Requesting Trip Reports

Post by maverick » Thu Apr 16, 2015 7:35 pm

Fellow HST Members,

We would like to request from all our HST members to please write up trip reports, it is
one of the many things that makes High Sierra Topix such a unique and a great community
to be a part of.

We enjoy helping anyone here, many request beta about a certain routes or peaks, sometimes
a thread can run a couple pages long, but then the person requesting the info never comes back
to share their experience, how the information they got here may have helped them, did they
find a different route or maybe a safer alternative route that could be helpful to another fellow
member who is interested in exploring the same locations.

Your pictures also help many of us get thru the slower parts of the year (Winter), and also helps
plant the seeds for places to visit in the upcoming backpacking/climbing/fishing season.

So please embrace our community, and be a team player by posting trip reports starting this year.

Thank you.

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

My wife refers to someone who comes in and gets everything they want and leaves without contributing as a burglar.

I see them more as window shoppers :-)

I will have atleast one good one this season and hopefully a couple overighters worth sharing. So far Ive just been dayhiking.

I suppose i could do a single thread and put brief TRs of all my dayhikes there. If nothing else they could atleast serve as a reference for trail conditions.

Hey, there's nothing wrong with brief reports! And in fact, brief or not we prefer separate threads for different locations so people doing trip planning research have an easier time finding what they need. :)

How about posting TRs from trips earlier in the year? Yes? No?
