I have one. Laughing Knees. I used to post regularly, but what with the disasters in 2011 and getting very sick at the end of that year, and then my site getting completely destroyed by a malicious hacker in January, it's taken a while getting things back up. I'm slowly, by hand, putting everything back up one-by-one (I've redone the entire site and rearranged things like categories and sections, so I can't just simply use the old files as is). I hope to get back to posting again regularly, soon. Have a look! (^J^)/"

Ken,

This is a great idea. I think we should push RJ to add a tab at the top of the page for member links.

Brendan, love those photos and looked like a cool trip around Arches. We just missed you in Coyote by a few days. Thanks.

It's a good start. Many I am familiar with. New ones too. I know there are more though.

@Nick. Maybe with the soon to be improved software we could.

Re: Couple More on 11/05/2012 18:10:45 MST Print View

I have one, but I also write about much more than just getting out. I started a new job and haven't done much with it lately. I am also questioning the impact of the trip report as a genre--it is getting tired and clich├ęd in my opinion.

For what it's worth: Dispatches from Outside.

There's also Dondo's site. He's one of the few that I read regularly who challenges the conventions of the trip report: Dondo Outdoors.

Nice idea Ken, very nice.

I know you don't want to take the responsibility of missing anyone out, but would you consider editing your first post?

It would be great to have these as clickable links in the first post, perhaps with the members name, and then the link. I know the BPL software is slightly less than ideal for this, but maybe someone else smarter than me could set it up for you.

Cheers, Rod

Hey Rod. I was waiting for a bit of a list to accumulate. I'll alphabetize too of course.
