    Greetings Lite-Trekkers!

    Learned about Trek-Lite from members who posted in my Backpacking Light forum. Impressed by your welcoming and knowledgeable community.

    Called to hiking by love of nature, following flora and fauna into their worlds to watch them up close. My wife and I love human-powered adventure, from 4-season hiking and backpacking to kayaking and canoeing, biking, skiing and snowshoeing. We’ve both traveled in the UK and Europe and enjoyed trails infused with history, archaeology, local foods and customs, a nice contrast to our big wilderness areas in the U.S.

    Looking forward to getting to know you, sharing experience and tips and hopefully trekking with you one day!

    And a first question...is there a way to insert photos directly without having to host them somewhere else?

    Welcome to the forum Ethan, good to have you here :)

    You would need to become a supporting member to be able to upload pictures directly to the forum server.
    As I’ve chosen to keep trek-lite ad free it’s the generous donations from members which keeps this place up and running, being able to upload is a perk of donating. Originally uploading was available to all but it quickly became clear that it wouldn’t be sustainable and bandwidth was being consumed too quickly.
    I don’t expect new members to donate but I hope you’ll stick around and enjoy the friendly atmosphere and maybe give it some further thought one day.
