Looking for mountaineering partner(s) in the WI area.
Went on a week trip this year to Colorado to climb five 14,000ft mountains with two people I met online (on 14ers website) with good success. I would like to plan more trips with people who live in the area and are interested in this fun hobby...don't have to be experienced, beginners welcome if fit and determined.
*** Planning a trip to Mexico November 2011 (as of right now I'm going solo, but others welcome to join me). The plan is to fly into Mexico City and climb volcanoes for 10-12days. Pico De Orizaba 18,409 ft (highest mountain in Mexico, 3rd highest mountain in North America) is the goal but want to bag other volcanoes to acclimatize to the altitude beforehand (La Malinche 14,646 ft and Iztaccihuatl 17,159 ft). If there is time I would also like to visit the Teotihuacan pyramids in Mexico City, said to be the some of the highest in the world.***
About me...My name is Rich, I'm 27 years old, I'm a Project Engineer for a construction company and also a paid on call Firefighter/EMT for my local fire dept. Love doing anything outdoors....hiking, kayaking, soccer, mountaineering, working out, fishing, boating, motorcycles, I'm definitely an adrenaline junkie lol.
Well if any of this interests you and you would like to make plans on a trip or even just something local such as hiking/kayaking at devils lake, etc....let me know and we could possibly work something out :)
