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 would call myself a fairly experienced hiker. I've camped ever since I was a kid. I'm an Eagle Scout. I went on a month-long Outward Bound-like trip in high school. I've gone down to Havasupai twice, climbed Half Dome, several mountains in Utah,etc

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 and overnight backpacks. I'd be interested in something like a hut-to-hut in the Presidentials.

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

I like getting away into the beauty of nature and I enjoy the exercise.

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

I did a 2-day 22-mile ascent of an 11928 ft peak in winter.

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

I don't know my way around New England hiking areas very well yet, but I'm open to that in the future.

Introduction

Hi, I'm Derek. I'm 27 and have loved the outdoors all my life. I moved to Boston two years ago and haven't been getting outdoors as much as I would like, and this seems like a great way! I love most outdoor sports: kayaking, climbing, mountain biking
