Ah, dear friend, you're a victim of that well-documented SP syndrome known as "out-of-what's-new, out of mind".
It happens to all of us, especially with TR's since there's only 10 of them at a time. In summer, when everyone's out there givin' it, you might only have a matter of hours before your hard work is despatched into anonymity as everyone gets home and posts their adventures.
It's frustrating perhaps, but who's to say what's more important to the individual: swatting blackflies on some nondescript hill in the Ozarks or a realising a childhood dream to climb Mont Blanc. Some - less charitable than me - might argue that, since you took a lift and were served meals in a hut, your trip had less worth than a fully self-contained climb of a lesser mountain than Mont Blanc. It all depends on your point of view.
Self promoting won't help. That's tantamount to vote-begging. You'll have DMT and others down on you like a ton of bricks for a crime like that.
Altruism is the key. Submit your work for the good of others and your own satisfaction. Bend to SP's vagaries. Go with the flow.
