I post 'teaser' trip reports because, as others pointed out, it is tedious to use this site for extended photos, links, etc. On certain forums, I can do a copy and paste of my entire trip report and everything copies over OK. BPL ain't one of them.
On certain topics (esp ones concerning Colorado and The Colorado Trail), I have a ton of info I wrote on my website. I am not going to reinvent the wheel. :) Typically, I'll type the appropriate info and say something along the lines of "To see more info on transportation, check out this link at xxxxx"
I really, honestly and truly don't care how many people come to my website. For me, it is just a matter of convenience. I'll write the info if needed but I'll link as needed, too.
Of course, this debate ranks up their with purity on the long trails, Coke vs Pepsi and how many licks does it take to the center of a Tootsie Roll Pop. :D
