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 longer than I can remember. This summer I've been getting out into the whites, probably every other weekend. Hikes with water, or along ridges are always nice, like the Falling waters trail, and Franconia ridge.

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

Day hikes are my standard - it's freeing to not have the gear weighing you down. But overnights are freeing in that you immerse yourself more deeply in the wilderness.

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

I just enjoy being outdoors, seeing and sharing the sights.

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

I've been up the highest mountains in the whites, and some even higher ones in Colorado, but the weather is what I find can make a hike tough, much more quickly than the elevation or ruggedness of the terrain. So the toughest for me wasn't Washington, but Boott Spur on a cold, drizzly and incredibly windy day. Oh, and a hike over Monroe with sudden hail and strong wind!

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

The only hikes I've 'led' have been with family and friends. It's possible that after I've befriended enough Random hikers it would be comfortable for me to lead a bit.

Introduction

Being active outside and seeing some sights with like minded people is the best.
