    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.

    Hi Ken.
    Welcome
    It's pretty Gear Geeky here so you should feel comfortable.

    Hi Ken and welcome.

    I've not heard of the G.G.G. before, just checked out the 8th Gathering.

    If you like a bit of El Nino weather we've still got plenty of UK rain to share with visitors!

    Cheers.
