U.S. Trail Walker.com is a website developed to give backpackers a forum to discuss all ideas and questions about backpacking. Check it out, a great way to learn from others. No question is considered silly, we all started knowing very little. I learned so much about how to backpack from similar forums that aren’t in existence anymore.
