Trip Report Elements

What do you think should be included or that you would like to see in a backpacker's trip report.

I think it would be helpful for us all to come up with some tips and ideas, so that we can start posting some good trip reports as our backpacking year progresses.

I think the following are helpful/important/interesting:
  • Description of the trail/location
  • What you saw (photos)
  • How you felt
  • What you experienced
  • Who or what you met
  • NOTE: The remainder of this post can be read by logging in. For free PBF membership click here
