The Next Best Thing To Being On The Trail

If you can't be actually backpacking, the next best thing is reading about it. Heck, given the fact that when you're reading about it you're not exhausted, freezing and schleping up endless switchbacks, reading about life on the trail may even be more fun.

I recently came across SectionHiker.com, and I'm impressed. It's site with a lightweight backpacking focus -- a philosophy I buy into in a major way. (Just ask Shira and my brother - they may say I've bought into it a bit too much.)

If you're not yet sold on lightweight backpacking, then this site serves as excellent propaganda. If you are sold, I find the stories to be especially interesting sources for gear ideas.

Have any outdoor sites to recommend? I'd love to hear about them - drop me your suggestions in the comments.
