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've been hiking for almost a year, start with Blue Hills and have been slowly progressing on my NH4Ks. Try to get out at LEAST a couple times a month although I'd prefer once a week, stupid life getting in the way of things!

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

The kind where I get to go see new places and maybe bag a peak or two.

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

All of the above! Goals and Hiking don't really mix for me, althoguh I'd say surviving them is essential.

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

I did Jackson in NH in early September and there were 80+ mph winds. We all made it back safely but being above treeline when that kind of weather rolls in is hairy.

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

Not yet, but soon!

Introduction

I'm always looking to get out and hike!
