Apology not accepted as it is not required.
Appears that you misunderstood my comment. 10-30 years ago, there was no internet. Thus many did not have the vehicle to immediately publish their adventure/s with a slew of photos.
But many of those humble "hardmen" individuals that I am referring to, would certainly not have done so today had they had that ability either.
"Bardini Lives" is one that immediately comes to mind.
