Ok, so I am about to take my 10 yr old daughter out on her first backpacking trip on the Foothills Trail (SC). She's very excited about the trip and even more excited to earn her trail name. Then she asks me if she we will be able to post messages on the Hammock Forums like I do. So I explain to her that the forum is mainly for adults but sometimes I do see "younger hangers" posting messages. She then asks me "Why don't they have a "Kid's Section"?
Well, I don't know how to really answer that question. Is this something that may be feasible? We read several trip reports with kids hanging and the response is overwhelming excitement from the HF readers. Why not have a section where kids can post about trips, gear, tips, etc. Might even be enjoyable for us to read and may even learn a thing or two from creative young minds.
