Sentimental or farther-away trips may end up here. Since 2009, majority of my stuff goes on social media.

No need for a fancy-schmancy web site.  To see the big photos, click on any small (thumbnail) image in the reports below.  Some trips are not listed here.

If you would prefer to pick Trip Reports from a map, try this MAP. (I don’t update that too often; last updated June 24, 2017. I came up with the divisions 10 years ago, and they seem a bit silly now.)
