Welcome, Mark! Spark is an AWESOME place to find motivation and support, as well as information about backpacking! Check out the threads in the hiking team and also check out some teams specifically geared towards backpacking. Happy sparking! 1395 days ago
You can find motivation and inspiration from everyone here, even those that are struggling (because you know how they feel!!) Welcome new people, Join teams, blog, join challenges, blog, be excited, blog. And did I mention: blog? The future fabulous you will want to look back at your journey and will want to encourage others!! When the excitement wanes (it WILL!!) put down your pom poms and lurk in the background, (but don't leave and don't do too much damage) and wait for the tide to turn...pick up your oars and keep rowing.
You can do this!!
