How did you find out about us?

I hiked on the Crowders Mtn to Kings Mtn hike last April - it was a 14 mile hike just before Easter.

Where is your favorite location for outdoor activities (local and not-so-local?)

I have enjoyed all the places we have hiked in NC - Pisgah, DuPont State Forest, etc. Just the chance to get away and enjoy the outdoors is a favorite place for me. 4 years ago, I took my kids to Glacier, Yellowstone, and Grand Tetons and that was a favorite until we went to Grand Canyon, Arches, Zion and Bryce this summer - the Utah National Parks are now our not-so-local favorite.

What outdoor activities are you interested in?

Mostly interested in hiking but am willing to try most any outdoor activity. I have never actually backpacked over night but would like to try that at some point. My 17 year old daughter and I have a goal within the next several years to do a 3-4 day hike of the Rim-to-Rim trail at the Grand Canyon I used to mountain bike many years ago and wouldn't mind picking that up again

What is your favorite outdoor activity and what is your skill level (novice, intermediate or skilled?)

Even if I am not especially fast, I consider myself an intermediate to skilled day hiker. Hiking would have to be my favorite outdoor activity


I am an 8th grade science teacher in Rock Hill, SC. Absolutely love the outdoors and have done a good bit of day hiking and backpacking. Enjoy meeting others who enjoy the outdoors as much as I do.
