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 during high school while on vacations in the pacific northwest. I hiked less during college, but started up again about 10 years ago. I hike regularly in the whites and irregularly in Europe and the west coast of the US.

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

I love backpacking. I've done a few week long backpacks, but rarely have time for more than 2-3 days weekend trips these days.

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

I am working on some lists, but mostly I just like getting out and away from civilization.

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

Oh, there were a few difficult ones. One was long and boring and my feet hurt. One started at 11pm and ended at noon the following day. One involved a week of rain and lots of slush. They make good stories though, so we can talk about them in person on the trail. : )

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

Yep, I took the AMC leadership training course with Michael B : )


I'm a 4 season hiker and backpacker.
