I want to wish everyone a Happy Hiking New Year. Thank you to everyone for supporting thebackpacker.tv. The site has come along way in a short period of time. Hope you get as much from this site, as I get sharing it with you.

Happy Hiking New Year

We launched in March of 2009 and we have taken over 20,000 page views, and are growing each month. Our Membership is growing as well as our presence on Google.

Some people to thank that helped make our site a success. Richard Curry from Tek-works.com that helped merge two WordPress Plugins to make our community better. Also, the guys at Yellow Swordfish for making a killer forums plugin. Most of all, I want to thank all of our Members for support thebackpacker.tv. Thank you. Spread the word.

In 2009 we will be looking for trail reports specifically for thebackpacker.tv We will also be putting together our first “Backpacking Video Contest”. Looking to give away some cool prizes, so spread the word, and start putting your “video masterpiece” together.

Also in 2009, I hope to share some much more exciting experiences from the backcountry. Until then, see you on the Trail.

Feel free to contact me at any time. Started Backpacking in 2003 and have never looked back. My all time favorite hike was last April when I hiked the Sycamore Wilderness Canyon. No trails, no signs, just wilderness and a 3,000 foot steep drop into the Canyon. I ran out of water my third day. Why? There was no water in the Canyon. You can check out my video on the "backpacker.tv" page. Thanks for dropping by.
