Program to document Road Trip?

I just got back from a month long snowboarding trip split into two segments. The first segment in California including Mammoth, Squaw and my home mountain Kirkwood. We took a week to get our gear in order, friends and family taken care of and work sorted then we took off for Sun Valley, Idaho, Jackson Hole Wyoming, Park City Utah, Snowbird and then returned to South Lake Tahoe for a couple days at Heavenly. Everyone on the trip had the Mountain Collective Pass and the Tahoe Epic Pass. Along the way we stopped at the Craters of the Moon, Bridger Teton National Forest, Bonneville Salt Flats, Tiyobe National Forest and we travelled much of the length of the loneliest road in America hwy 50. I would like to attract more people next year and to do so I want to document our trip. I envision a map of our route with pictures, videos and articles linked to locations you can click on the map. Is anyone aware of such a program?

Not aware of a program, commenting to subscribe and see what others come up with.

Many years ago a hand-made a trip journal similar to what you describe, for a bike tour I took with a college buddy. I hand-created HTML with picture thumbnails inset on a map, you could click on each thumbnail to get to the full image and a description. But it was a lot of work, would be cool if there were a smarter solution nowadays, especially taking advantage of geotagged imagery.

Strava will allow you to map your course.

RideWithGPS also allows mapping the course, as well as adding photos to it. I do argue with it a bit as it wants to grab photos as you take them, whereas I'd prefer to review and edit my photos then upload.

"the loneliest road in America hwy 50."

that's one of my favorites.

you could start a flickr page for the photos and use microsoft maps to route the trip, placing pins where you stop.

You have a few options, but using Wordpress with one of the mapping/geolocation plugins would give you the most flexibility and power to do what you want.

To get more visibility, look into using Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, etc to provide quick photos/updates that link back to your blog.
