Thanks, Fasttrak! I'm still stoked about the trip and continue to be energized by the experience especially as I relive it everyday in putting this RR together and looking at the pics over and over, which I can do forever!

Re: the photo vignettes, steal away! I noticed that the pics come out pretty big on these threads, so I wanted a way to present the subjects collectively without taking up too much space on the thread and end up having too many pages.

I probably use an unconventional method. Since I'm in Finance, I love spreadsheets! So, I copy the pictures, paste them onto Excel, crop accordingly, arrange to my liking, apply any formats I like to the worksheet, utilize shapes and other formatting tools to do comment bubbles or other call outs, and then use SnagIt to capture as a pic the collage. I have photoshop and other photo/video editing tools, but I work on Excel pretty fast.

Glad you're enjoying the report... stay tuned for more!
