How long have you been hiking?

I've been hiking most of my life (I turned 50 this year). As a child, we mostly hiked the C&O, George Washington National Forest, and the Blue Ridge. As an adult, I try to get out to the Sierra Nevadas every few years and back pack with my brother. I also like to go up to the White Mountains every few years.

Where would you like to go hiking?

I enjoy hiking most anywhere, but especially love the mountains. My favorites are the Sierra Nevadas and the White Mountains in New Hampshire, as well as the Appalachians around here. I would really like to try the Via Ferrata in West Virginia, and am very interested in trying the mountains in western North Carolina. My fantasy is to hike in the Andes, and I would love to go back to hike in Bhutan or the Alps some day.

What else do you like to do in your free time?

I enjoy woodworking, playing violin (I'm still pretty new), reading, seeing movies, listening to good music and seeing good shows, getting together with friends, cooking and eating good food.

Introduction

Hi. I really enjoy hiking, backpacking and getting outdoors, but haven't been getting out as much as I would like. So, I'm looking forward to meeting up with the group to get out there.

What Christopher is saying about this Meetup Group

Very fun and interesting group!
