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

Hiking, camping and cycling would probably be my top choices. I've never skied or snowshoed, but wouldn't mind trying both. Not big on watersports, wouldn't mind taking a stab at some rock-climbing or spelunking sometime as well.

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

My main outdoor activity now is cycling, both road and MTB. I do most of my MTB riding around Lake Crabtree County Park, Umstead Park and surrounding areas. I road bike mainly around Chapel Hill and Orange County.

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

Not sure how "hiking level" is measured, so not sure how to answer this. I'm so-so on overall fitness... I had a heart-attack last November, but just completed a 6 hour MTB endurance race 2 weeks ago, so I'm starting to work my way back to a decent level of fitness. Planning to lose about 50 more lbs over the next 6-7 months or so. Expectations? Just to join cool group activities, meet new friends, learn new places to explore, etc.
