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've hiked a bunch all over New England, but know there's so much more to explore! I go to Alaska a lot (sis and her fam live there), and we, or course, hike like crazy. Fav places to hike so far have been Pacific Northwest, 100 Mile Wilderness and Banff. I get out to the Fells or Blue hills once every week or every other week with my dog, and up to VT/NH/ME 1-3 times a month at this point.

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 backpacking, and if someone else is leading, SURE, I'll bushwhack! My dog, Gretel is a great hiker and would love to have her along whenever possible.

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

I like the physicality of hiking and being out of the city now and again. I'm not really a peak-bagger, but don't mind people who are. I don't mind out-and-back hikes like some do. Just like it all and to push myself.

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

100 Mile wilderness on the AT in Maine. Length and terrain.

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

No. Someday I'd like to lead hikes, yes.


Hi! I like to get outside!
