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 have been hiking seriously for 7 years. I try to get out at least once a month. I have hiked in NH, Wales, Switzerland, Kilimanjaro and Nepal (Gokyo Ri). Just beginning to explore rock and ice climbing.

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

I love day hikes. I would like to do more overnights but don't have much experience. I like to be challenged physically and mentally.

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

My only real goal is to spend as much time in the mountains as I can. I don't feel compelled to finish any particular list right now but who knows?

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

Summit day on Kilimanjaro was the toughest. The length of the day, frozen food I was unable to eat and the altitude all made for a tough but incredible experience.

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

Eventually I would be happy to lead an event but need to get acquainted with the group and how you do things first.


Hi, my love for hiking has now exceeded that of my family and friends. I am hoping to meet more like- minded people eager to share great days in the mountains.
