See GMC Archives for all
Long Trail News and Long Trail Guides.

Every page begins the GMC logo and the names of the club and the section.

Next comes a horizontal list of links to other pages (the 'navigation bar'). Running your mouse over these options displays further options (a 'drop-down menu'). If your display does not support this drop-down function, use the links shown below.
For conversion from the old [Events | GMC | Trip Reports | . . . ] header to the new Nav Bar, see here.

Mailing Lists

We maintain several mailing lists. To subscribe, submit your email address on the mailing list page then respond to the message we send you. You will receive postings from all other subscribers via email. To post a message, send email to the mailing list's email address, as shown in the list description on that signup page. Posting is limited to list subscribers and those we authorize. All messages are checked for spam. Contact the website to post from a different account than you receive messages. Use the same link to unsubscribe and view archives of previous messages.

Only List members are allowed to send mail to the List. A "member" in this sense is just an email address. You can have several email addresses in the List, allowing you to send mail from each one, and you can tell List to deliver mail to only one of those addresses.
To join the List, or add another email address, use Subscribing to Gmcmontpelier-list. (more help) At Gmcmontpelier-list Subscribers you can change your email address, see other List users, and set various List options.

Submit a Trip Report

This online form is used by most people, but you can still get the old hard-copy Trip Report Form at Trips->Forms. You could also send the whole report as an email to
Be sure to complete all the fields: Date of trip, Name of trip, etc. I like to compose the write-up and people-attending in a text editor, and then copy-and-paste into the Form. (more help)

Tablet computers, using 'gestures'

Tablets are computers with a 'touch user interface' on a 'touchscreen'. Examples: iPad (Apple), Galaxy (Samsung), Android operating system (Google), Kindle (Amazon), Nook (Barnes and Noble).
This table describes how this website has been adapted to work on tablets. It does not attempt to cover the general use of tablets.
