Am I Missing Something?

While I try to be good about keeping up with good outdoor blogs, there are so many it's impossible to not let some slip through the cracks.  I'm trying to update my blog roll and need your help.  Please let me know if you have a blog (or know of a good one) that's not currently in my blog roll.  I will add it to the list (as long as it's about backpacking and of good quality).  Just leave a reply to this post with the URL.

Jason, it's not updated frequently but Laufbursche is a German Cottage Manufacturer, and if you haven't seen/touched/used his packs you are seriously missing out. He is an architect by training and perfectionist. I'm in no way associated but a user of 2 of his packs.
here is the url:

I'll give myself a shameless plug:

And +1 on Laufbursche.

I will put a plug in for my blog: http://www.adventureinprogress.com which has a lot of content on family backpacking.

If Mark did it...

http://korpijaakko.wordpress.com

About all walks of outdoor life. Atm the focus is on my upcoming three-week skiing expedition to Svalbard but after that I'll shift toward lightweight backpacking, paddling and stuff...

Gavin Macfie said...

Some great suggestions above.

I keep 57 Degrees North, a travel and outdoor blog from the Highlands of Scotland.

http://gavinmacfie.blogspot.com/

Updated weekly with stunning photos, trip reports and original pieces about Scottish outdoor life and occassional forays farther afield.

I'm here already! Hope all's well in your neck o' the woods, Jason. Can't wait to get out into the woods again soon... Any good trips planned for yourself?
Cheers,

Jason Klass said...

Thanks everybody for the great suggestions. I put most of in the blog roll (it's getting a little long now).

Mungo-
Nope, nothing planned any time soon. My wife and I just moved into a new house this weekend and I've got my work cut out for me for the next few weeks. The good news is that now I've got my own gear room! (Video soon).

Thanks for all the great content and suggestions! The product reviews and tips are extremely helpful. I've tried to incorporate some products on our site, but please suggest any other items or products you think we need for camping and other outdoor adventure.

The help is much appreciated, thanks!

Mine is not unique, but I try to fill in a few holes with gear reviews and information other women might be interested in as well as my DYI projects and trip reports. I am still tweaking the presentation, but I think it is easy to follow. Thanks much for checking it out. Pat

I am an Aussie, so the content is a little different in terms of environment and advice.

First I didn't see Hike, Bike, Dale which is one of my favorites.

Marty said...

I see someone posted it earlier but give this guy a try: http://blackwoodspress.com/blog/
Found him the other day on the ADZPCTKO site. Sent you a email about him, but then found this thread. Sorry for the double up..

markswalkingblog said...

Jason, I have not been on your blog for awhile, but always a good source of info. I have subscribed to your blog to keep up today.
Not sure you know my blog in the UK.
Just in case you have not seen it before you can find it at
http://markswalkingblog.wordpress.com/
All the best
Mark

John Roan said...

Jason,
My little blog www.mountainultralight.com is about my passion for u/l backpacking, my crazy MYOG ideas (many of which don't work out as planned), and wilderness trips with family and friends.
Thanks,
John

My blog isn't strictly about backpacking, so it's probably not what you're looking for, but I do write about my adventures exploring the Colorado wilderness as a novice backpacker and the lessons I learn along the way on my blog http://hikinghumanist.com/
but, as I said, I'm a newbie so my trips so far are not particularly impressive, and I also occasionally post about non-outdoors related things like animal training as well as humanist topics. So, probably not what you're looking for, exactly.

Hey - I just published a book, and I created a blog to help promote it.

Title:
ULTRALIGHT BACKPACKIN' TIPS

LINK:
http://ultralightbackpackintips.blogspot.com/

Have you read the book yet? It seems like it would be a good fit for this site.

Mike C!

Jason Klass said...

Hi Mike,

I haven't read your new book but I read your backpacking book. Looking forward to reading this one!
