Welcome @Flatlanderoutdoors! You're in a great spot to talk about all things hiking - routes, gear, stories and more. It looks like you have already found the hiking board, so we hope you come across some good information on those existing threads. Feel free to start one of your own with any questions you have or with any expertise you want to share as well!
With a username of flatlander and a love of the mountains, I have to ask - what area do you live in? I'm from New Orleans but live in Vermont, so the mix of the two sounds quite familiar!
Thanks for taking the time to introduce yourself. We're happy to have you here in the community!
