    Posters Information

    Every time a user posts, the information under there user photo Join Date, Location, Hammock, Insulation...etc. It might be neat to add Backpack to that to see what packs everyone has since its just as individual of a choice as the hammock...etc.

    Just an idea.
    Some of my freight hopping adventures on film over at my YouTube Channel... Oh and there is other stuff there as well!

    We have quite a few members here that don't backpack. Many are car campers, or backyard-only campers, or kayakers, etc.

    The existing profile options are limited to hammock-gear for that reason.
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy

    Thanks AS, cuz if you were to include backpacks, I would want a place for "boat!"
    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.

    I'm sure you can list all that info under your profile? Right?
    Just wouldn't show up on your daily posts. But if someone looked your profile info, then they could know all about you and your gear, and yes, canoebie, your boat.

    Or you could just start a thread like I did here.

    To carry the original idea just a little further...
    I agree it would be nice to have a lot more info in the profile.
    Backpack, stove, TQ, UQ, sleeping bag, boots, etc.
    It may be possible to do some statistics on the population to show what the members are using. If I was in the market for some new hiking boots, I could narrow it down to a short list based on the knowledge and experience of members of this forum.
