Hiking In The Bosque With Kangeaux

Possibly the most effective carrying tool you will ever need.



    My boys and I love hiking. This past weekend we decided to hike in a place near our home called the bosque. Bosque is Spanish for forest and that is what we call the small stretch of trees by the Rio Grande in New Mexico.The Albuquerque bosque is a wonderful place filled with trees, plants and walking trails. It is an oasis in our desert. Our only water source, the Rio Grande river runs through the bosque to, so it makes for a great place to see wildlife. This place has over 16 miles of walking and bike trails and one could travel from one end of the city to the other. Most of the time we explore this area with our bikes and stay on the paths but, this time,  we decided to explore the area beyond the bike paths. The weather is now hot here in the desert so we always have to carry a bottle of water with us. My boys complain about having to carry their water as they want their hands free. We have tried using backpacks for our water but those make you feel hotter. I have finally found the solution to carrying water with us and it is a hands-free one.



 The Walkabout by Kangeaux Outdoors is a cool carrying tool that makes bringing along a bottle of water easy. My boys love that they can carry their water hands-free and have their hands available for climbing and picking up things. I love that their water bottles don't get left behind as they are strapped onto them. So no more setting them  down and forgetting them. These cool straps have many other uses and also come with a paracord. The carabiner clip makes it easy to attach to a belt loop or backpack. The carry strap holds things tight with velcro and adjusts to fit a lot of everyday items like phones, water bottles, sunscreen, sunglasses, and keys. When this awesome tool is not being used, just stuff it into it's included case, for your next adventure. Now you can enjoy nature and not worry about your stuff.


My boys and I had a fun time checking out the bosque. We walked for several miles and saw a lot of nature. The Rio Grand river was a great place to see some fish and frogs. My boys loved being able to walk in the shade of the trees. They also found lots of sticks to play with.

My boys and I also saw these cool carvings in trees that were damaged by a fire ten years ago. This fire was caused a campfire that was started by a homeless person who was living in the bosque. The campfire got out of control and burned many acres of the bosque. Here in the desert of Albuquerque, campfires are not allowed as it is so dry here. I love that the city was able to restore this part of the bosque with these cool carvings.


Just look at different ways people use the Kangeaux! This strap will also be great for my many conferences that I have planned for this year. That way I can attach my water bottle to my bag and have my hands free to explore the sponsor booths. I also don't have to worry about my papers, that are in my bag, getting wet as my water bottle will be on the outside and easy to find. What sort of adventures would the Kangeaux Walkabout join you on? 
What items would you attach to the  strong strap?

  19. Looks like a very nice place to visit. The Kangeaux tool is something I'd definitely get even though I don't take trips like these, because I can't tell you how many papers I've ruined inside my purse because I had to put a bottle in there. Very handy tool to have! :)
