Rebuild Finished

Last night was one of those nights where you just start working on something and then suddenly realize, "Wow...is it 5 am already?" I finished all my major code alterations today and got everything uploaded. Like I said, it doesn't look all that different, but I'm much happier with what's going on behind the scenes. It didn't all go perfectly, of course - I broke some links by moving and renaming my archives, but it wasn't all that often that I linked to myself anyway.

I've spent a little time rebuilding the pages for my 1998 trip to the Superior Hiking Trail. That was my first real web project - I remember being in the dorms that summer, scanning photos and making the pages in Word. I figure that if I'm choosing to rework the code from my trips because I'm not satisfied with the job done by Word and FrontPage, then it's only fair to remove all the Microsoft-generated graphics as well. I have to admit that some of the sites look pretty decent, but it's a sacrifice I'm willing to make. Be prepared for a lot of plain black text on a white background.

I'd also like to get some new content up - I took canoe trips to the Boundary Waters in 1993, 1994, and 1995, and I imagine I could dig up some pictures from those. I took a very short trip to the Porcupine Mountains in Michigan's Upper Peninsula in 2002, and last October I climbed Humboldt Peak and got some great looks at the Crestones. Now that I live in Colorado I'm not sure what will constitute a "trip" or "adventure", so perhaps that means I'll place more emphasis on building the photo pages.

Speaking of pictures, anybody want to buy me a Canon Digital Rebel?
