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

I bicycle, both road and mountain, with a preference for single track. Also camp, backpack, and have enjoyed white water rafting. I have canoed in the Boundry Waters National area on the Minnesota/ Canada border. I've also been known to ride horses.

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

Most of my recent hiking has been at Umstead. I have hiked in Pisgah Forest, Yosemite, and Daughton Park, within the last 3 years, as well

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

I have been hiking, off and on for 30+ years. I walk at about 3.5 mph, which of course slows down when backpacking, or going heavily uphill. A 5 mile hike, is not a problem anytime

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


I've done some backpacking, as well as biking and hiking. I love the variety offered locally, and always find myself looking forward to the next new adventure, be it local, or thousands of miles away.
