Kelty Internal Frame, can't remember the model number
It provides me with an opportunity to bond with my dogs while exploring the spectacular variety of natural phenomenon on this beautiful planet. Also, it affords me an oppotunity to relax and de-stress:)
I consider myself an intermediate backpacker because I have knee issues that interfere with my hiking abilities (uphill can be torture for me). However, I have hiked/backpacked for years, both solo and in groups, and can walk many miles/hours downhill or on trails with very little steep elevation gains. Uphill I can do, it just takes me a little longer than normal...
I haven't backpacked here yet, so I can't wait to find my new favorite place!!!

I just moved to Albuquerque and I'm very excited to explore the outdoor areas around here! I've been backpacking since I was a small child, and I'm excited to meet some other like-minded outdoor enthusiasts!
