Discussion in 'New Mexico' started by koolaidman505, Jun 8, 2011.
good to meet you Mario Welcome to the fire.
I saw the title of this thread and thought it was about the Democrat's amnesty bill.
I just saw an article in Texas about the Parks and Wildlife Officers having a "SWAT" type team that carries M-16's and wears full tactical gear and metal helmets. This will, no doubt come to New Mexico. The purpose they say is for Border Patrol support, and high risk warrant issuance, but I think it fits in with the overall militarization of law enforcement in our country.
score! I will be heading to hollowman in 3 months. looking forward to hunting and fishing again. if anyone knows some good places to live close to Alamogordo but not in the city let me know. I need to find a house. whoever is close to the area hit me up. I love to hunt and fish and do anything in the woods.
Try La Luz, just north of town.and its Holloman AFB

I grew up primitive in a place called Ocate, New Mecixo. Just the back road going into Angel Fire and Taos. Lived in Las Vegas to go to high school. Beautiful state. I now live in the land of OZ. Kansas has been my home, but I claim New Mexico. Our family goes way back in history to the start of Santa Fe.
Hello from Aztec.(originally Artesia) I found this web sight while looking at self made leather products. I run around with a guy that does some metal detecting and prospecting. I do a lot of hiking in the sandstone mesas of north west NM, and my job is there also, so I get to see a lot of places to explore on the weekends. Southern Colorado sees a lot of me in the summer when its hot here. I grew up in the desert of south east NM (sand dunes and misquites, Guadalupes around Caralsbad NM, Pecos river, and the mountains from Pinion NM to Capitan NM near Ruidoso). Southern Colorado feels like a seen from Feild and Stream magazine after growing up in the desert in southern NM. Although the ground gets harder the older I get we are planning on doing some overnighters this summer in the Weminuche wilderness around Silverton Colorado as soon as the snow melts
Alamogordo checking in! Anyone look at this thread anymore?
I do, I'm in Capitan
I just found this thread. I am in the East Mountains near Monzano National Forest.
I would enjoy organizing a bushcraft meet for our members.
I have 20 acres, (primitive camping available)a yurt onsite (available for discounted rental) and am about 15 minutes from the Monzano Wilderness and Cibola National Forest as an alternative.
What I am offering is a great remote location for a New Mexico meet.
New member in Tijeras. Any other bushcrafters still in this area?
Hello Everyone, Ron from Rio Rancho here enjoy a little fire sitting with some story swapping.
Welcome from Capitan
I'm just 30 minutes north of the Colorado border. If there are any future events in Northern New Mexico, I've love to attend!
Knock Knock to see if anybody is home. Seams like there are a lot of old posts here and no new ones. Trying to establish some connections of area Bushcrafters..
I'm taking a trip to New Mexico next week. We are doing some backpacking in Gila National Forest. Does anyone know if there are fire restrictions in place there?
Take a look at Gila National Forest Website to find the information but even better-call them https://www.fs.usda.gov/gila/
We'll have to see about doing a NM get together
Getting together is possibility-What do you suggest?
Old post but I am between Quemado and Pie Town, howdy to all.
I live back home in Maine now where I'm supposed to be (14 generations of ancestors' blood and bones amidst the mud and stones here)..., but after a year stationed in Ft. Greely, Alaska's Cold Regions Test Center, the Army sent me to photograph Test & Evaluation, R&D at White Sands Missile Range for 2.5years back 1987-89.
As a Scouter and Explorer Leader back then, I got a lot of dirt time in the deserts and Needles with the kids and my (then new) bride and I drove our trusty Justy up into the mountains above Alamogordo every chance we could trying to find pine trees to remind us of home and to escape the 112˚ dusty heat that New England Yankees are not made to endure.
Always wanted to see Maine and N. H. (Live Free or Die).
I live in Maine's western Hills about 15 min from "Live Free or Die" country. It is absolutely worth the visit.
Best rhubarb pie I ever had was in Pie Town but think the place is closed now. I have hunted a few times for deer and elk over the years west of Quemado. Nice and quiet between those two places.
WELCOME NEW MEXICANS
I couldn't resist that straight line.
