    Default posting trip reports

    Where does one post a trip report? Is there a specific format or do I just say a bunch of information about my trip?

    Scroll down to Member forums and trip reports, just tell it like it was, throw some pictures into it or in your photo gallery.

    This is how I do trip reports. Things can be added but I like to keep it simple, to the point andtelling it the way it is.

    Catfish Pond/Camp Mohican
    Date of Hike: 08/26/07

    Trail Conditions Humid. Trail was dry.

    Comments:

    The breathtaking and panoramic view along the Appalachian Trail rewards the hiker who has trekked up the steep side of the mountain. The view encompasses the pastoral farmland of New Jersey to the east and undeveloped forests and mountain ridges to the west.
    The thin soil and harsh climate characteristic is a difficult environment in which few plants can survive. Mountain laurel, wild blueberry, pitch pine and scrub oaks are among the natural vegetation found throughout the area. The Appalachian Trail runs along the ridge.
    Started hiking at Catfish Pond where they’re plenty of blue berries and water. Toke the Rattlesnake Swamp Trail to the Appalachian Trail, then to Route 602. Retraced my steps and hike on the AT to the Camp Road and then hiked to Camp Mohican.


    Special Equipment Required: Water, camera, map.

    Find a format that works for you! You can do an organized method as mentioned in the post by bt02. Or you can do more of a free form joural type entry.

    Tell a story, add other details as appropriate. Pictures are always welcome.
    Find a voice that works for you.


    Trip reports are great. They are about hiking...something this is BBS is about!
