Guido,

I got these screen junkies eatin outta my hand. 21 hits on this little thread......it'll probably be in the hundreds by the time you wake up tomorrow morning. It's just an appetizer for what's to come. This thing is gonna be bigger than Harry Potter part 9.

I'm actually thinking of putting the first paragraph in this thread just to whip yall into a frenzy.

A good Trip Report is 90% PR these days anyway. it takes marketing savvy to stay ahead of Vitaliy, Pellucid Wombat and Hudon these days. I'm all about staying in the 70-90 comments range at a bare minimum with my TR's. It takes work to stay ahead of the scoundrels.

Here's a photo to get folks salivatin.....

You know what they say... 60% of the time, it works every time.

That pic looks like someone got pulled over. Just saying, that's a good way to start a trip report.

Scrambled up to the ledge at the base of a popular Squamish route one day with another grizzled old guy and found a party already roped up. Young woman on belay, young man on the sharp end.

He was all muscular and wearing a tank top, and when he saw us old guys he started doing a bunch of "stretching" to get ready. Except what he was really doing was flexing his muscles so that everyone present would see how much burlier and manlier than us he was.

But his partner was no fool. She just stared him down and then said: "Stop posing, and send."

Good advice, and applicable here.

Your TRs are great, so stop posing and send!

I want to be rich and famous and garner the adoration of hundreds of strangers on the internet who hang out in the day arguing over politics instead of climbing. This will be my opus.
Rich and famous?
Scott, yer already famous around this campfire for humorous Trip Reports, and being rich is way overrated!!!

lookin forward to it,

Follow WML's lead and use music in your TR.

The thread title made me think of this song, maybe there's a place for it in the TR, maybe not.



BTW, your TR's are some of the best out there!

This is starting to look like the airplane crash thread. All BS and no product.

Just a bump to help meet your minimum post requirement.....

This is good:

I'm Nervous.
Nervousness/worrying = fear "Fear not for I am with you always, saith the Lord."
The words just aren't there yet.
"I can do all things, through Christ Jesus who strengthens me."
But I find myself a bit timid at the wheel.
"For the Spirit God gave us doesn't make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline."

Yo Luckyneck. I got yer back. Just gave props on that sick photo of yours. I realized Briham89 is in the shot too.

This weekend should gimme some good time to hunker down and write. I'm thinking of putting each new paragraph into its own thread, and starting new threads every few minutes so that I take up the entire front page as a TR marketing bomb to Supertopo.
