View Full Version : Hello!

I hope that this is the correct forum for this. I just wanted to take a moment and say hello.

I have lurked off and on here on Whiteblaze for the last few years and that now would be a good time to actually start participating.

I did quite a lot of backpacking back in when I was a teenager and always loved it, though other interests and hobbies came along and occupied my time. However I have always had a love for backpacking and feel that now is as good a time as any to get back into it.

I look forward to getting to know folks on Whiteblaze. I also look forward to learning more about the gear, especially since it looks like technology has changed a few things along the way (and others remain the same).

By the way, my name is Vince, from Williamsburg, Virginia and I work as a blacksmith.

I prolly saw you at Wburg. Cool job.

Welcome to WB.

I did a lot of hiking as a kid. It kicked my ass when I started again in my 40s. I've finally got my pack weight down to 30 lbs wth 5 days of food and I'm still working on lowering it.
