I love trip reports. My favorite forum on this board. Lately there seems to be an abundance of "live" trip reports. Which is great since many of the members enjoy live trip reports. Especially when it's accompanied by pics. I must confess that as much as I like reading these types of reports, I still look forward to the "conventional" type of reports that are submitted after the trip. These reports are like reading mini-novels, and it's easier to refer to parts of it if you need to stop for any reason. The subject matter seems to flow smoother imho. "Live" reports are like wild roller coasters, lol!! It's like a crazy ride and you feel like you are right there with the poster. I think this is why these reports are so much fun and popular with the board. I admire those who commit to this type of report because it requires a lot of work. The only minor down side to this is when I need to catch up to the antics of the poster. But I still like the conventional ones. Those written with humor, reflection, sadness, and ecstasy. Pair it with pictures and I'm a happy camper! Some of you are wonderful at doing this. But ALL of you who contribute trip reports are appreciated and respected. So what about you? What do you like in trip reports? Do you like live ones or the conventional ones? Why do you like these particular reports? Those who submit or are thinking of submitting live reports I look forward to reading them! Don't stop! I enjoy them immensely. Those who submit conventional ones, don't feel it won't be read because of the popularity of the live ones. I'm sure there are many on the board that still appreciate these types of reports. Whatever it is, let's all contribute trip reports! We should make it a requirement, lol!
