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.)

5-6 miles of day hiking /week. Sometimes longer 5-15 mile weekend hikes. Maybe 500 miles total on backpacking trips (not so recent though).

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

Moderate hikes with a view. Something like 10 miles or so that has a nice ridgeline. I would like to get out on some overnight backpacking trips (2 day 1 night) in the near future.

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

Explore New England. Never been here. Ice/snow experience. Meet hikers. Looking to do more than just short day hikes. Long day hikes or backpacking trips are in order.

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

84 miles in 8 hiking days, 4 big 12,000+ peaks, and a couple of awesome ridgelines. It was difficult due to the amount of food we needed to carry.

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