After hearing about this forum from a couple of members that are active on BPL I decided to check it out. Glad to be here and look forward to learning more. I do the ultralight thing usually, sometimes just lightweight. For the last eight years I have been organizing the largest gathering of fans of ultralight equipment and techniques at a gathering of what has been called the G.G.G. or gathering of gear geeks. A somewhat unfortunate name that has stuck and we all now embrace. I have been a member of the US forum/website BPL since it's inception in the early naughts. Last trip to the UK was in '76, when I was nine. Long overdue for a return visit.
