Where on the Western Slope do you live? how long have you been there? Where did you come here from? How did you learn about the WSA group and why did you join? Do you plan to be an "Active" member or is WSA just one more web registration for you?

I have lived in Grand Junction since October 2013 and moved here from Erie, PA. A friend told me about WSA and I DO plan on being active in the group.

How and about what time in life did you get started with outdoor recreation? What are a few of your favorite outdoor activities?

In college (20ish) I started training/racing in road races, triathlons, and adventure races. I enjoy a variety of activities: climbing, MTB, road biking, trial running, skate skiing, downhill skiing, and hiking.

What is the most challenging hike, bike, backpack, 14er, canyoneering, ski/snowshoe, river trip or other outing you've ever done? How or why was that; and, would you do that or something similar again?

Probably Ironman St. George or a 24-hr adventure race south of Pittsburgh. No I would likely not do these again. I enjoy being outside and having fun, NOT putting in mindless miles!

Where is the most scenic place you have ever slept in a tent, walked or biked on a trail or travelled by paddle or oar down a river?

Valdez, AK or Banff.

After you've been on a few events with us, what kind of event might you be willing to to initiate and share with fellow WSA adventurers? Organize a hike? road or mtn bike ride? an evening on the river? a ski or snowshoe on Grand Mesa? Or... ?

Skate skiing on the Mesa, trail run, or road bike.

Introduction

I am from northwestern PA and have a background in triathlons, road races, and adventure races. My wife and I moved to CO to experience the variety of outdoor activities that PA lacked.
