Would you be willing to MEET & GREET or LEAD a hike?

Sure, why not? I'm not sure it's a good idea though!

Where are some places you have hiked?

I've recently returned from Mt. Malarkey. It's located near the township of the same name between France and Germany somewhere! It's where my ancestors originated from. You need tall boots to hike in this region!

What is your favorite trail?

I've become quite fond of the trails at Lookout mtn as I live close. But I'm finding that I get bored at times and go where I shouldn't.

Is there a trail you would enjoy hiking with the group?

My goal is to get into the backpacking part of this hobby. This is where it gets a little more serious, or should I say 'obsessed!' You will find vegetarians and all kind of nuts here. I've already stopped eating raw meat in preparation.

Do you have a particular hiking goal?

See nature, meet people and get stronger to keep me competitive in my primary addiction, basketball. As I get wearier of losing I may switch to hiking.


I'm a native that knows little about local hiking! I look forward to getting to know new people and terrain. Also beware of tall tales and sarcasm.
