A lifelong outdoorsman, Loeffler has hiked extensively, camping throughout the American West and Mexico, and has rafted many rivers. He has supported himself as a self-styled aural historian visiting and often living in native villages and academic and scientific communities conducting interviews and recording music and lore as well as diverse habitats. Using his recordings, he has produced about 400 documentary radio programs for Public Radio, and many sound collages for museums. He has written several books and scores of essays. He has donated his aural history archive to the New Mexico History Museum in Santa Fe.
