The pack I usually carry is a (brand/model)?

Lowe Alpine Hyperlite or a GoLite

I enjoy backpacking because?

Of the sense of "adventure" and being able to "get away from it all" even for short periods of time!

I consider myself a (beginner, intermediate or advanced) backpacker?

Advanced

My favorite place to backpack & hike in NM is?

There's a lot of great places and it's a little hard to choose, but probably Horseshoe and Serpent Lakes, Nambe Lake, Cruces Basin, Valle Vidal, San Pedro Parks, and..................

My favorite piece of gear is?

My Big Agnes sleeping pad! Not very exciting but it was the best purchase I've made since it allows me to get a good nights sleep.

Introduction

Hi Everyone! I started this group so that backpackers from New Mexico (and other states) could get together for trips, etc. We're now starting our 8th season and I'm glad I did! Lot's of great people and great trips!

What Bob F is saying about this Meetup Group

This is a really diverse group of unbelievably friendly people who all have at least one thing in common, having a good time backpacking!
