I'm an "alumni leader" for the Family Outings group. I led ski, camping and hiking trips for many years until my son "aged out" but I still love hanging out with kids and sharing my joy in all things outdoorsy with kids and parents alike. I also love to cook for groups and get folks together over the prep table.
I was the long time chair of the family outings committee and led dozens of trips over the years before my kids "aged out". I love to play outside - especially on XC skis, in a solo whitewater canoe or on my sailboat and I thoroughly enjoy teaching kids (and adults).
Our Teen, Family Hike to Mt Pemigewasset (Indian Head) in Franconia Notch is targeted toward teens ages 13 - 18 and their parents, though all are welcome. Family Outings is trying to encourage more teen participation and this hike or possibly hike/snowshoe combo, weather and conditions dependent, is designed to do that.
I'm am a 4 season hiker with 6 winter 4000 footers, and two winter camping workshop to my credit.
