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.)

30+ years, once a week when working, 3 - 5 times a week when not. I do most of my hiking in mountains of AZ. Around here the Blue Hills and Middlesex Fells.

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

I've done mostly day hikes recently. Most are on trails but I do some bushwhacking. I'm buying a backpacking tent so will be interested in overnight backpacks also.

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

Enjoy being outdoors.

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

Backpacking in Nepal was tough, probably because carrying too much. Hikes I find tough are very steep ones, i.e. some of the steep ones in the Catalina mountains of AZ. I'm fine on the up but slow on the down in rocky terrain.

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

Yes, I've led hikes and would be interested in leading some hikes.


My name is Diane. I love all outdoor activities, including hiking, and the "random" in your title appeals to me.
