About Me Grew up playing in the lakes and the mountains of North Georgia. Started backpacking in a coed Explorer Scout Troup in the 1970's (yes I am a girl) I outfitted & led groups on backpacking trips for 20 years until I was totalled by a drunk driver. I got back on the trail when I read Ray Jardine's book Beyond Backpacking. I teach lightweight backpacking programs for different groups and currently have a great gig at the LenFoote Hike Inn. I am a member of the Trail Dames hiking club.

Re: Re: Re: patronizing?
Gentlemen..Yes I agree that what the man did was probably "all of the above" fatherly, protective, patronizing and rude". BUT the man was at least my age (almost 50) and he acted his age. I had spe...

Re: Re: Hiking alone--a female perspective
Hey Dale..I really appreciate your attitude there. Something else you may consider is a positive comment. I suspect most of the women hiking solo are very experienced. I do not look like a rookie, ...
