Mileage Lookup view your current hikes and miles
Unless you opt out (and a few members do) the Club keeps track of
the miles you hike on Club hikes. Every time you hike with us you are asked to sign a sign-up
sheet to attest you understand the Club's liability release. All
sign-up sheets are sent to our Mileage officer (often by a photo from
a phone) who records the miles in a database.
You now have the ability to view your current mileage. Click on Mileage Lookup to see
the miles you have accumulated as well as a list of the hikes you have attended since October 1, which is the start of the Club year. This information is
usually updated weekly, but please recognize that after a hike it takes time to receive a sign-up sheet and record the mileage so do not be alarmed if your most recent hikes do not appear. If you do not wish others to view your mileage and hikes,
please advise Karen Zimmerman (317-691-8228;
email@example.com) and your name will be blocked from view.
At the completion of the Club year on September 30, the Mileage
officer produces the Trail Blazer report which recaps all members
annual and lifetime mileage. This page includes links to the current
and historical Trail Blazer reports. To view a report click on one of
the links below. The reports are PDF files. See below if you have an
issue viewing them.
Club patriarch, Bill Larrison, prepared the first Trail Blazer in 1968
following the Club's 10 year anniversary. Bill went on to produce the
Trail Blazer for 43 years, all without the aid of a computer. Today we
can assemble the report from the mileage database in a fraction of the
time that it used to take Bill. Besides recapping member mileage, the
Trail Blazers provide a historical record of Club activities for the
year in question, including hikes, events and overnight
trips. Starting with the 1968 Trail Blazer, reports are available for
every ten years up through 2008 and then annually beginning in
2011. You can learn a lot about the history of our club by looking at
the earlier reports.
