I'm sorry if this is the wrong thread but an idea to go along with the trip reports are names of equipment, photos, and opinions of the gear and systems people use. Tony Wong does a great job on his photos. It's amazing how much one can learn from seeing what others use, how they do things, and sometimes why they like their systems.
Don't get me wrong, the scenic photos make me daydream all the time. It's a plus to learn from others too.
