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'm likely somewhere between beginner and intermediate. I've lived in places like Alaska and worked for tourism companies that take groups on hikes level 2-5. Still, even though I've been a part of those groups I don't feel especially knowledgeable.

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

All of the above work?

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?

I haven't felt stressed by a hike in a long time. But, some of the level 3 hikes in Alaska were stressful for terrain/weather reasons. Especially slippery when wet with lots of mud and a large elevation gain. Definitely a gear/preparation issue.

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

Unfortunately I do not.
