My name is Colleen and I'm new to the group. My five things are,
1.) I love to hike,
2.) I just finished my student teaching in third grade
3.) This Christmas I received a new pair of snowshoes from my husband (and I can't wait for it to snow enough for it to be worth using them)
4.) I got my BA in English
5.) I knit. A lot.

Keep it up!

Hi! I'm new to the team. 5 things about me. Well...I love the outdoors (of course), I'm afraid of heights. This can make hiking REALLY challenging sometimes. I enjoy reading--many different genres, I like to travel and I went back to school and started a new career in my early 50's.

It's a choice to be fit or fat.

Hi! My name is Ingeborg :)

5 things you should know about me:
- I'm from Amsterdam, so no mountains whatsoever out here for me, but I do love them. Whenever I went on vacation with my parents or by myself, it really made me feel great to see mountains.
- I'm 21 and studying to become a pedagogue (it's an English word, trust me.. ) which is kind of like a child psychologist.
- I love exercising, but sometimes I have a hard time getting up and going for it. Sometimes when the weather is dreadful I just love to listen to the sound of the rain on the roof :)
- I have a thing for socks. You know how "regular women" buy shoes all the time? For me, it's gotta be socks. They're so much cheaper, and every time I put on a funny/pretty pair, it brightens up my entire day!
- I am hypermobile (so flexible I sometimes dislocate stuff by accident) and *think* I have restless leg syndrom :p

Nice to be part of this team!

Welcome Droplet!
I from the West coast too - I've never seen a more beautiful place.
And I totally agree about the wind - it is an amazing force.

Hi, I'm new to this group, but not the outdoors.

Five things about me and the outdoors are:

1. How I love the smell of the forest, especially when it rains.
2. The vibrant greens that you get here on the West Coast; the ferns, the moss, the lichen.
3. People are by and large so friendly and happy to see each other.
4. I love animals and can stand for hours simply observing.
5. I'm awe of the wind: a summer's breeze, a blustery day in fall, even a wind warning or two.

"Today, a new sun rises for me; everything lives, everything is animated, everything seems to speak to me of my passion, everything invites me to cherish it."

-Anne De Lenclos

Hi I'm Andrea, and it sounds like I'm the oddball of this group!

1. I was a total couch potato as a kid. I remember reading in the library at recesses! But as an adult I grew to love the outdoors and now it's my favorite thing to do.

2. I live in the Pacific Northwest where people ordinarily dread the dark and rainy winters, but I'm actually looking forward to them so that I can go cross country skiing!

3. I have 2 little girls who motivate me in all kinds of ways.

4. But I'm also in my late 30s, my where did the years go?, and my husband's away at work a lot too.

5. I just joined the Mountaineers Club! And humbled that their "easy, slow" hikes are nearly 10 miles long... emoticon

Hi, my name is Julie and I have lots in common with some of you who have responded to this post. Here are 5 things about me...

I love the outdoors and as a kid I often slept outdoors, ate outdoors, and even played out in -30 degree celsius weather in a snow suit. I still do much of that now and also like walking in the rain.

I am originally from Canada (yeah, the cold part), but my husband is from Norway and we live there now.

I am a nurse, but not working now, just learning Norwegian.

We have 3 babies in heaven, 2 were boys.

I am 38 years old.

Hi!
I'm Amanda, five things about me:

I just turned 36, and am starting to notice I'm slowing down a bit (eeks, get moving!)

I have two children, ages 9, 6.

I am married to police officer, so I am home alone a lot.

I am a Nursing student.

I LOVE the outdoors, but for some reason can't get my tush out there!! (Working on that!) I used to spend ALL my time outside (to the point that I literally slept in a tent in my parents backyard when I was little)...I want to be that way again!

5 things you should kow about me...

I am 31 and still adjusting to the fact that I'm not a kid anymore - when did that happen?

I am married to a wonderful man who works on a tugboat, which means he's often away from home.

I am a stay-at-home mom to 3 crazy wild boys ages 8,6 and 5 - which you would think would allow me lots of outdoor time.

I live in Washington state north of Seattle and I am surrounded by trails, rivers, lakes, and mountains begging to be hiked, floated, kayaked, and skiied... There couldn't be a better place to live!

I love yoga and though I have been practicing for 4 years I still have not done yoga outside which was one of my original goals.
