Sorry, Craig. If that's all you got, it doesn't quite meet our criteria. Get a good trip in and I'll be happy to move you up!!

Tony, looks like you may have a couple trips. Can you please write them up in the trips section instead of in your build thread? We want to highlight trips that people have taken and reward people for taking the time to write them up with trail rankings. Thanks!
