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.)

Currently hiking several times a week in the Blue Hills Reservation, which is very close to where I live

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

Fast paced with hilly terrain. I respect nature, so off trail and disturbing / damaging isn't my style. Leave footprints and take memories - minimal disturbance of nature

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

Clearing my mind and working my body, get some fresh air and enjoy the beauty of nature

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

Probably a hike in fall 2009 over some peaks near the German/Austrian border. Didn't use GPS, but must have been 15+ miles between 4000 and 7000ft above sea level. It was tough because I hadn't hiked in years. Much higher fitness level now

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

No leadership experience, yet I usually pay close attention to all members and if anyone falls behind. I'm frequently away on travels and still try getting to know the area, so not yet comfortable with leading in unknown terrain - but I tend to stick around and maybe in several months …

Introduction

Hi, I live in Quincy and hike for about as long as I can walk, having grown up not too far from the German and Austrian Alps. Accordingly I like trips that are physically demanding
