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'm a moderate/advanced hiker with backpacking, camping, and hiking experience. Favorite places include Yosemite and Joshua Tree. I try to get out once or twice a month during the spring and summer months. Just did Mt. Waumbek last weekend.

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

These days I prefer day hikes, 6 to 12 miles with elevation is great.

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

Stay in shape, meet new people, network, explore nature.

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

I backpacked Lost Coast and hiked Half Dome/Yosemite, and both were difficult. Lost Coast was mentally hard, as we hiked on a rocky beach for 3 days with no change in scenery. Half dome..enough said.

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

No, leading hikes is not for me.

Introduction

Hello - I've been hiking for 10 years or so, mostly in California, but recently in Mass.
