I've just made a single launch page for all of my trip reports. I have them under three different Picasa accounts, so it was difficult to see all of them at once.

Here's the link to the page:

I also welcome feedback, positive or otherwise, and am happy to give out pointers on campsites and warn fellow paddlers of possibly unknown hazards (Slingsby Rip & Nahwitti Bar being foremost amongst them).

Happy paddling!

Thanks, Tom, for making all those reports available to the paddling community.

I'm about ready to start mining the BC Trip Reports folder and posting route descriptions in the Route Information threads. Having yours so readily accessible will make the job much easier!

I think this is the most fascinating set of trip reports on the ccr site.
Thank you.

Thanks for the kind words.

Now I know somebody is looking at them, I feel like all the time spent making them wasn't wasted.

Google blogger? Is that better than picasa?
I like picasa because I can get photos online with a couple clicks, I think with a blogger its more text oriented, and less features to ease handling large numbers of photos.
I'll look into it though. Do you have TR's on google blogger, Cobain?


Krusty, here's a list of my major gear items:

Necky Alsek kayak, poly hull, fat 14'er hybrid with dual bulkheads.
Kokatat PFD with aftermarket strobe/whistle
Kokatat GMER drysuit with boots and releif zipper
West Marine JIS7 spec waterproof VHF
Yaesu FT60R 2m/70cm ham handheld transceiver
Seablade Paddle
Neoprene spray skirt
Large can of bearspray
Buck 119 neodymium hunting knife
Bushnell 12x42 waterproof binoculars

Thanks for the feedback.
By the way, I made separate TR's for Nimpkish and Woss Lakes now.

Many thanks, Tom, for posting all those reports.
It's a real contribution to the paddling community.

I'll be entering links to those reports, together with route descriptions, in the BC Route Information threads, as I've done for most of the other TRs in this folder.
What is posted in the Trip Reports threads won't be touched in any way.

When the new Routes is up and running (we're working hard on this now), the stuff in the Route Information threads will be transferred to the Routes database (not sure I'm using the correct term here). The goal is to provide a single source for Route information at CCR, whether the information is

in Routes proper (for example Freda Mellenthin's Pine-Peace report at
http://www.myccr.com/canoedb/routeDetai ... outeid=782 ),

or posted in the TR Forums and linked to in the Route Information threads (for example Canoeheadted's Troitsa Lake report
viewtopic.php?f=106&t=34068 ;
viewtopic.php?f=105&t=34200 ),

or located externally (for example Margot Neis's Bowron Lakes report http://www.vvneisfamily.com/canoeing/bo ... story.html ;
viewtopic.php?f=105&t=34200 ),

wherever.

I'll soon be posting proposals for the new folders within each province and territory.

Everyone: please keep the TRs coming.
Yours in paddling, Allan

That sounds good Al - I really like the idea of linking in external TR's, and having links to them show up when you click on a specific region on that click-able map.

You are going to keep the clickable map?

Would you perhaps consider expanding the clickable map to have an extra BC coastal subregion? My Tr's show lots of destinations off the northern end of Van Isle, Quatsino Sound, QC Straight, Cape Caution. Andrew's TR's cover the Broughtons and Hakai, further north - I'm sure he'd consent to having them linked in. Just a suggestion. I'm going to be interested to see what it is you guys are working on - not sure what you mean by 'folders'.

Of course, much of the open water crossings, etc, are more suited for closed-deck kayaks - but still doable in a canoe if you really know what you're doing. It'd be good to put lots of cautionary stuff on some of these, as I guess most of the viewers will be paddling canoes.

Regards,
