What is your hiking experience? (e.g. how long have you been hiking, how often do you get out , where are some of your favorite places, etc.)

Been hiking 20 years, climbed Mt. Rainier, Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Hood, Mt. Charleston and Mt. Washington in summer & winter. Hiked to bottom of Grand Canyon 10 times, hiked extensively in Zion, Bryce, Yosemite & other places in the West.

What type of hikes do you like best? (e.g. day hikes, overnight backpacks, hikes that may involve off-trail "bushwhacking", etc.)

All types. Depends on my mood. Love multi-day backcountry trips, easy day-trips, extreme winter mountaineering, multi-day nordic ski trips, etc.

What are your hiking goals? (e.g. just like hiking, enjoy being outdoors, looking to finish one of the "lists", etc.)

Enjoyment, meditation, "soul cleansing" and some adrenaline rush.

What is the most strenuous/difficult hike that you have done? What made it so tough?

Mt. Rainier and the Grand Canyon are a tie for first place.

Do you have any outdoor leadership experience? Would you be interested in organizing and leading your own events with the Random Hikers??

Absolutely!

Introduction

I'm a lifelong hiker, climber, whitewater rafter and all-around adventure guy. I'm more into the beauty and solitude of the outdoors than the adrenaline, but stepping outside the comfort zone is a thrill...

What Jim is saying about this Meetup Group

Awesome but not for the faint of heart...pretty hard core group so be prepared to work.
