Hi everybody!
I was using this site for about 2 months before getting registered here.
I'm a hiker from 12 years old. That was the first time when I was traveling with my family and friends.
There was made an occasion when adults couldn't find a way to get back to the camp. Then the kids, who remember the road, lead the group to the beginning of our way. I know, that it looks a bit scary, but you just feel fun in your teens.
Since that time I like to travel on foot a lot.

Welcome. We here in the Pacific Northwest have been reading a lot about the war in Ukraine where you live, and it sounds very traumatic. It seems amazing to me you found the time to be interested in this web site about hiking in (mostly) Oregon. Have you visited our area or hiked here before?

Thank you!
My mother is from Oregon, while my father is from Kyiv :)
So I lived both in US and Ukraine.
When the war went to this phase I had no time to think much. Just went volunteering a lot.
Besides these ruzzian murderers killed my friend among the other people in Bucha.

Did you ever read Erich Maria Remarque's novels?
Life during the war is quite the same as he described.
It was difficult to accept the fact of the invasion. However, we do our best to fight for our chance to live as we want.

I traveled a lot. So now I see how beautiful Ukraine is.
Thank you for the opportunity to write all of this..

terrible what's happening in Ukraine

I hope that eventually things turn around even though it doesn't look really hopeful
