Hello everyone. I found my way on a sidetrail to this site during my life's hike from northern FLA to the great state of Washington, and I'm happy to say I couldn't have found a more inviting encampment. My goals this season are quite simple: I wish to constantly improve my preparedness and awareness of nature, and I find that hiking as a joyful meditation on what in means to simply Be in this great Earth. Whether you can dig it or not, I'm glad to be here, and I hope we all see some wonderful hikes in the coming seasons!

Cheers!

Well.. after a (long) hiatus from the forum.. I'm back.  Pleased to say that I'm no longer drooling over images of WA and OR from flat and dry New Mexico, but, getting out and drooling over the scenery in person. Moved out to the Spokane area in April.  Really looking forward to meeting some of yall.

Hello!
I was steered over here by another member, and very happy to have found yet another place to socialize and swap stories about the trails we love.
I've been hiking, camping, and backpacking for most of my life. More recently I've discovered a real passion for being in the mountains and consider hiking to be a key part of my mental health plan.
Last summer I was lucky enough to complete the John Muir Trail in California.
This summer I'm hiking the PCT through Washington, to properly show my love for our magnificent Cascades!
Looking forward to chatting.

Hello I am new to this forum.
Just call me Words behind me. For now till we get to know each other...

Been on others forums. And enjoyed chatting with others ...I was doing photography... But cameras down for the time...as I have been down as well.
Bad knees...fingers crossed hope to get out of that spot soon enough.

I have gone on short hikes to a few long ones...
Done mountains hills and city hikes hey yea the cities were once hills and mountains... Seattle use to have some big hills till they moved them...that was before trolley times...

Use to complain about traveling so far when I was younger but today its like lord all that time I could of gone on more walking hikes just crossing the Snoquamie pass or Steven's...

When I moved in 73 to Wyomong I was actually training for my hikes on the holl side of our trailer park...gone now but oh the days...that training was usefil during the many girl scout camps...

I today so wish the knees would not hurt so much I would be out walking more hiking as well.
I use to work as a nurses aide and nihhts was my best for in the morning after getting off I could take my time going home...since my lil one was just starting school and one had afternoon class their dad did not go to work till 2pm so I would at times head up to some place and park and do a bit of hiking... Trailing along till I felt time pushing me .. This helpped to not get stuck in traffic wasting gas... By the time I hit the freeway or hyways it was clear ...working in Monroe and living in Des Moines had its pitfalls...

So trail beach city or hills and mountains are my game ...on and off the beaten paths.
Not much to tread mills but biking is just as fun either in front of the window or on the bike trails...

Mydaughter mentioned the PCT never heard of it maybe cause I never listened in to many others conversations ...but today that sure sounds like some fun walk...sure wish I was able to do it but in the shape I am in nope no way...maybe horse back but not on foot.

And yes my dad was relations to Gordon Stuart and as well because of some stolen credit cards and banking issues as well as other incedents placed togeather makes me believe that my dad was the real DB COOPER. A Book working on it gathering information as I can.

Well there is lots more about me but for now I best leave it at that.

Hello my name is Chris 2000. I became active at the Long Island Institute for advanced programming in 1955.

My instructor was Mr Fielding and he taught me a song would you like to hear it?

It goes something like this. Daisy Daisy give me your answer due.

I'm half-crazy all for the love of you.

Hello all!

I'm an avid hiker(summer) and skier (winter), primarily in areas close to Bellingham. I consider myself incredibly lucky to have access to so much stellar mountain terrain since moving to the PNW. I fell in love with the Rainy Pass/Maple Pass area of the North Cascades this summer, and also love hiking the Cascade volcanoes - St. Helen's was a highlight of the past couple of years. This group seems like an amazing resource for beta and hiking destinations, and I look forward to learning more from all of you!

Hello all NW Hikers.

I'm emotaco, originally from the East Coast, but now living it up here in WA.  Avid snowboarder, hiker, and backpacker so this is certainly the place for me.  I have plans to thru hike the PCT in 2019, but in the mean time, just trying to hike (or board) every trail possible.

Hi all,
It's taken an "incident" in one of my favorite places to motivate me to begin posting. Have been enjoying the insights & humor here for a while; discovered the site after solo home ownership began cutting into my rec time.  frown.gif

Relevant info about me: First taste of high country - Wind River Range in Wyoming, after my first year in university.  Got hooked on THE WEST.  Not long after - resident in the Canadian Rockies for 4 years.  Still consider the mountains of Canada my spiritual home.  BC coast a close second. Living and hiking in WA since the 80's.  After one guided climb in the Cascades, decided that hiking and scrambling provided thrilling enough altitude & escape. Still enjoy armchair mountaineering, though.
