    the article, “a hike in ruins, was great! I am big into backpacking and I love reading about news ideas for place i might get to go. I think it would be great if Boys Life added a column must-go backpacking locations! I look forwards to seeing more ideas.

    The article, “a hike in the ruins” is great! I am really into backpacking, and I think it would be great if Boys Life kept giving me ideas of where to go backpacking. I hope to see more great backpacking ideas!
