We're in the top 100
November 08, 2011 01:52PM
We were delighted to get the news today that we've been honored as one of the top 100 backpacking sites on the web--which is pretty darn cool.

Here's the official wording: "Each year, Justbackpacksonline spends weeks reading and ranking hiking, backpacking, and camping blogs to determine who has the best content, advice, and ideas in the Bloggosphere.... we believe that you have proven yourself to be one of those."

Well yes, that's very nice. And we'll save you the long speech about how we never really dreamed we would get this award...because you know that the reason we do this is because we love backpacking, and we couldn't stop if we tried.

100 sure seems like an awful big number for such a specific topic. I would think top 25.

Hm. Don't want to burst any bubbles but I know a heck of a lot of backpackers that got 'selected' (including myself), even those without blogs. I think it was an attempt to drive traffic to a commerce website.

No bubbles burst at all....but people without blogs?

I did ask them for a list of the 100, so let's see what they say

No disrespect... but I never even heard about justbackpacksonline.
Then again... when I search ... I never heard about The Backcountry Forum either.

Chick-on said he got one too though:


Sounds like they want publicity for selling backpacks.
