I grew up in Dayton and now live in New Mexico. Wish there was a group like this when I lived there! Looks like you are very active and I just wanted to keep "tabs" on what was going on back there (lol)!
I enjoy both but being an organizer seems to take up a lot of your free time (lol) so I don't day hike nearly as much as I should these days.
I like getting out "away from it all" and the sense of adventure. I also really enjoy meeting all the new people on the trips.
I enjoyed Caesar's Creek and Englewood Metro Park. Also did a ton of hiking at Cox Arboretum because my parents house bordered this park.
Red River Gorge area (Daniel Boone NF) and Monongahela NF (specifically Dolly Sods) in West Virginia. Zaleski SF was my favorite within the state.

Thanks for the tip, Bob. We went a few weeks ago and had a little trouble finding the turn into the lakes near the top, but it was beautiful.
Hi Bob, a group of us want to do the same Trampas Lakes backpacking trip you did in July 2009. I'm confused about where you camped. Friday night you camped near the Jack's Creek trailhead and Saturday night you camped 5.5 miles in, in between the 2 lakes? Water sources? Thanks much, michelle.tan71 at gmail
Hi Bob ..considering the trampas lake hike in Aug though is a ways from Las Cruces ...also would like to suggest hike in Aldo Leopold W/A for Oct this year ..access could be the railroad cyn trail west of emery pass and Hillsboro ...is area that so far has not been impacted by fire and is rugged and beautifull with abundant wildlife
I'm currently living near Dallas, Tx and exploring back packing and hiking in and around this state. I'm interested in NM area especially during the summer months. How do I obtain a release form?
Looking forward to exploring NM.
Nice to make your acquaintance! I have a question that you may be a good person to address this to. I recently bought a 0 F degree (REI Radiant) Sleeping bag with a compression rate of 3.5.
Purpose was to be able to do some Novice winter hikes and have the Cold nights covered. However I was not prepared for the Bulkiness of this. To be honest I think I may have over killed on the Temp rating, in your experience what have you used for backpacking in winter conditions? Thanks.
