I live near Cameron Village in Raleigh.

What type of THOG events are you interested in participating in? (ie hiking, backpacking, camping, cycling, paddling, skiing, snowshoeing, nature photography, geocaching, etc)?

Hiking, backpacking (nothing too extreme as I think that too much weight slows me down and hurts the backpack experience). I'm looking to get a road bike. Photography. I would like to get into cross country skiing.

Here's your chance to show off! Where are your favorite places to explore? (you don't have to divulge all your secret places!)

I loved the High Peaks in the Adironacks. Charlottesville is one of my favorite places for a quick long weekend. I'm a fan of Uwharrie for a day trip. But, really, Eastern US mountains are all fun.

What is your hiking level? What are your expectations from joining THOG? What do you hope to gain from THOG membership?

I like to do all day hikes (8 hours, lots of miles). I'm not experienced at hiking and camping (hauling in your own gear). Usually I drive to a trailhead and hike all day and come back to a town for beer and food. I'd like to meetup with likeminded people to explore some new areas, but I'd also like to get exposed to some more outdoor activities and techniques.

By joining THOG, you agree that you have read, understood and abide by our Member Code of Conduct and Trip Participation Waiver. You agree that participating in our activities is voluntary and you are solely responsible for yourself and your guests

I Agree.


Primarily I enjoy long day hikes, but have an interest in getting into some camping. I've been in Raleigh for a few years and am looking for a group to potentially go hiking with and learn about new routes in the region.
