How did you hear about our group and what do you expect to get out of it?

On line.

What is your hiking level? Beginning , intermediate, or advanced?

Intermediate usually. But I have been hiking for many years, mostly in the Americas, North and South.

What area do you live in AKA: Roseville, Fair Oaks, Elk Grove Etc...

Arden Creek area, Sacramento

What is your favorite trail?

The one I'm on. As for comparing them, I couldn't choose among them.

Are you interested in organizing hikes for the group?

I don't know. I am quite familiar with the Sierras- have traveled and lived in quite a few places on this planet. I am retired, and now whenever i go on a trip i prefer to make it at least one month. I prefer to be independent of tour agencies and agendas. During the past 10 years I have led 6 groups to south America, mainly Chile and Peru. 25-35 people, but now feel i would limit the group to 6 - 8 just because there is much greater freedom that way- allowing for flexibility. I am just back from Kruger park South Africa, and could advise people who want to take that (incomparable) trip, or perhaps take a small group. I'm at a point in my life where i'm happy to follow, rather than lead, and to be free rather than constrained by plans. So if i do any groups, again that is what i prefer; small groups, one month or more, and seat of the pants travel.


I would usually rather hike than eat but it's a close call at times.

What john l. is saying about this Meetup Group

fine company and hikes.
