When I first started Backcountrypost.com in 2007, I wanted to make it into a place where anyone could post their trip reports. But at the time it was almost too much work to figure out how to post my own. The dismal traffic the site received would also be a big hurdle. But in the last year, the site has exploded from a few hundred visitors per month to averaging more than 5,000 real visitors every month. So it is with great pleasure that I announce a new section to the site, the Backcountrypost Forum.
The Forum is a place where anyone can post their trip reports, photos, ask questions, learn about destinations or just kick back and chat with like-minded people. I strongly encourage each and every one of my readers to join. Even if you don’t want to post your trips, it’s a great way to be able to see other people’s great photos and learn about new places.
The Backcountrypost Blog will remain the same for the time being. As more people join the forum and post great content, I will feature that content here and eventually this home page will be nothing but a collection of the best trip reports from users all over the country.
Please help me get the forum off the ground by registering today. Just click here and then click “Sign Up” in the top right corner. The forum is new and therefore very small, but I believe with the traffic the blog sees, we’ll be able to get it off the ground and turn it into a great outdoors community that is true to the ideals of the backcountry. What do you have to lose?
