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 hike mostly locally - Blue Hills, and the Fells - and then two or three times a year I'll go up to Northern NH or Maine to do some hikes.

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 of moderate difficulty. I want to feel like I've gotten a workout.

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

I like being outside, getting exercise, and enjoying the quiet.

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

I hiked what I THINK was Little Haystack in the White Mountains? I don't recall exactly - it was 6 or so years ago- but it was the only hike of the year, I gained over 4k in elevation, and hiked it in sneakers. I couldn't walk for a week after that. It was stupid.

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

I have trail maps of Blue Hills and the Fells but I've never once hiked there without getting lost. I'm hopeless when it comes to following maps / trail signs. I'm a good organizer, but I wouldn't trust myself to actually lead a group from Point A to Point B (we'd inevitably and unintentionally see Points C - Z along the way).

Introduction

Hi! Just moved back to New England after several years in NYC. I like hiking in Blue Hills and the Fells.
