Great to see that BPL list of classic BPL articles. this should be a great resource for beginners and the rest of us that are trying to tweak our ger/techniques. I would like to see included:
- Backpacking 101 -- the longer version
- Winter Footwear

Anyone see other articles missing?

How about,
Winter backpacking comfort: lightweight gear and techniques for shelter,clothing, and sleep systems

clothing and sleep systems for mountain hiking

SUL breaking the five pound barrier.

I'm sure there are more out there.

The BPL Classics list is hosted on the wiki - so you can add articles to the list yourself. Feel free to go ahead and do that.

Will entering a search on the BPL site link to Wiki content? Or do I now need to try a search in two different locations. I have not used Wiki before(still), so excuse me if this is a dumb question. Ahh technology. Now I know how my grandparents could not program the VCR. LOL!
