    Hi all

    I've been a registered member and lurker for some time, but haven't got around to introduce myself yet.

    I guess you could call my wife and I occasional hikers, as our hiking activities have been sporadic but also consistent throughout the years.

    We're in the process of lightening the load, from the 30+ kg pack I hauled from Abisko to Kebnekaise when the kids where small, to something more manageable now that we only have to carry our own kit.

    Over the last 25 years we've hiked in Canada, Iceland, Sweden, Norway and have recently fallen in love with Spain and the Pyrenees. Our hiking trips have usually been fairly short with only a few stretching for more than a week, and more about the smiles than the miles.

    I really enjoy reading the forums on trek-lite, and the way trek-liter's manages to focus on the purpose of lightening the load rather than being obsessive and judgmental.

    Cheers
    Frank

    Hey Frank!:thumbsup:

    "rather than being obsessive and judgemental" :biggrin:

    Reckon your ironical style will fit right in here. :)

    But surely not yet another 'Silent wife' of trek-lite...?

    Very much looking forward to hearing from 'The Missus' - She herself must have garnered lots of experience, in many areas, from all your fantastic trips, which could be shared with us all here, not to mention all the sage advice she could benefit from... :geek:
