    crazyguyonabike.com: Bicycle Touring: A place for bicycle tourists and their journals has some good bikepacking journals. Mostly road touring though. Great reports though. Bikepacking.net has a decent forum as well.

    Thanks for the shout-out guys! We're still working on rebuilding the site after losing most of it to internet hackers a few months back... there's a long way to go, but we've got some of the important stuff back up on there.

    Another blog: gypsy by trade | Ridin' bikes and travelin' light.

    Nick has really found his voice (ha! I've always wanted to say that!) and his blog is both enjoyable and informative.

    I can lose hours following links on there.

    Thanks for the plug, mattvogt7! Next post - probably - is an overnight on the AZT a couple weeks ago. That should fit the theme here. Must... find... time...

    I like reading people's blogs/tour reports. I've collected quite a few links on the right side of my blog at THELAZYRANDONNEUR.COM . My own bikepacking exploits are on the tame side compared to the links already posted, but there are a few reports on my blog if you search for "CDN GDR" and "Gravel Pimp".

    I've added a couple new links to my archives thanks to the posts above...
    Safe riding,

    Glad to see you are up and running again. I was starting to despair when I couldn't access the site for as long time. The new site looks great.

    Thanks for the kind words, and mentioning mine as well.

    I guess I should say that last year I started to revive the ACA 'bikepacker' thread, but a lot of my content was, for various reasons, not suitable for Adventure Cycling. Which is why I started my own blog.

    Having said that I do have some post which will be featured over there in the next few months.

    By the way, I just discovered Google Reader for organizing all of these blogs. It works really well!
