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.
All of the above work?
enjoy being outdoors.
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.
Unfortunately I do not.
New to the Area. Love the outdoors. Meeting people is a plus
