Hey folks, I just got back from 7 months of forcing myself not to look at the BPL forums. That includes a warm-up hike on the Appalachian Trail in March and April, then hiking the Pacific Crest Trail from ADZPCTKO until two days ago.
Now I'm back and getting used to the idea of having more consistent computer access, so I have two questions for everyone:
First, what did I miss? Any big news, events, new products, etc (related to UL backpacking, not world news or anything like that)? I'm going to start sorting through the feature articles back through March, but there's always a lot more than just that. I'd love to hear what folks here think of the past few months and what's been going on in the backpacking world.
Second, did I meet any of you? I know I saw Ben Tang and Hoosierdaddy at kickoff, and I met Evan Chartier a few times on the PCT. My trailname is Guthook, so that's the name you would have heard if I met you.
That's all for now. I'm looking forward to getting back and seeing all the crazy ideas that get spread around on this forum again!
