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 started hiking officially as a boyscout,and later as an explorer scout. I've done some trekking where I grew up in the Catskills around the upper Delaware River, Camp Ranachqua in ten mile river, the Adirondaks near Speculator and Warrensburg, While stationed abroad in the US Navy I had opportunites for brief hikes in Grazalema Spain and Rhonda, hiked a portion of Mount Sinai in Egypt and did some short hikes to Mount Eboshi in Sasebo Japan..

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

I like day hikes

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

I enjoy being outdoors

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

Most difficult hike that I'd ever made was being deprived of food for about 30 hours for a wilderness survival merit badge and undertaking a forced march for over 20 miles in and out of the area where we had to set up camp overnight with not even a standard hiking knife or fire starter allowed to be taken with us.

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

No recent experience. Used to be a patrol leader for troop 110 in the Mid-Hudson council and was a river canoe guide on the upper Delaware many moons ago.
