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.)

My Appalachian trail thru hike was the best single hike of my life. Hikes up Whitney (14,400), Kilimanjaro (19,000), Kung Karpo (14,200) and Wildstrubel (12,000) were fun hikes.

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

day hikes, overnights, backpacking, winter hiking, bushwhacking

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

Finished my hiking goals (distance and height). Finished NEHH. Working on Winter NH48. Enjoy hiking in many mountain ranges of world for different cultures and scenery.

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

Appalachain Trail. I had a few 30+ mile days carrying a 50 pound pack! Hiking the trail for one month in a downpour was not much fun.

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

No
