Hike off some of the thanksgiving calories and enjoy a day without football. Don't forget your turkey sandwich for lunch and your rain gear.

 

My goals for the trip are as follows:

1. Be safe.

2. Have fun.

3. Learn something.

4. Hike the road as far as daylight allows.

 

My expectations for participants are as follows:

1. Stay with the group.

2. Have the necessary gear to be safe and comfortable and know how to use it.

3.  Participate in group discussions and decision-making regarding route selection and turn-around time.

4. Voice any concerns about trail conditions, terrain choices.

5. Be at least reasonably physically fit.

5. Be open to learning.

My Style:

1. I love puns and jokes and riddles and words.

2. I am easily distracted by nature.

3. I like a good workout but I also like to have a good time.

4. I sometimes take a bit to respond because I'm mulling over my response. If I don't respond to you right away it's because I'm thinking about your question or comment.

5. I'm curious about people, so I may ask you questions about yourself.

6. I enjoy telling stories.

7. My leadership style is flexible, usually it's fairly relaxed. I'm also a big believer in servant leadership.
