Please use a picture showing your face. Some event hosts require it, and it is always helps to recognize people.

It was quite long, but yes. I appreciate the information.

Do you understand that these are social events for hikers, and you are responsible for your own safety at all times?

Yes.

Which types of events interest you: Short day hikes, long day hikes, weekend camping, backpacking, winter hiking, world travel, rock climbing, canyoneering, mountaineering, etc?

I would start with short day hikes and potentially be interested in camping with this group (I am a scout). I am open to learning new skills, as well.

Do you have any hiking experience? If yes, where and what kind of trips? Please provide a brief description of length, duration and trail difficulty as this information helps us better plan events suitable for the group.

Most recently, I hiked up a dormant volcano in Kenya, the trails near the Hudson at Cold Spring and a small mountain (Little Si) outside of Seattle. I decided to actively take up hiking again less than a year ago and look forward to new adventures!

Would you say you're a slow, intermediate, or fast hiker?

I've only done day hikes, beginner to intermediate levels. In this group I would start in the slow group to gauge my ability.

Introduction

I'm a native of upstate NY and after living a few years in NYC have decided to lead a more balanced urban/nature lifestyle. I want to meet lovers of nature!
