|H Smashley! Welcome! I'm sorry nobody has responded to you yet. I hope you will hang around the site a bit and start to get to know people. It can take time to build up a network of hiking friends.
I'd offer to go with you, but I am honestly THE slowest hiker ever, I have foot issues, I need to rest a lot, and I stop too often to take photos. I tend to frustrate people who are quick and fit. I don't hike really long or strenuous hikes. That said, if you feel like you want to go SSSLLLLOOOOOWWWW sometime, send me a PM. I generally hike on Fridays, but sometimes Saturdays if I can offload all the kid duties.
I recommend following people's trip reports, commenting, getting a feel for who is here, and posting for partners when you know there's a specific hike you want to do. Hopefully there are other gals out there who fit more with your hiking style who will want partners, too.
