Legally Speaking

I like to think I'm a friendly, social kind of guy.  Most people I know would probably agree, although Linda would sometimes argue I don't always wake up in my 'happy place'.  Honestly, I'd like nothing more than to get to know everyone who is thinking about taking one of the hikes on this website, so that I could better assist them in ensuring a great experience on their visit to Boulder.  Perhaps some day I can quit my day job and do that.  Alas, not today.  But, even if I could quit my day job and become the Walmart Greeter of the Front Range, the facts are I'm not an expert on hiking, nor am I a doctor, MD or otherwise.  At times I still pick hikes beyond my own abilities, and about as close as I come to practicing medicine is taking a couple of Motrin when I get back from said hikes.  Linda would argue I'm the worst patient on the face of the earth.  I whine a lot.  And, while I'm sure everyone who visits this site has the self-awareness to know if they should hike based on their current health, would certainly consult their physician if in doubt, and understands that if a trail is not suited for them they should stop, turn around, and return to the trailhead or closest microbrewery, we unfortunately live in a litigious society.  One that compels me communicate the following disclaimers:

We cool here?  I hope so.  Now let's go have some fun hiking!
