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 finished the (48) 4000 footers. Started with Random in Sept. 2007 thanks to Claire. I'll be leading a hike every 3 to 4 weeks. Favorite places are all over and ever changing! Love the winter hikes with snow covered trees and awesome views.

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

Intermediate. Enough to get the heart going but not over the top OMG why am I doing this type of hike. Take time to appreciate nature and just not the summits.

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

Going to do the NE67 and along with it the NE Hundred Highest.

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

The Bonds Traverse for Zealand to Lincoln Woods at 20 miles in one day. What made it hard is I carried 7 liters in case someone ran out of water. Won't do that again as I now have a filter that attaches directly to my Camelback and a Katahdin pump.

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

I am now an Assistant Organizer so I'd put that as a definite "YES"!! Woo Cah!!


"52 With a View" to get beginners out on the trails, New England 100 Highest, NE67, and a Winter of Sledfests!

What John (LAG) L. is saying about this Meetup Group

It's great organizing as I've met a lot of nice and fun people. We hike as a group, everyone pulls together, you are with other non-coach potatoes seeing sites that you wouldn't unless you pushed yourself a little. Dinner as a group afterwards is a plus!! Thanks all for making it fun!
