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.)

I've been hiking for over 20 years, and have hiked all 48 of the NH 4000 footers in both the summer and winter seasons. Some of my most favorite places include Bondcliff, Shelburne Moriah, Mt. Carrigain, the "chimney" between the two Osceola peaks and the Osgood Trail from the summit of Mt. Madison.

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

I do day hikes best. I'm not much of a backpacker; I enjoy long hikes, but prefer to be out of the woods at the end of the day.

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

I'm not a list keeper, especially having hiked the highest peaks, I just enjoy being out in the mountains. Even the same hike can deliver a new experience, or have some form of different character each time it is hiked.

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

Huntington Ravine Trail. Just plain steep, and there was still some snow on the trail which necessitated altering the route a bit.

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

Yes. I have led numerous multi-day cycling trips. I feel I have good knowledge of the mountains and would be interested in leading my own event with the Random Hikers.

Introduction

My name is Steve Blum and I live in Bartlett, NH. I hike, bike and telemark ski on a regular basis depending on season and weather conditions. I am a dentist associated two days a week in Gorham, New Hampshire.

What Steve B. is saying about this Meetup Group

This was my first first meetup group and therefore my first hike as a Randomite. Everyone was warm and inviting to me and I felt early into the hike that I was with a group of friends with whom I had hiked often. This particular hike also exhibited excellent organization and leadership skills. I look forward to many more fun and delightful days!
