Backpackingbongos is four today

by backpackingbongos

I just received a message from WordPress to tell me that it is four years to the day that I started this blog.  To me that’s pretty amazing considering my attention span.  I can’t really remember what motivated me to start blogging back then.  Outdoor blogs were still pretty thin on the ground, the numbers rocketing over the past couple of years.

I don’t think my style has changed much, maybe less gear related stuff.  Over the last year or so I have found gear increasingly boring to write about.  Exploring the wild places is what gives me a buzz so that is the content you get, like it or not!  I hope that people find these trip reports interesting and useful, the library of which is growing.  If you click the ‘Trip reports – backpacking’ and ‘Trip reports – day walks’ they are all neatly arranged into areas.

Anyway, thanks for reading and commenting the last few years. Without my regulars I would have given up a long time ago.

May our paths cross in the wildest, remotest and most desolate places!
