I have given up on the Backpacker Magazine website. I'm tired of the Circuit City (and other) pop-ups and the constantly changing, confusing format where the forums access is virtually a hide-and-seek game.
Too bad, it COULD be a nice website if the "Web Designers" were interested in making it useful instead of a "cute" advertising gimmick.
I still subscribe to the magazine but the website is trash.
"There are no comfortable backpacks. Some are just less uncomfortable than others."
Sorry you feel that way. It really is a great forum over there. I have a pop-up blocker so I never see the ads. Also, I have a direct link to the forum bookmarked so I don't have to go to the main site to access the forums.

Yeah. I don't minding surfing but having to become technicaly savy to navigate the site is something I don't have time for. Didn't someone say that computers would eliminate paper? I still like to acctually hold a book or magazine in my hands and just read. When I'm finished with each current issue, I pass em along to someone else.
