Hello, everyone 🙂
Growing up a Hoosier, I’ve always lived on flat land. My husband and I moved out here a year ago and we love the scenery. I’m new to hiking and am quickly getting into it. We live in Costa Mesa, so I’ve primarily hiked in Orange County. I’ve done a few group hikes through Irvine Ranch Conservancy, but I’d love to meet more people who enjoy the sport.
Not sure how close-knit of a community this is, but I thought I’d introduce myself. 🙂November 15, 2016 at 7:22 pm #86082

Hello all. My name is Gavin and I live in North LA county (Santa Clarita). I grew up hiking all over the Santa Monica Mountaina and have backed a bunch when I was younger and first married. Took the kids to Bishop over the summer for a nice 3 day trip.
Currently I am trying to build back up after a work injury to do the JMT.
I’ve been hiking all over the Santa Clarita area to get ready for longer through hikes.December 31, 2016 at 8:04 pm #87427

Hi! My name is Angelina and I am from San Bernardino. I have been hiking since I met my husband over 6 years ago. He introduced me to trails and international travel. I introduced him to marathon running and veganism. It’s been a good exchange. We both recently signed up for the Six Peak challenge and I excited to put hiking as a bigger priority in 2017.January 7, 2017 at 8:21 pm #87695

Hi everyone! I’m Katie Joy–a recent LA-transplant from Seattle. My brothers and I grew up hiking/backpacking together in Montana. We all live in different states now, but get together every summer for a backpacking adventure back home–this past summer we hiked into the Bob Marshall wilderness for some pretty insane fly fishing. This year, we’re doing things a little bit differently by engaging in a friendly #siblingrivalry competition to see who can tally the most peaks in our respective states. Mostly, it’s just a way for us to stay connected and committed to getting out as our lives get busier and more adult(ish).
So, with that in mind, I signed up for this challenge to give me a head start (because this big sister does not lose)! I’ll be moving onto some of Cali’s 14ers by this summer, and by next summer will also be attempt to thru-hike the JMT with one of my best buds from elementary school. Since I am so new to SoCal, I’d LOVE to meet other hikers. I love solo hiking, for sure, but definitely wouldn’t mind linking up with others from this challenge.
Cheers and happy hiking!
