Alpinejo.tripod.com: Backcountry Trails Guide

I had to move my site due to Tripods new policy of only providing 20 megs of
free space, my site currently uses the old maximum at nearly 49 megs. As you may
have noticed my site was also being shut down on a daily basis due to exceeding
Tripod's new bandwidth policy--but hey what could I expect for free. It was fun
while it lasted.
In the coming weeks I hope to release the new format of Alpinejo-Backcountry
Trails Guide with a new database and searching capabilities.
Thanks for visiting!
