What is your hiking experience? (e.g. how long have you been hiking, how often do you get out , where are some of your favorite places, etc.)

I've been hiking my whole life, starting with walks in the woods when I was a child and started hiking more frequently when I was in college. I get out most weekends, and if I have a vacation that's usually what I'm doing. I've done most of my hiking in western Massachusetts on Mt. Greylock and the AT, and have some favorite trails there.

What type of hikes do you like best? (e.g. day hikes, overnight backpacks, hikes that may involve off-trail "bushwhacking", etc.)

day hikes, including off-trail, especially on snowshoes; difficult, long hikes; have been wanting to try backpacking and longer trips

What are your hiking goals? (e.g. just like hiking, enjoy being outdoors, looking to finish one of the "lists", etc.)

I'd like to hike some fourteeners in Colorado, try mountaineering, try new places, especially in NH and also in VT

What is the most strenuous/difficult hike that you have done? What made it so tough?

A day hike in at Rocky Mt National Park for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. We arrived at 8,000 feet a couple days before the hike, which is not enough time to fully acclimate. Being my first hike at elevation without being fully acclimated is what made it difficult. I didn't struggle too much with it, but did get short of breath when normally on a trail like we were on without that kind of elevation, I probably would not have.

Do you have any outdoor leadership experience? Would you be interested in organizing and leading your own events with the Random Hikers??

Possibly. I just led a group of hikers I met on a trail on Mt. Greylock to one of my favorite trails, which is unmarked, with two great look out points. They loved it and were really appreciative so it was really rewarding.

Introduction

Hi, I just moved back to Boston after being away for a couple years, including a brief stay in Colorado, and am looking for people to hike with. I hike all year and snowshoe in the winter. I love spending time outdoors whenever I can.
