Hiking Adventure! Open to beginners
I love meeting people and being outdoors. You let me know your level of experience and interests, and any other previous hikes you've been on (if you don't want to risk a repeat). I will select a trail, put together packs (not clothing or boots- I don't have many size dependent items on hand. Feel free to check though!), and we can go on an adventure! I can drive and have a trail pass, as well. I'm Oregon, born and raised, and know the state very well. I have a 4wd truck, so we can get to any trail our hearts are moved by. We can go local- the Gorge or Forest Park, or we can go more remote- St Helen's, the coast, etc. For very long distances, help with gas cost would be appreciated, though (can't barter for that yet!). This would be a great service for beginners, people who are new to area, etc.
Day hikes only. This is not mountaineering or rock climbing- I'm not talking trail spikes or harnesses here =)
Training & Qualifications
I am an avid hiker, and know many trails throughout the state. I also tend to be good at gauging a comfortable pace for people, and I can carry on a conversation comfortably on the trail. We don't have to walk in silence unless you want to.
Availability & Preferences
I work weekends, unfortunately. Weekdays only.
