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.)

Hiking - usually 1-day or overnight - for about 5 years, moderate grade mountains, no rock climbing or ropes.

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

Day hikes, some overnighters with packs, likely not bushwhacking.

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

No specific goals for hiking; more related to fitting into schedules and the scenery of the hike.

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

Mount Washington was reasonable (good weather) however another hike (cannot remember the trip) was steeper in narrower paths in ice. Very cold and slippery both ways and strenuous in sweating profusely despite the cold.

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

May want to do after we experience some with the group and check times on other obligations.


My wife and I are active and enjoy hiking, cycling, backpacking usually on on-day, sometime overnight, trips, as well as cooking on the trips. We have been involved in Boy Scouts and related activities/ camping. Climbed Mount Washington 1 day.

What Ed R. is saying about this Meetup Group
