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 have been hiking for about 30 years, I have climbed most everything in New England in Winter, climbed Rainier & Adams in Washington State, climbed a few 4000m peaks in the Alps, been through the Grand Canyon. My absolute favorite hike is Little Haystack-Lafayette Loop, I like to leave work early, drive up for a 5PM start and come down with a headlamp.

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

Mostly longer dayhikes, but I like backpacking too

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

Probably my goals are the following: not repeating over the same path on the way down (spotted cars or loop is preferable) climbing over rocks and preferably ice at the summit

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

Most strenuous hike? For 2011 it would be doing a Presi Traverse in July, we did it in about 13 hours, I think it is 20 miles with about 8000 feet of elevation gain.

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

Yes, after I get a feel for how it works, that would be great. I have organized literally hundreds of hikes with friends.


Hi, I am a long time 4 season hiker of the mountains of New England and beyond. I am always up for a hike, really looking forward to the cooler weather coming this Fall and Winter. Looking forward to meeting people in the group. Jeff
