Site News and Updates


Site Announcements:

site workYes it's 2014 and I'm still around but have just been busy with other projects. I still have plans to release new content, as well as a few tweets now and again. Since most of the new pages are related and or interconnected I want to wait until I finish them all before releasing them. I've got 20 pages mostly finished with about 10 to 15 more still to be created. As always newly added pages will be posted here.

On 1/15/11 I finally got around to changing the site name from "Chris' Outdoor Recreation Resources" to "Backcountry Attitude" to better reflect what the site is about. Don't forget to change your bookmarks, etc to the correct address.
