Tips When Posting A Trip

From: Phil

Hey Guys!

Lots of great trips being posted! Wow!

Here are some tips to help those planning on attending or those trying to decide. A lot if this is based upon questions that wind up being asked.

1. Try to include the trail head (s), beginning and ending points of the trip and where you're going to camp (if known).

2. Reference a map source for attendees (i.e. hikingupward.com or midatlantichikes.com), or give enough information so attendees can plot and bring their own map.

3. Describe water sources, in route and/or at the campsite. (some folks like to know how much water they need to plan on carrying).

4.  We need to start saying something about LNT, especially in regards to respecting water sources and burying of TP.

5. And finally, maybe something about rides, i.e. carpools, ride sharing, gas cost sharing.

thanks

P
