Adventure Alan’s Trip Guides
Trip guides differ from trip reports because they include map sets, text description/instructions for the route, travel logistics, and other information to enable the reader to plan and execute the trip on their own. Most of these routes fall into a loose category of Adventure Trips. They usually have interesting portions of off-trail travel and other entertaining navigation, and terrain challenges.
