Recently I was invited to join this forum about backpacking.  The thing I really liked about this one was that it was all Arkansas backpackers.  It really is an awesome site!  It has a wide range of forums on it that cover everything from lightweight backpacking, navigation, and opinions on gear to stories, hiking organizations, and forums dedicated to almost every major trail in Arkansas.  If you wnat to check it out the link is, and I encourage all of you to check it out and maybe join (espically if you are an Arkansas hiker).
