I vote for a trip report section. These are too good to have them disappear after just a few days. All trip reports, all the time. Pages and pages of them. Reading for a rainy day.

Three sections.

1. Main section just like now but without trip reports.

2. Trip reports.

3. Best of supertopo, much like craigslist except the thread would be in two places. It would start out on the main page, and if it recieved enough votes, then staff could add it in the best of section while leaving it in the main section. This would mean it was permanently archived in the best of section but was still active in the main section. Then everytime it was posted to from either the best of or the main section it would go to the head of the line in the main section like any other thread. AND... it would stay in the best of.

This would retain the flavor of supertopo's free for all while helping keep the gems in a place easier to find.

Just my thoughts. It would keep things simple. Adding to the "best of" could happen just a few times a year. Little work and still a free for all.

Ed Hartouni - Not like I'm a perv or something, but.... Yeah, The Sooze is a hotty.

Climbs stronger than me and don't take shit! Plays poker with the best of them. Can certainly throw down with the best of them when it comes time to dish some surprisingly vicious and perfectly timed and delivered One Liners!!! "Pretty chunky for a guy on a starvation diet..." comes to mind! I may never let that one go.

Not to mention her contributions to the climbing community via Fish Products.

GREAT TR Russ!!!

Told in the true FISH Style.
I always enjoy your TRs.

In fact, I and a few Friends put up a route
in your honor back in the early 90s, called,
"Sitting around the campfire telling FISH stories"

Hot Stuff,

two trip reports in one.

If you avoid looking at the video, YSL makes the 1096 look
so reasonable.

I wonder how many backs have smacked into that Oak at the Mama.

It's a "favorite TR" bump day Jingy..... those were of course my favorites.

C'mon, give us a treat.... write a TR about your masturbation routine in the cubicle. Omit nothing.

oh... did this just bump it?

hey, can some one bump that TR where Russ gets shot? The man was dead as a haddock.

That was a good one, too.

Edit: it's already up--never mind.
