Message from the Editor/Publisher

The Backcountry Llama is a quarterly print publication that was launched in 1987 by Noel McRae. Noel passed it to Dick Williams in 2007, who published the last issue of 2012 and handed it off to me. Both Noel and Dick worked hard to keep the publication running through the waxing and waning of our industry, and I am proud to be the next to continue the tradition. As you can see by the covers below, the scope of The Backcountry Llama has expanded to include all non-motorized backcountry travel and adventure, not just llama packing.
