I went on my first hike while in high school over 40 years ago. I get out as often as four times a week, but some are short jaunts.
I enjoy day hikes, but would consider learning how to do overnights. I often go bushwhacking sometimes accidentally as oftentimes I follow possible trails to "nowhere."
I enjoy being outdoors in the forest.
My most difficult hikes (actually trail runs) occurred after I had fallen during the race or on days when the weather became too hot.
I would like to lead events in my area and possibly have a get together at my house.
I live near many great hiking places - the Midstate Trail and Wapack Trail, Mount Watatic, Mount Wachusett, and Mount Monadnock. While I'm on trails I'm usually running, but I do hike sometimes too.
Well, Well, I've only met a very small sample of the hikers, but if the others in the group are similar to those I've met so far then this is an absolutely wonderful company of people.
