Hello, world! from Harrisburg, PA

So, the subject is an old reference to an early programming exercise. My education and career are in IT.

I enjoy being outdoors, particularly hiking. It's a great way to get away from the daily grind. I've been putting a few miles on my Oboz Tamarack shoes every week. 🚶‍♂️ But I do miss being with my hiking friends. 

The other outdoor activity I enjoy is running. Although I'm not setting any records. 😀

I'd like to get out canoeing or kayaking, but don't have either. I should make an effort to check out some outfitters.

Hi @JDS15 !  Welcome to the forum.  Nice to see someone from the same general area as me.  I live downstream from you, near where the mighty Susquehanna empties into the Chesapeake Bay, and I frequent trails around the river, both hiking and biking.  I also kayak on it, and many of its tributaries.

Hello, @JDS15! Welcome!

I really did try hard to keep running with the C Programming Language reference but I just couldn't quite figure out how to work it in there. Oh well, just know I appreciate it! Welcome!

I also want to connect you all with @jmpeck2 as I believe they are also from central/eastern Pennsylvania. I know a while back they were looking for some advice on snowshoe trails. It's probably a bit late for that now (we still have a ton of snow on the ground up here in Alaska) but maybe you could swap some trail ideas anyway.

Great to get everyone connected!

@REI-JohnJ !  I think I may be offended!  I am from the Old Line State...Maryland!  The people who are obsessed with their flag.   I just visit Pennsylvania from time-to-time.

Just kidding.  I'm not in the least offended.  Just messing with you and my neighbors to the north.  😃

@Rob6 HA!

Given the distances from one place to another in Alaska you all look like you live next door to each other to me!

As a fellow Pennsylvanian (not far from where you live), Pa has a lot to offer as far as trails, parks, rivers, forests, etc.  There are a number of hiking clubs. Take advantage of them when the time is that we can do so.   I think a number of us miss our hiking friends. It's just not the same hiking without them. 

Welcome to the forum! Cheers!
