    What is your favorite Backpacking Forum?

    I love, love, love this forum and have learned so much. I wondered if any of you also have a favorite forum for Backpacking chit-chat? I found a lot when I did a Google search, but would appreciate hearing if you've found any of them to be as helpful as this site. Thanks

    HammockForums is the winner, hands down!
    I came here from www.backpackinglight.com which is where I practically lived before discovering to HF. It is the only other backpacking site that I found both worthwhile and friendly.

    Chip in the $10 for donating member status and a whole world of adjunct backpacking (non_hammock related) becomes available. All with the good nature of the hammock forums. That's my suggestion.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    Here of course. This is the friendliest place to be that fits my way of being in the outside world. Becoming a donating member opens up extra forums for you including backpacking and all of the extras one would want to learn about.

    Here @ HF, you are not a donating member and are missing out on a lot of info that is available. And if this thread stays towards backpacking, it too, will go to the donating members section, I think......RR

    I'll second (or third?) this... I've lurked on whiteblaze and backpackinglight but I've found the members here to be awesome. Granted, I didn't know about the donating members section when I donated.

    Here for sure. with the $10 donation, a whole new world opens up and allows access to almost too much information (not possible). Backpackinglight.com is also pretty good, but it has a different feel. HF is the friendliest site I've found on the interwebs.
