a huge industrial complex here. I have also lived near Philadelphia, Atlanta, Cleveland and now here.

What do you do for a living?

I have spent my whole professional career working in the insurance industry.

What is your favorite place to hike in the Cincinnati / Tri-State area?

The trails out near Caesar Creek

What is your craziest hiking memory (or "have you ever been chased by a bear")

Hiking the Appalachian Trail as a kid and running into a rattle snake in the middle of the trail. Oh, and it is so much more fun to chase the bear.

    Hi Karlos, I forget what the deck issue was.. . so refresh my memory, and I will respond. However I'm not sure I can adhere to the very strict policies around footwear. I am just a barefoot kind of girl. It's not at all that I flaunt authority either!

    I had a wonderful time last night. You guys were great. I really look forward to more outings with your group.

    Hey Karlos, I remembered after I saw the park that I was there before. Last year with your or Henry's meetup. So I guess I have to go to Winton to see if I was there. It is hell getting old and forgetful!! :)

    Thanks, Karlos. And I really appreciate you taking half the group. It was great how the timing worked so that we actually met along the north shore and then finished together at the beach. Everyone seemed to have a good time and that's what it's all about. Didn't know about the Dayton group. See you next time around on the water!
