I've been interested in hiking and backpacking since I was a kid. Recently I came across a few websites dealing with ultralight backpacking and was wondering if anyone else shared this interest. I'm not getting any younger so I was pretty glad to find ways of lightening my load. Here's one of the sites that got me started making and using my own ultralight gear. TrailDad Roy's and Flyin' Brian's Trail Adventure Page There are many sites out there dealing with ultra light gear and hiking, doing a google search using the words ultralight hiking backpacking should turn up all kinds of sites on the subject.
