looking for pensioner-type partners

I am looking for middle aged partners to do bi-weekly trail outings from November through June, hoping to get in 250-300 km. during that time.

I live in Canada and hope to hike in Israel from about the middle of December for a week or so...not yet sure of exact dates because I'm also in touch with Nefesh b'Nefesh about aliyah, and I know people I'd like to visit in various locations.
However, I can tell you that 6 days ago I hiked 17 km of forest trail with various ups and downs and a fair amount of tree roots and rocks in 5 hours, while packing 11 kg (next time out I'm going for 15 kg). I am definitely 67 years old, but I'm doing my best to get into better shape.

Maybe this could fit in with your plans? I would love to hike the harder southern trail, ideally from Eilat to Mitzpe Ramon over a couple of weeks, but if least it's in Israel.

 Seems that you are Okay  

hiking along the INT from Sunday, May 28th until Friday, June 2nd, excluding Wednesday, May 31 (shavuot).   I started hiking the trail 9 years ago and have been doing segments during visits to israel.  I want to hike from Har Carbolet to Mitzpe Rimon (excluding a short segment near sde boker) and, as time permits, a section after mitzpe rimon.   I am happy to pay for all logistic help (including places to sleep other than the trail, if preferred), but i don't want to hike alone.   I am a 50 something teacher from Washington DC.   accomplished hiker, although not particularly fast.   my email address is  thank you.
