Boy,

I hope my non artical posts will be enough to keep me in this great place......
No, but your upcoming trip threads will :D

Seriously though I'm not sure how we will delineate it all, but as of right now we have 44 out of 103 threads that have never even posted, not an intro, nada. 25 members that havn't logged in since June and a dozen or so members that registered and have never been back :eek:

Just a reminder, contribute or face the consequences :D

The mods are working out a policy for member activity and contributions, after they are set in place expect the first axe to swing and inactive members will be cut. Don't let it be you :D
Please keep in mind some of us may be out of pocket travelling for 2-3 months or less and do not want to be "delineated" out for inactivity. I will post what I can when I get back as winter is a great time to think back at the fun and sun I had in the warm climes of the south!:D

BTW when did you have the first cuts in mind?

Hey Kurt.....the GPX icons still aren't working here....just bumping this up in case you forgot :)
I didn't forget, I just didn't do it right... I didn't have the icon in the right folder. All fixed now :cool: Thanks for the reminder and the icon!

Best place to post?

Ok, I think this is the best place to post this. This site is great!! I wish I had a bunch of this info last summer when I was out there!! Like the geyser in Green River. I went to the Powell Museum (which is very cool for $4) but would have drive the extra 3 miles to the Geyser if I had known. Now I am definitely getting a smart phone so I can save a bunch of this info and take it with me this summer.

Thanks to all who have posted such great info!!!

Glad to hear you are liking our setup. Keep in mind you can be a substantial site contributor without ever leaving Tennessee :D

No matter where your located or what your Utah trip plans are looking like for the next couple of months, you can research something you find interesting and share it with the rest of us. Do a short writeup of a Ghost Town or arch with a couple of borrowed pictures (reference/link where the photos were taken). These types of reports would be posted in our "Statewide Research" Section. Another option would be to read a neat book pertaining to Utah and submit a short book report when your done. All add to the wealth of information that is ExpeditionUtah :cool:

Also, don't forget about our sister states, ExpeditionColorado.com as well as the mini-sites hosted here on EU.com (Idaho, Nevada, etc). Any contributions are extremely welcomed!

I totally agree with Kurt's earlier comment " you don't have to leave your computer to travel". I hear of a place or read up on it on a website, book or conversation and then research the dickens out of it. As I find out more about, I figure or dream about how can I work this in with my other trips/plans and next thing you know I have another marathon trip planned. I realize most of you don't have this kind of time but look at it this way, see what you have ahead of you! Sites like this will make planning these trips a breeze. Now we just need a concierge we can email/call and they can put it together for us. This site is just that concierge!

I do about 6-10 trips a year from long weekends, to 2-6 weeks or longer and it is sites like these that allow me to live vicariously through other travelers, local experts, vivid discussions and brilliant photos. It is my one-stop shopping, so to speak, to plan my trips, get someone else's expertise and insight, and make new friends and hopefully new traveling companions.

Guess i'm one of the 44 Kurt mentions. I havent contributed because i'v never been to Utah, but it's been a dream that through circumstance hasnt materialized quite yet.

I also dont want to be one to start a thread asking input, then find another area that "excites" me more and start another. All without sharing a timely report of my own afterwords. I'd prefer to quietly sit back and daydream over the reports that Randy, Alex and many others here typically post up, and hope that i eventually get out there. Same as i do at EXPO, NAXJA etc.

You guys have a great site here and i like the way it's growing. I just hope i dont lose the privledge of reading your adventures because of my own inactivity. Currently i'm hoping to finally visit Utah around the spring 2010 timeframe, and finally meet a few here who i have communicated with in the past. But for now i'll have to be content as a WebOverlander. ;)

Thought i'd chime in as one of those who are not a local contributor. I do however understand the reasoning behind the implementation of such a policy, and for the record agree with it. If i'm purged i guess i'll just have to research areas i'd like to visit elsewhere.

Welcome to the site John. Don't worry about not ever having been here in order to contribute, whenever you run across something cool related to areas in Utah, post up with a link, or a short report.
And don't be afraid to ask lots of questions about areas in Utah. I guarantee someone here can answer them.
