Hi Boris,

Thank you for asking about this. If you are referring to Wintertrekking.com forums, unfortunately we were maliciously hacked. The site had to be taken down due to the damage. I was away at the time on a solo canoe expedition in the arctic, and am just now getting caught up on what happened after my long drive back from Yellowknife. We are going to explore a few options, but it may take a while to come back. There are issues like needing to change service providers, possibly some new software, and we will have some challenges retrieving the database that contains all that wonderful member-generated knowledge and experience, and uploading to new software, etc (lots of technical details I know little about at this time). So we will take it one day at a time and see what happens.

I sure don’t understand why there are mean and despicable people out there who get pleasure in attacking and trying to destroy things like these wonderful communities. I bet they are not paddlers or winter campers, and probably don’t spend any time in the outdoors.
