e.g. # trips you take per year, longest multi-day trip that you've done, what kind of hiker are you, typical mileage, do friends call on you to plan trips...?
e.g. I want to travel lighter... navigate off trail... guide my own trips in the future... I have a selection bias toward applicants who want to become trip leaders in the future. Please stay truthful. :)
I use this question to determine group dynamics and fit. How serious should you be with your answers? Well, between your dating profile and a college application. e.g. How would a new friend describe you? How about an old friend? Any other skills or fun things you want to teach or learn from the group?
