I'll change them on Sunday - just send me a PM with the report you'd propose or post it here like John did


I think you should ask DMT, The Chief, or Dave D. ....if it should be done & if so, which one.

I'm in contact with Dingus ...

Not sure you're supposed to point to your own TR, but just in case: http://www.summitpost.org/trip-report/5 ... sgrat.html

I'll do this again, I have spent too much time and effort to see this forgotten in the depths of the site: http://www.summitpost.org/trip-report/5 ... dream.html

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.

(And don't forget to vote for my latest mountain page)

Cheers, Martin :wink:

Hey Alexandre, your photography is pretty incredible. Do you have to carry a full size SLR for pictures like that?

As for the TR, better luck next time if it doesn't hit the front page. Just keep cranking them out! Whether or not you get public huzzahs, you've captured another mountain climb in a memorable way for you and your friends on the climb. The value of a good TR grows with distance from the event.

Yes, I do carry a full DSLR with one or two lenses, which is a royal pain in the butt but well worth it afterwards. There's more details on http://www.luminous-landscape.com/tutor ... bing.shtml

Even though it seems that self-promotion is frowned upon, this is an awesome TR that definitely deserves the front page - I can't believe I missed it when it came out!

Wow, this is a great TR:

How did he get the pictures so big? I set mine to the largest setting and they were still not as big.
