Introduction

I'm a three season hiker/backpacker who tries likes hiking peaks and tries to get out on the trails most weekends. Completed NH4K in Aug 2012 with Random Group of Hikers.

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 started hiking again 6 years ago after taking several years off and completed the NH 4000 footers in Aug 2012. I hike mostly during the summer months but I started winter hiking this past year. My favorite places are anywhere above tree line with sweeping views.

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

I like both day hikes and overnight backpacks.

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

I like being outdoors with a good group of like-minded people. Currently I'm focusing my trips on the NE 100 highest and 52 WAV.

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

The most difficult hike in recent memory was the second day of a hut stay through the Wild River Wilderness. The distance and poor trail conditions on the Moriah Brook Trail combined for a difficult hike.

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

Possibly. I'd like to have more experience with the group first.
