Due to a resurgence of spam activity, we've now got things locked down to the old "trusted forum member" group. If you're already a member of that group, you should be able to post with abandon. If you're not a member of that group, you still should be able to post, but it will go to a moderator for approval first. Once we've seen a legit post or two, we'll automatically add you to the trusted forum member group. If we don't catch it or you just want to proactively ask, that's fine too. Just email us at the above and we'll get it done. Thanks.

We are fortunate in this matter that your conduct will be your marker and, thus, your reputation. The conduct of others on this forum has been, and will continue to be, their marker, and thus, their reputation. In the west, a person invests in one's reputation carefully. - 112Papa

Greetings from another FNG! I have followed this site and the Hill Bros company for some time and my only complaint is it's costing me a lot of money! The knowledge and wisdom found here is unequaled; I've spent a day or two in the woods and reading this site is like a good book: can't put it down. Ken has cost me two GB axes and a Two Hawks Woodsman. Bought a great blade from Daniel Winkler after my last deployment; WK II Belt Knife. Scott and Evan have embedded some of the old with the best of the new in kit design; the kit bags are perfect! What I've enjoyed most of all is the comradeship and love of the outdoors and good kit that's readily apparent here. I don't do social media so if I post something weird, my bad; not intentional. Again thanks to all of you for your contributions. Chip

Welcome aboard, Chip!  I'm glad I was able to assist you on parting with some of your no doubt hard-earned money for some quality backcountry tools!  HAHA!  As I am sure you already know...it's a slippery slope that can result in many more purchases!  The good news is....you will be better off in the long run, and able to enjoy your outings into the mountains that much more.  Plus....if something really crazy happens in this world, you are a bit more prepared (without sounding like a "Doomsday Prepper").  Apparently, the big buzz-phrase now is "Thrival" versus survival.  That seems to make some sense to me....where you become the guy that has some decent kit and enjoy heading out into the high country not to just "gut it out", but rather to go properly kitted for the adventure at hand...in a way so that you can actually enjoy the journey instead of just dealing with it.  Certainly, why wouldn't we all opt for that?  

Glad to have yet another kindred spirit here among the HPG Forum folk!  Hope you had a great Christmas and are all set for a 2017 full of adventures away from the cities and out in the beautiful lands we have available to us!

Slàinte!

Ken

Another FNG here, but with a long, long history of spending time in the woods.

Annoying noob question: How the heck do I edit posts I've made here in the forum? I thought I was a pretty savvy internetter but I can't find any sort of edit option for the life of me.

Make sure you are signed in.  The edit button appears just below the title on the right of my screen.

Until you are on the trusted list you can't edit.

Gotcha.  I guess I'll just have to post some quality backwoods content then :)

New guy here.

I'm an old fart from New Hampshire, formerly of the Adirondacks, and a long time all season camper. I love exploring deep woods and abandoned places, by boot or paddle. I'm a writer (mysteries and short stories) who's always working on the next story.

I just bought the HOG chest rig, and am excited to try it out.

Another newb to HPG!

this post is both a test to see if I cab poost here, and to say that HPG is absolutely incredible.

I recently purchased the Recon kit bag for woods walks here in northern NH, in the Whites.  The bag has incredible construction, and while I am still 'learning' all the nuances of it, I'm sure that it will serve me well!  My next purchase will be your Tarahumara pack to replace a very well worn Condor pack.

I love this site!

Welcome aboard!  I used to do a lot of stuff in the Whites years ago while I was on a Mountain team with 10th SFG at Devens.  Beautiful country up there.

Just wanted to introduce myself. Didn't realize this thread was here until after I posted a reply in the firearms section concerning lever gun setup. Anyway...new to the HPG family with recent purchase of a Heavy Recon Kit Bag. LOVE IT!!! Will be my go to pack for general work around our farm in East TN when I need to have a firearm and a small amount of kit on my person. Avid hunter, fisherman (trout and inland saltwater), backpacker, camper, basically an outdoorsman. Love the woods and the outdoors regardless of where it might be. Also recently picked up a hobby of refurbishing old vintage axes and hatchets. 

Anyway, glad to be here and look forward to exploring the subjects on the forum and learning what I can from the Hill brothers and the rest of the members. NEVER STOP LEARNING!!! God bless and Happy New Year to everyone!

I moved from California to Western North Carolina last year when I retired after a 30-year career in defense R&D. It's taken a while to get settled in and synced into this lifestyle, especially after suffering with the high cost of living, insane politics, and growing congestion of Southern California. Life is so much simpler here. So far I've been hiking and deer hunting in the Southern Appalachians. Looking forward to some regular hunting, fishing and camping with my kids.

I just got my concealed handgun permit a last week. I needed a way to carry my pistol on the trail and when fishing. After a lot of searching for something that would be handy and general purpose I ended up ordering a Recon Kit Bag. Can't wait to try it out.

I feel right at home on this site. I'm planning to get a medium backpack in the spring - still making that decision.
