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 have been hiking since college although I'm no speed racer. I do mostly day hikes now but really love the weekend backpacking trips. I have done 1 long weekend cross through hike on the AT covering 3 summits.

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

Beginner/Intermediate. I like day hikes and overnight trips, not too much of a fan of bushwhacking, I don't really think its great for the eco system.

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

Have fun, the views (Love the water falls and lagoon areas) get some exercise!

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

AT: CT to MA 15 miles for my first time, It was pretty intense at a fast pace, we covered 3 summits. I am hoping to ease into it a bit more this year and do some shorter day/weekend hikes.

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

Sure once I get a bit more experience

Introduction

Hello! I'm looking to meet some like minded folks who enjoy the outdoors

What Jay is saying about this Meetup Group

This was my first meetup event but you can tell from any of the event descriptions that this group is very organized and takes the safety of its participants very seriously. Looking forward to joining an event that suits my abilities soon.
