Hello Everyone,

My name is Carissa and I'm very excited to join the REI Community.

I am interested in spending time outdoors and connecting with others who have the same interest. I'm also interested in learning from each of you and hearing all of your recommendations on gear, locations, meet-ups, seminars, trips, etc. 

I enjoy running and just completed my first half marathon

I enjoy hiking I am working on my 4,000 footers here in New Hampshire; 8 completed thus far 

I would like to start getting into some winter activities such as winter hiking and snowshoeing; this is very new to me and would love some mentorship

Hope to hear from you soon,
