The ranking score is used to determine how "popular" a trip or location is. It is calculated based off of a weighted average of the number of reviews and the user ratings. For example, a trip with 2 reviews and an average rating of 5 will have a lower "ranking score" than one with 10 reviews and an average rating of 4. This is because even though the first trip has a better average rating, it has not been reviewed as much as the second trip, so it is not as "popular". In the future we may modify the ranking score to take in additional factors, such as the number of views, comments, and photos.
Hiding on the island I took this right as the wind and rain started to get heavy...still sunny in the background though. Also this is where I pulled my kayak completely out of the water, and tucked it into the bank in front of the ridge

White Caps Tough to see through the trees, but 2 ft white caps were rolling down the lake 08/16/15 06:25 AM
Upside down So during the heaviest of the winds I couldnt really look around, or see anything, or hear anything, but when it all died down, here was my boat, thrown up a 12 foot bank onto a ridge, and along the way the paddle bent, a rod holder containing a rod was ripped right off the kayak, and my paddle strap was snapped...however not a rod broke!
