A fabulous wealth of information is available just a few clicks away on the World Wide Web. Here are a few we find useful Let us know about others you may come across.
Recreational Equipment Inc. has one of the widest selections of outdoor gear anywhere. If you live close to one of their retail stores, it's definitely worth a visit. And they have a terrific paper catalog. But the web site is superb, loaded with information about outdoor sports in general. It's a great place to search for information about specific areas to visit.
The Great Outdoor Recreation Pages (GORP) used to be a great source of information, from food recommendations and product reviews to how-to guides and maps. Unfortunately, they are now defunct. An explanation (and possible replacement) for this can be found at Kempoo, which has the story of what happened to GORP.
Lots more links to come.
