Have you heard of, or are familiar with “Trail Etiquette”?

Yes, that's where you stop and stand aside for the people who are tired, sweating, and out of breath coming up the hill who are ironically looking for any excuse to take a break and encourage them by telling them just how far it actually is to the top, and allow them to continue on without a break. And they thank you for it, sometimes. Pack it in, pack it out. Don't cut switchbacks. It's a lot like driving, don't be a roadblock, use the turnouts to let others pass, and don't tailgate- especially when bushwhacking off trail, it hurts. Wait until people are out of earshot to make fun of their get-up, and encourage others to respect the fellow hiker. That sort of thing.

With “1” being no experience and “10” being a well-seasoned hiker, how would you rate your skill level on a scale from 1 to 10? (Being a marathon runner or weight lifter doesn’t mean that you are necessarily ready for moderate or strenuous hikes)

10.2

If you do not know your skill level, would you be willing to come on one of our "New Member" hikes up Rattlesnake Ledge and discuss your abilities with an organizer then? If you are well aware of your skill level, please answer “Not Applicable”

"Not Applicable"

What is the favorite, most difficult hike you’ve done in WA State? If you have no experience, please answer “Not Applicable”

Hmm.. my favorite hike is Mt. Persis, most difficult is Mt. Rainier

Is there a trail you have been wanting to do and would love to conquer with other members of The Seattle Hiking Group? If you do not have one, please answer “None”

Lots, my list never ends...
