Congrats and looking forward to the reviews and articles that you will be bringing in the months to come.

Also, wanted to thank everyone at BPL for giving a glimpse of the changes to come, to see that you are addressing the concerns that came up in the forums and with the survey you sent out.

Really excited to see BPL moving forward and becoming better for all of us.

Going to be a great year!

If you start doing podcasts again, please include a text transcript. I can read way faster than you can talk, and text can be searched. Thanks!

Why not also put the podcasts back on the site that you already have produced.There is alot of good content for new BPL visitors.

Congratulations DLB! The world of backpacking light or otherwise will never be (re)viewed the same again.

+2 (or wherever we are now) on providing text for podcasts. Some of us prefer reading to listening and taking (probably inaccurate) notes! For many of us, reading is faster. As mentioned, having the text lets us search later, too. Let's have the best of both worlds!

Excellent news, Chris! I'm really looking forward to 'Exploration of Other Modes of Backcountry Travel'. I hope you will continue and/or expand BPL's coverage of snowshoes (and snowshoeing).

Chris, good for you. I like the "long-term test drive" idea and the posting about the equipment as it is used. Really like many of the other ideas as well and I hope that all at BPL will get behind them and produce some stellar content. I know that you all have a lot to give. Can't wait to start receiving it.
