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.
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.
Enjoy being outdoors.
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.
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.
