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.)

Lifelong hiker. I try to get out every week or two, sometimes informally, and sometimes leading AMC trips. Any place is a favorite if there's a challenging and beautiful mountain and at least some level of food/lodging/culture in the area as well.

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

While I'll likely have a fantastic time on any hike or backpack that involves a great mountain, my favorite challenges are (1) big day trips; and/or (2) aggressive bushwhacks. All seasons.

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

#1: Share my passion for the mountains with others. #2: "List work" includes the winter 67/NH100/NE100, and the Grid. I have also been known to forsake the lists simply to enjoy a great day in good company.

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

Technically: a 5.4 ascent/descent of Long's Peak, a Colorado 14er. Physically: a 38.5-mile, 12-peak, 11,700' cumulative elevation gain, single-day Pemi Loop.

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

Yes

What Alex N is saying about this Meetup Group

I've met some great people, and found a number of trips that have the high degree of intensity that I like. It's also great that the trip leadership seems pretty uniformly capable and responsible.
