Hi, Bill,

I just wanted to ask if this is still a future addition that you have in mind for TRs. Hope hunting is going well for you this season!

I just changed the My Reports page to include TRs created by other users who included you in reports. When I have more time, I'll add options to filter between your own TRs and other authors.

Thanks a ton for this feature, Bill! It has been on my wish list for awhile, and I even found a TR I didn't know I was in until just now.

Bill,

Do you have any desire to extend 14ers.com to all 14ers in the lower 48? There's a ton of info on Rainier already and the Cali 14ers seem to be gaining popularity around here so I thought it would be nice to start organizing some of it. Personally, I think that would be an incredible goal to strive for someday.

I know I'm kind of a bastard to present a project right before ski season starts, but I wondered what the forum's thoughts were on the subject.

Yes!! I'd personally love to see more of this. We're going to be relocating to California soon (yeah, I know, everyone else is leaving there :roll: ) so naturally my thoughts turned to 14ers available there and any online info about them. While there is some stuff out there, it would be great if it was included on this site and in this format.

Careful there Floyd that's crazy talk! At least it was when I brought it up last year and Terry felt the need to lay the smack-down for me even suggesting to just add the CA/WA 14ers to the peak checklist! See this thread. viewtopic.php?f=9&t=21333&start=468#p360618

The Professional Post Responder has been MIA lately, so I don't think you have to worry about getting arbitrarily smack downed in the foreseeable future.

I have no plans to extend the site past Colorado at this point. However, any peaks can be included in trip reports.

Fair enough. Any chance you could put in some filters on the "Other Peaks"? How about elevation, state, country, maybe range/subrange for CO peaks, others?

I'd be happy to help out categorizing the existing reports and there could be a drop down picklist for whatever criteria you find important that appears for future reports.

Yes/No?

Thanks again for all the work you do on the site. It's a great resource and provides plenty of entertainment when it turns into Real World CO.

What about allowing several people to edit the same TR before it's live? I'd love to be able to co-write TRs when hiking with other 14er members. Not sure if this is already possible, but, I figured I'd ask.
You cannot stay on the summit forever; you have to come down again. So why bother in the first place? Just this: What is above knows what is below, but what is below does not know what is above. One climbs, one sees. One descends, one sees no longer, but one has seen. There is an art of conducting oneself in the lower regions by the memory of what one saw higher up. When one can no longer see, one can at least still know. - Rene Daumal
