I too have problems getting on to the getaway site; half the days it doesn’t work for long stretches. LWhiker doesn’t seem to have up to date information- when I look on backpackinglight webstie gear swap there are recent things listed there tha aren’t on the LWhiker search results.May 16, 2018 at 9:36 pm #3536062Ken ThompsonBPL Member
@hereLocale: Right there
503 error with Getaway.
Really upset that our Gear Swap histories have been wiped from our profile.
Just keep making it harder to find stuff. Awesome.May 17, 2018 at 8:47 pm #3536279M FBPL Member

I’m the guy behind lwhiker and I’m not seeing any issues regarding the posts being up to date. In an attempt to keep things friendly with the BPL servers we only check for new posts every few hours – so anything that’s between 2-3 hours new on BPL will potentially not be picked up by lwhiker yet. Also keep in mind that lwhiker goes by the date a thread was _posted_ – so what’s on the front page of BPL isn’t what will be on the most recent posts on lwhiker due to older threads on BPL being “bumped” to the top of BPL via comments – they’ll not be updated on lwhiker.
Please, if you do find examples of posts on BPL that aren’t making to to lwhiker – feel free to reach out! (Either here or via the support email on lwhiker.com)
