The Forums will be down, Friday, November 24th starting 8 AM PST for upgrade.We'll probably be down until 1PM PST, but it might be longer. I'm doing a major forum software upgrade, so I expect the forums to operate somewhat differently when we come back online.
Hi Geoff, If you want to go the north region, i recommend to you Karadeniz of course. Rize (Ayder, Çamlıhemşin, Fırtına Deresi, Zil Kale) if you like they have a very nice rafting zones , Trabzon (Uzungöl, Sümela), highlands (Dolit, Olovit in Erzurum and Karadeniz Border), Artvin. And taste the delicious Karadeniz Foods (Hamsili pilav, mısır ekmeği, kuymak, all kind of fishes). As you know the region is also famouse with it's tea and nuts.
