I am 31 years old and have been hiking in the Adirondacks for 19 years. I got started hiking in the Boy Scouts, and finished my 46 in high school along with two other hiking buddies. I moved to Virginia after college (SUNY Binghamton) to take a job with an environmental consulting company as a geologist.

I began to miss the Adirondacks and the work grew dull, so after 5 years in Virginia I moved back where I belong, in the Dacks. That was 3 years ago, and I still have yet to find a suitable long-term job, but I can't complain too much. My lack of real employment allows me to work every summer as a whitewater raft guide on the Hudson River, a job I absolutely love. I cannot imagine a better, more enjoyable job. Perhaps I could set up a gathering for this forum in the spring and we could go whitewater rafting. Since moving back to the Adirondacks I have also finished my Winter 46.

I also work part time at the Saratoga EMS, as well as at a local gym.

PS I'm still looking for work, so if you have any suggestions for an unemployed geologist, please PM me.
