    Hey Tom :)

    Not sure you qualify as entirely new though, having been on a TL meet.

    Resistance however, is useless, you know it all makes sense :redface:

    Good Afternoon,
    I came across this forum a few days ago while wasting time. Been a poor track of weather lately so been wasting more, mainly on this site. Its sort of drawn me in....
    My name is Neil, I live in Shetland. I do extreme stonewalling, trailing off a bit now I'm a pensioner. Ive been a summer holiday mountain hiker, mostly Norway, for years. Lately into pilgrimages. Love to make/modify/ruin kit. Your site is brilliant, learning a lot here, because its more GB/Europe oriented.
    Must finish my tax return now....maybe...

    Introduction as a new person to trek-lite: Hi, I'm Andrew and for several months now it appears that I am getting interested in hiking, as I seem to go out walking more than I cycle, having been a keen cyclist for decades. I really enjoy my time out on my own either locally or in the Brecons or Black Mountains. My aim is to keep on day hiking with a view to this becoming two-day hikes, and so on. I have some basic hiking gear, a legacy of an organised trekking holiday several years ago, and am looking to kit myself out appropriately for my anticipated longer hikes and camping out. I have been really enjoying this website, and am especially drawn to things related to gear and myog. It takes me a very long time to make a purchase of any item of gear as I seem to have to obsessively research it before taking the plunge and buying, so reviews and opinions on here are very helpful. I am currently researching backpacks, especially ones that would be comfortable for a load up to 12kg and that do not soak up the water: the Exped Thunder has currently caught my attention.

    HI everyone, I'm Robert from Hamburg, Germany. What can I say - love hiking, especially in the UK (been to England, Wales and Scotland as well as the Isle of Man). There's a German hiking forum which I quite like and which has taught me the value of being in touch with a like-minded community. So I thought I might extend my gaze to an English-speaking hiker forum. And so here I am ...

    Been lurking around here for a time now and thought that it might be a good idea to introduce myself! Got interested in UL backpacking a few months ago, when I found r/ultralight and now trying to lighten my load. Currently got a pretty heavy baseweight (over 7kg for the big 4..), but looking forward to try quilts, packs with roll top & trekking pole supported tents in the future. I mostly do weekend hikes in southern Sweden where i live, but trying to go on at least one longer hike (~10days) every year - northern Sweden is a favourite! Hoping to do a light thru of kungsleden in the future. I also currently work in an outdoor store, so I'm kinda obsessed with gear..:)

    That's about it! Just ask if you want to know anything else

    Hey there,

    after lurking some time I wanted to introduce myself. My name is Adrian and I am from Germany. After a few hikes around the world I decided to drop off the typical beginning weight and start to go light. So I ended up here as well.

    But 3.74 - precision??? :rolleyes:

    A couple more decimal places at least, if you please :geek:

    That's how we roll round these parts

    - just so as you know ;)
