I'm a four season hiker. I live in Cambridge in the Porter/Davis area. I'm looking to share rides to the mountains. Carpooling is more fun, better environmentally and cheaper. My dog Loki is my regular hiking companion.
I've been an avid backpacker since 1999, getting out for trips between 100 and 300 miles almost every summer, in addition to many shorter trips. Over the past 5 years, I have been doing more day hikes.
Backpacks are my favorite. I'm coming to love winter hikes. I've also recently developed an appetite for longer (>20 mile) hikes and for bushwhacks.
My primary goal is to get out more often. The New England 100 highest is on my radar and I'd like to eventually do the NH 48 in every season. My dog has 46 of the NH 48. I've done the New England 67 4K peaks.
Most strenuous: Either the Long Trail (272 miles + access trails) in 2010 in 18 days, finishing with a 28 mile day, or the AT Monson to Pinkham Notch with side trips and bushwhacks to peak bag (210+ miles in 13 days). Difficulty was due to mileage on rugged trail with a full pack day after day. Most difficult: Long Trail in '05 while recovering from a serious injury. Biggest day hike of 2012: One day Pemi Loop + 4 neighboring peaks (12 4K peaks total). My journals for The Long Trail: http://www.trailjournals.com/pedxinglt
Yes - It's great to see how Random has progressed, it's a model for other groups to emulate and would be great to be a part of.
This is a great well organized group that keeps getting better.
David, Sorry to miss this morning's hike. Please accept my apology for not changing my rsvp sooner. We had a family emergency here as my mum is in the hospital. Thankfully, she's stable. Hope to join you next time. Thanks for organizing.
Can't join you but would like to donate. Can you give me info for donation? Good luck, Elizabeth
Hi David. Sorry for the confusion..I did find the other info. that I asked you about, and I won't be able to fit in a 4 hour hike. I can't find out how to change my RSVP.
Hi David. Just signed up for the Friday 9:30 Fells hike. Didn't quite see where we're meeting, or how long you expect to be out? Thanks in advance for getting me that info.
David, Thanks for allowing me to join the Fells hike last min and for leading such a nice hike on a perfect day. I enjoyed meeting everybody in the group and hope to get out hiking more often. Thank you, and cheers! Rocio
Thanks for organizing and leading the hike yesterday. It was a good time. I look forward to your next outing.
Hello! It was very nice to join everyone on yesterday's hike - it was great!!! Looking forward to more trips :)
hi David, I went to the Fells this morning. Didn't see you. Did I miss something? Thanks! ellie
Hi David, UNABLE TO COME ON TODAYS WAPACK TRAIL HIKE afterall. Hoping you get this message!!!!! Pack all set but last minute demands here. Apologies. Looking for the email w. your cell# and hoping to find it to leave message there as well.
Ped- As a lot of yeses seemed to cancel without notification, I was going to stop by on Sun. If you have spaces, fine, if not, at least I'll get a chance to meet you and all. I typically try to practice in my gear, so it is actually practice- will I be an outlier/ appear strange if I brought a full pack?
