Dale,
 
Are you familiar with the Polarsteps travel tracker App? It automatically tracks where you are and you can add pictures along the way. Your trip report will almost write itself. You can set it up to let others follow your trip. Your epic trip this Autumn will be a great chance to see how it works.

Jim, I’m curious about Polarsteps. I’ve downloaded the app, and wonder what you mean by the trip report will almost write itself. Is it because you’re making entries along the way, because it reminds you where you’ve been? Just wondering.

David,
 
How it was explained to me, the App tracks your location and when you take pictures with your phone they are inserted into a page for the location or time period. You can then go back and add a description when you have time.
 
I'll give it a shot in Evanston.

Sounds like something ChiBears15 would be interested in....his trip reports already write themselves but he is always looking to up his game!

Hey, I figured out (sort of) this Instagram thing a few months ago.  Give me some credit at least. 
 
I plan on learning trip reports later this year.

I don't even have any thoughts about that trip yet... It would be nice to revisit the Old Fashioned in Madison and Norske Nook in Osseo though now that I think about it as I'm writing..
