Why is it?

Why are there are so few people posting about the trips they take? There are plenty of posts with people asking what routes to take, what campgrounds to stay at, complaining about their RV, complaining about tires, etc. How come so few post a thread about their trips? How come so few post pictures of what they did on their trip? Am I the only one that enjoys reading about the travel of others?

Recently Fushux posted an outstanding report about his trip from California to Oregon. How come so few people take the time to write reports about their travels? What’s up with that?

Probably because most people come here when they have a problem or question. A successful RV trip doesn't usually require input from a bunch of strangers on a message board.

I can only take one big trip a year (stupid work). So I might post pictures from it. Most of my weekend trips up on Facebook.

I take lots of short weekend trips. Nothing much worth writing about. For example, I'll be spending this upcoming weekend in Newport, RI checking out the mansions.

Pretty low key.

True!
I really like all the traveling threads....even the short weekend gigs. I get a bunch of ideas for future trips!
And I get to live vicariously through these posts since we both still have to do that dirty 4 letter word 50 hrs a week

my trips are a week, maybe a week and a half in nature due to still haveing to work for the man.

I would love to talk about my trip to Yellowstone and Grand Teton, but many of the people here have been there and done that

however, you are right, i should at least post more pictures.. for instance the Bear 40-50 foot up in the tree with her 2 cubs

Guess I never really thought that anyone really wanted to see what I did other than maybe some tech stuff. I posted my trip to Michigan and it seemed to be enjoyed by folks beyond what I had expected.

I usually take tons of photos of our trips, if anything to better my skills. But, I tend to not post them or say much about where / when I am away until I get back due to just my concerns or not saying when I am away for a week. By the time I get back I do not ever think of posting up pics.

For me, it's time consuming. I've done a few trip reports on a Disney board and I'm usually way too verbose and have way too many pictures. But, some people seem to enjoy it.

Never really thought of it for FRF, though there have been a few recently and it's been nice reading through them.

Yes, I've been following your thread and enjoying the heck out of it. I guess you are still at Mountaindale, it is our favorite campground in Colorado. A couple of years ago there was a FROG rally at Mountaindale and early one morning a black bear walked through...yikes!
