I know I'm one of the newer members here and well under the experience level of most others. However I have to say I like this forum and most of the post I've read. The ones I don't like I just stop reading. I think g2d has a point, it's just not a valid one by most standards.
I am not a wilderness tripper, but I do hope to be one day. Right now I have work, kids, and other things that keep me from disappearing into the "wilderness" for a month in my canoe. What I can do are weekend trips. On these trips I can practice good habits for future wilderness trips like packing for a week to practice with the load, carrying bear spray and securing my barrel to a tree even though the odds are slim I'll encounter a bear near DC.
I look to this forum for advice on trips, wether its a week on the Bloodvien river that I'd like to do in the next five years, or a weekend on the james that I'll do this weekend.
