Jess wouldn't mind a leadership roll in spirit, but would be flaky about the organizational bits and pieces. (Once the ball was rolling, she could handle it nicely - especially if climbing was involved, for which she would be sure to cross her t's and dot her i's...)
If there were someone much more detail-oriented in a "Club Secretary"-type position, Jess would be a great cheerleader-type club president.
Also, do we have anyone with a decent amount of expertise: survival and/or treatment skills? If no one has Survival skills, does that mean we usually stick to day-trips, or does Survival only figure into it if we are "roughing it" and trying to live off the land? Or is it covered under a separate skill?
Preferred posting rate: from avg of 1/day to 3/week. I prefer 1/day with a little leeway, and a 24 or 48 hr "zombie" trigger in combat (I.e. w/ no post in a certain amount of time, the GM either has you stand in the corner and do nothing, or operates you as an NPC)
As for names: will throw out some ideas later today (must have moar coffee first!)
Although this just occurred to me (a bit twisted to get the acronym)
Cascadia Hiking Organization of Portland (CHOP)
...or "...of Northern Oregon" (CHONO)
(edit - to be clear: prefer 1/day posting rate, but am flexible, and will on occasion not be able to hit that b/c of wildly variable work hours)
