Just wondering why there are no places to talk about places to travel, and general skills like "how to start a fire".

There is:

http://forums.backpacker.com/cgi-bin/forums/ikonboard.cgi?act=SC;c=3

http://forums.backpacker.com/cgi-bin....2107219

Hopefully you don't combine them all: How do I put out a fire I started in the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest?

How strange. The bookmark I've been using since I found this forum doesn't list those pages. Time to update.

In the past others have asked for sections in the forums on things like Selling Gear and other topics and basically the server for this  forum can't support it and there seems to be no interest in BPs part to change things here on the fourms

It is what it is and we live with it for the value of the opinions available here.

Besides, if we had a Gear For Sale forum I might not go there unless I actually NEEDED something.
If someone lists gear for sale here I look at it and sometimes I decide I WANT it, even if need is not in the picture at all.
Gear whores are like that.  Yeah, they are.   :)

Starting a fire is a way overrated skill.  Putting one out after either you or one of your backpacking partners has caught on fire is a much more useful skill to learn.
