Great that BPL is creating a print magazine but I'm disappointed that many of the articles will not be included on the website, particularly how to and actual trips. The last few months of the website seem to have almost exclusively featured reviews. Reviews are nice but I would also like to see some more variety on the website! Thanks.

Trip reports/trail reviews please! on 04/19/2005 10:54:34 MDT Print View

I agree. Trip reports and photos/video are just the "kick in the pants" you need some times to make plans to get out and explore new areas.

Has the Backpacking Light Magazine started to ship?

Backpacking Light Magazine Ship Status on 05/18/2005 00:06:58 MDT Print View

The recent issue shipped first week of may, bulk mail, 1-3 weeks to delivery. I've started getting reports of people getting them, so they seem to be trickling in to mailboxes.

Focus on reviews of late @ the website has been a function of some big categories that we needed to get caught up on, hence the skew towards reviews. more features / techniques / trip reports are in the docker and on the way on the online side.
