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.)

Appalachian Mountain (NE), Green Mountains Some hikes and treks out west, near S.Lake Tahoe and Taos NM.

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

Overnight and multiday backpackers are the best but I also enjoy dayhikes and peak bagging.

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

Recently completed NH48 and VT 4K's...thinking about a run at Winter 48 and the NE67.

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

Either Baxter Peak (Mt Katahdin)/ Hamlin Peak via Cathedral Trail and Hamlin Ridge or Mt Isolation Via Glen Boulder both ways. Distance/Elev/dry trail so heavy pack. Large group and lots of traffic at Baxter. Also anything over 10K out west that is steep has been difficult.

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

Yes. I lead/organize for NEO40 currently as well as being the advisor to my scout troop high adventure crew.

Introduction

Hi I'm Joe and I hike in NE and other areas of the US. I enjoy hiking with others as well as planning and leading hikes with those who share my passion and respect for the outdoors and the activities that allow us to be out there.
