Backcountry Attitude - Outdoor Recreation Home >> Site News
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 www.backcountryattitude.com address.
The site is now over 2 years old on the new domain and I'm still creating some new backpacking related content. The release date should be around June 2012. 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.
