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.)

Lifetime. Gear Junkie. Lightweight Backpacking Blogger. I hike 600 miles a year on planned trips and hundreds more on spontaneous day hikes in the Whites, Vermont, Catskills, Gunks, AT, all over basically.

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


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

NH 3000 footers, so mainly bushwhacking, and redlining at the point.

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

The Long Trail - 272 miles of rain. Mostly solo. 2 timeson the TGO Challenge 200+ miles across Scotland. About 1000 miles on the AT.

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

I'm a 4 season hiking and backpacking leader for the Boston AMC.


Redlining the whites, section hiking the AT, sleeping under the stars.
