FAQ section

Hi everyone,

Since we often get new visitors to Trailspace and its forums, I thought it would be useful to add a FAQ section (thanks to Bill S for his suggestions on “Outdoor 101” over in the Feedback Forum). The FAQ section could obviously cover some of the more frequently asked questions we see on the forums (for example: “Should I seam seal my tent?” And “How do I get replacement parts for my tent/stove/whatnot?”). That way, instead of repeating the same basic info over and over, people could delve a bit deeper from the get-go.

As Dave makes the forum archives accessible I’ll be looking through them to see what questions occur the most and compiling the short answers to some of them. I’m also working on expanding the amount of gear guide content (i.e. How to choose a tent/backpack/boots) throughout the site.

If you have any suggestions on FAQ topics to include please feel free to post them here.

The most obvious is "Where do I get instructions for the tent I just bought at K-Mart/Wal-Mart?" There must be dozens of variations of this question in the backcountry forum.

Yeah, that one will probably be at the top of the list!
