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 around five years now and have been hiking a lot in the Whites since I moved to New England in 2011. I'm working on my 48 and have done 38 as of 8/18/14. I plan to try and finish my next Summer. I've been hiking most weekend this Summer and did around 5 4ks last Winter (my first year winter hiking). I just enjoy the challenge of peak bagging.

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

Mostly day hikes. I have done some backpacking but I prefer to car camp before and after a hike.

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

I want to finish the 48 4ks in NH by July of 2015 (my 30th bday). I've done 38 as of 8/18/14. After that I would like to finish the Vt 4ks and ME 4ks.

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

Owls Head because of the distance and the slide (not much of a slide person) and perhaps Mt. Washington (but I've done it three times so far). I find winter hiking to be very challenging as well.

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

No and not really.

Hey, I'm Jen. I'm an avid hiker but I enjoy snowshoeing, cycling, and skiing as well.
