    I do research on backpackinglight, as I'm rigging my ~10 lbs/L messenger bag to do outdoor nighters (just add freeze-dried food & sleeping bag).

    I like Everyday Commentary for a casual read and pointers on gear.

    I like the site too. I THINK they have a podcast too with some good info, but has become unlistenable to me due to the fact that the host says "like" constantly. Once I picked up on that, it became nails on a chalkboard. :(

    With EDCF already doing the enabling I don't think I could handle any more inspiration :p

    j/k - everydaycarrydotcom was new to me, need to check it out.

    I stumbled upon "Survival Monkey" when I was looking for some good old-style recipes for beef jerky. Some great resource links.

    Only two (in terms of gear and edc) on a regular basis: EDCF (did you really think I'd say anything different?) and Fountain Pen Network.

    Between these two I really don't need any more enabling; certainly can't afford it! :p

    L'chaim!
