PLEASE ---- do not post part I and part 2 and part 3 as separate new topics. If you look down the current list of topics you will see that all of those wonderful trip reports get scattered as people respond and bump each part to the top. And the order become completely jumbled. Pretty soon cannot find all of the parts.
Make your first part the New Topic, and THEN immediately post your second part as a response to your first posting. And your third part as the second response --- and so on. That way all of your report will stay together forever.
Also if is helpful if others understood what a trip report is and post other trip related question in the correct section.
