Hello from New Hampshire,
My name is Jefferson (first name). I used to live in California, but moved to New Hampshire. About to turn 50 and still haven't found a decent place to find anyone or a group to go hiking with.
I am a beginner, but am acquiring gear to get started as I am very much interested in the outdoors and beautiful landscapes. looking for hikes that don't start at the crack of dawn for my starting hikes. I am in good health and work out. Seems as though the younger generation have this pre-conceived notions and stereo-types about my generation.
Maybe I will be more successful here.
