I'm searching for chat sites for the following areas:  Yellowstone NP, Tetons NP, Rocky Mountains NP and Canyonlands NP among others.  I'm  planning a 9 state / 2 month hiking, biking, summit bagging, rafting, camping, enjoy the freedom trip once I return home.  I have found the NP version of some of these sites but find them lame compared to BigBendChat.  Thanks for any input.

Of course the other sites are lame compared to this one.  The first reason is that all other parks are lame compared to this one. :lol:   The second reason is that David, Richard, and all the incredible members on this forum are the best.
Don't worry about getting lost.  You're biodegradable

Ric, I have been to the Tetons several times and may be able to offer some advice.

There used to be a chat site for RMNP, Digital Rocky, which was helpful to me back in the late 90s, but I wasn't able to find it - it is probably defunct.

I know that Glacier NP has a very good chat group, and I highly recommend visiting the park if you swing your itinerary anywhere near it. I spent a week there last fall.

...which is currently down.  :? Besides, the Loon page was created as an alternative to the regular Yellowstone Chat Page after its members kept getting too off-topic.  Oh wait, it's currently down, too....  :roll:

for peak bagging can't beat www.summitpost.org

their forums are also somewhat helpful, though a little slow.
