    on Jun 21, 2012.

  • New York Backpackers

     First time with the club. Fun group of people. The organizers perhaps could step up a little more, as it felt fairly leaderless and "you're on your own." But maybe that's how you guys roll, now I know. 

    on Jun 21, 2012.

    on Apr 23, 2012.

  • New York Backpackers

     Well, I am organizing an event and it seems that a good number of people belonging to this group sign up for events with no intentions of ever going. They then either change their RSVP at the last minute or just dont show. I guess my question is, whats the point? 

    on Apr 18, 2012.

  • New York Backpackers

     What an awesome group of fun people! 

    on Oct 14, 2010.

  • New York Backpackers

     If you're new to the group, do a day hike before trying a multi-day backpacking outing. The multi-day trips are much tougher. Be sure you are properly equipped and DON'T EVER FORGET YOUR FLASHLIGHT, especially if Francisco is leading. If you have the stamina and experience, it's great fun! The group has great people, too. I always meet someone fascinating. Just remember that winter AND spring outings can involve hiking on ice and slippery snow, which persists on the trails later into the year than you might think. Bring MICROSPIKES (or crampons) for ice and snow for all such occasions. We didn't think we'd need them for a March 30-April 1 trip, but they would've helped tremendously. And gaiters would've made an April 27-29 trip much more successful. Still, even the problematic trips are great fun.

     Fun People and fun trips! 

    on Jul 26, 2010.

  • New York Backpackers

     It is a great forum to meet people love the outdoors. Most of the trips I do are based on the suggestions of other people. Only because of the NY Backpackers, this "city kid" from Brooklyn has been to Mt. Washington in the winter, backpacking Glacier National Park, Snowboarding in NH, hiking in Hong Kong and too many other places/activities to recount. It is all thanks to the New Yorks Backpackers club as well as Joe, Francisco & Mike Popp for keeping the group strong & active.

     because we almost always have fun...except when we don't...which is almost never...which is usually cool anyway cause unexpected things happen and it makes life interesting...usually... 

    on Jun 28, 2010.

  • New York Backpackers

     Full of fun, adventurous, go-w/-the-flow people who love the outdoors-- I've always had a great time! Do beware however that events can be quite loosely organized, & most leaders here assume self-sufficiency & experience in the participants. So you'd better be able to take care of yourself on any hike or trip that you sign up for. Then enjoy the unexpected! 

    on Jun 28, 2010.

     Love the fact that there are no "type A" personalities in the group. We spend all week on schedules and doing things "by the book." It's great to have a plan but even better that we can all be flexible and not have to stick to it. 

    on Oct 15, 2007.

     Shack is a great organizer. I am new to the rafting event and he responded my tons of questions and taught me a lot about wilderness. The more you learn about it, the more you enjoy and appreciate the beauty of nature.

     These folks very well know the art of overcoming the sweet pain of a nice hike with a little sarcasm.
