- Thank you guys,
It actually has become quite easy.
Every time I buy a new piece of gear I make a folder for it in my
Futures section of my BGT folder. I take pictures as soon as I get
it, and set up a template of the review. Then at the end of each trip
after I write up my trip log I add comments to the review in progress
while it is fresh in my mind. When I decide I have enough use I pull
one out and put the finishing touches on it. I can finish one in less
than a couple hours. I do them on plane flights quite often. I may
write up some trekking poles today on my flight.
I just looked, and I have 26 possible reviews in the Futures folder
right now. Not all of them will be written up though. If I don't like
something I won't bother putting the time in with it. And lots of
shoes and boots get discontinued before I can get enough use because
of testing commitments (which take priority for my time in the
field). So they get dumped too. But I still end up with a lot to
And it helps that I like talking about gear. (I am not allowed to
talk about girls ) ;-)
- WOW! You are sure a credit to BGT! Way to go!
