Looking for hiking and backpacking partner(s) in NY and the NE - esp. the Adirondacks and Catskills on 09/27/2007 15:42:04 MDT Print View

I'm a relatively new hiker and backpacker who and I'd like to continue hiking through the fall and winter. I'm pretty fit and I'm currently aquiring all the necesary gear (albeit slowly).

If you're interested in hiking or backpacking anytime in the near future, please let me know.

There's only so many times I can drag my girlfriend out with me and most of my firends are either scumbag musicians or academics...who don't venture outdoors in fall or winter.

I'll be heading out occasionally throughout the winter. Although I'm mainly going to be hitting southern Vermont and the Berkshires of Massachusetts, I will also be venturing toward the central and northern Catskills and the southern Adirondacks. I normally end up hiking alone so I'd welcome the company.

Catskill - ADK hikes planned on 09/28/2007 08:03:51 MDT Print View

A group of us are planning a trip to the Catskills or Adirondaks over Columbus Day weekend. In fact, some of us head out one way or another each month. We are mostly a group of guys in our early 50's, but younger guys and gals join in at other times. Average daily distance that time of year would probably be around 8 to 10 miles in that terraine if we are carrying overnight gear. We live across NY State: Long Island, New Paltz and Buffalo. E mail me at PaddyBeer at if you or anyone else is interested

Hi John. Thanks for the reply. I've never been to Vermont or the Berkshires, but I'm certainly willing to give them a try. Let's email a little bit and talk dates and so forth. You can email me at dhorton79 [AT] gmail [DOT] com. Or PM me I suppose. Look forward to hearing from you!

Kevin, coincidentally my girlfriend and I are planning to go the Adirondacks on the same weekend. We have no firm plan as of yet. Maybe we could meet up? We should definitely talk.

I should mention one complication though: I live in Brooklyn so I don't own a car. This means I have to either take public transportation or rent a car when I head out. This always tends to be a complication unfortunately. And it's expensive...
