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 dad took me hiking when I was 10. 25 years ago. I try to get out at least 2 times a month. Kearsarge North Mountain is my favorite place.

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

I'm not a fan of day hikes. I love carrying a 40+ pound backpack 8 miles deep into the woods and set up camp. It's peaceful. I'm not a fan of bushwhacking. I did it once and I haven't done it since.

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

I Want to finish my New Hampshire 4,000 foot list. Then I want to do the New England 67. I would love to hike the Appalachian Trail & Mount McKinley.

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

Bondcliff, Mount Bond, Guyot, & South Twin. Broke my leg on Bondcliff and I had to hike 15 miles with a fractured femur.

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

Yes I do. I am an experienced hiker and I took hikers with no experience with me.


My name is John. I live in Lawrence, Massachusetts. I love the outdoors. Hiking, camping, fishing, etc.
