Hey everyone! I am new to backpacking and am wondering, do any of you guys know of any overnight backpacking trails within an hour or two of Peoria? I have been looking all over the internet and just can't find any. I am thinking at least 6 or 7 miles. (campfire is necessary) Thanks!

I tried to find a forum 'How To' link and wasn't able to. If someone else can find it post it here, please.

You basically host your image on a site, and then link to it here.
I made a meme from a picture I found on a site and it's hosted on Memeshappen.com
Click the Insert Image icon in the toolbar above, and paste in the direct link to the picture. The direct link is: http://memeshappen.com/media/created...meme-32564.jpg

But with the insert image used, it looks like this:

Oh ok thanks! Yeah I wonder if I could just give a link to a Google+ post with a photo? It might only show up as a link but then anyone could just click on it and see it.

Might work? I'm not familiar with G+, though you can link to it in your post, then preview the post to make sure it'll show right as a test.
