Larry Hinds,

At Hinds & Hinds since 1971

I have always loved Taos for being quiet & peaceful. I was born & raised in this small town by Van & Glady’s Hinds, I have been a Taos local for 70 years.

The fresh air and climate are hard to beat. I have family along with life long friends here, and I have met many amazing people in my years of owning Storage Units.

Growing up near the Rio Grande & Taos Ski Valley skiing, fishing and rafting are some of the fondest memories I have.

This is home to me.

When I'm not in the office I enjoy restoring vintage cars, scooters and motors in my shop. Most times with a dog by side, I'm an animal lover and have a huge heart.

Taos is a great town with a wonderful climate, skiing, art and lots of opportunity for outdoor activities. Taos has been a home to me for over 30 years.  Whether a full time, or part time resident, Taoseños have a multitude of reasons to “store their stuff” and it has always been a pleasure to provide that service.

For me, the wide open spaces, my irreplaceable friends, growing up skiing at Taos Ski Valley are the tip of the iceberg for reasons to love it here.

New Mexico, and Taos in particular, has a special feeling that comes with it, this will forever be a place I call home.

I have always lived an active lifestyle but since losing my best friend/little sister in a car accident, I made a pact with myself to live my life to the fullest & love every day to the best of my ability.

When out and about: If I’m not in the water somewhere or at the gym, you can probably find me walking my dogs or hanging out with my friends. I love to travel to new destinations. Sewing and creating one of a kind garments is my hobby.

My Family and I moved here in the summer of 2014. Looking for a nice place to settle down and establish some roots for our Family.

When I'm not at work I'm a full time dad and just run around with my kids to all the places they need to go.

What actor would play you in a movie about your life: I would love it would be Sylvester Stallone as he is my all time favorite. And I want It played out like the movie Oscar.
