Gear manufacturer Mountain Hardwear has launched a brand new website called The Expedition Republic, which is essentially a social networking site for adventurers, explorers, climbers, mountaineers, or any type of outdoor enthusiast.
In addition to being a pretty slick outdoor community site, the website already has lots of great videos and photographs. Members have the opportunity to submit their own videos and pictures, publish blogs and participate in forums.
Members also have the opportunity to join groups. Since this website is brand new, I went ahead and created the very first group on this page. Naturally it’s called “Hiking in the Smoky Mountains.” I set this up for anyone who enjoys hiking in the Great Smoky Mountains. This group can be used to discuss recent hiking adventures, trail conditions, hiking suggestions, upcoming events and news impacting hikers.
Hopefully all of you hikers and adventurers out there will become members. Looks to be a great place for like minded people to socialize. If you do join, make sure to click on the group page and join my group!
