Well, i didnt see a new user intro place here...so im sayin Hello in this forum
Im torrey and i live in palm springs and I hike and run about 45-50 miles a week out here in coachella valley. I only know one person who does that much trail running/hiking, so I joined this sight in hopes of meeting more hikers n runners. I hike and run 5 or 6 days a week. On my easy days i only do 7 or 8 miles in bout 90 minutes, but 1 or 2 times a week I go 16-20 in bout 5-7 hrs. hope to meet and get to hike with some of you. I nomally am on south lykken on the easy days, or behind murray peak, or do bump n grind to cross to hop along to schey to art smith to dunn and back on a long day. or art smith to/across dunn to hahn buena vista to fern to vons for my 20+ days.
I also hit up the la quinta cove area sometimes, and do ramon to top of tram...but i dont picnic on that, my usual time is 6-6 1/2 hrs. to top.....the reason im posting how much i do and time is because i want to meet other hikers who are serious and wont...um...well, wana stop/act like its a nature walk....i say this because ive tried other hiking sites and met up with people...but theyve been really slow or only wanted to do 2-5 miles....I want to meet fun trail runners n hikers who think going 16 miles in 5 hrs is FUN, not hard, lol,
