Bob F



Sandia Park, NM
Hometown: Dayton, Ohio

Organizer since:

June 18, 2007


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

The North Face Banchee 50

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?


My favorite place to backpack & hike in NM is?

There's a lot of great places and it's hard to choose, but probably the Serpent and Horse Shoe Lakes area in the Northern Pecos Wilderness.

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.


Hi Everyone! I started this group so that backpackers from New Mexico (and other states) could get together for trips, etc. We're now in our 11th season and I'm glad I did! Lot's of great people and great trips!
