The Hiking Forum Message Board, also called the Hiking Forums, Hiking Bulletin Board, and Hiking Discussion Group, is an excellent place for outdoor gear discussion and to exchange info with experienced backcountry persons who, frankly, are tired of carrying the kitchen sink into the backcountry. The Hiking Light discussion group has many lightweight topics and ultralight topics for both the hiking light crowd as well as hikers, in general. Many of the hikers who frequent the hiking boards are already dedicated ultralight hikers with much knowledge and wisdom to share in the hiking forums, hiking message board, and hiker's discussion groups related to reducing pack weight, including the option of making your own hiking gear. To that end, there is a hiking chat forum appropriately named "Make Your Own Gear". There is also a hiking discussion message forum for buying and selling new & used outdoor gear.
As well as Hiking Light forums, there are hiking forums with subjects ranging from backcountry cuisine, homemade outdoor gear, outdoor gear bulletin board, private messages, backpacking stories, kids forum for kid's gear talk and for parents who want to take their children into the backcountry. There are also experiences of many backcountry travelers who have posted their hiking and backpacking stories and a hiking forum on backcountry tips.
We hope you enjoy your time with us here and please stick around !!!!!!
