Map of owners/members

Some of the other forums have a map or some database where owners can see where other members are located. That way, impromptu rally's or meetings can be made. Any way we can start a member/owner database to see how close we maybe to one another and perhaps plan a gathering? What does everyone else think of this idea? If not a map at least request that everyone update their profile to show what state they are located in.

This site used to have one. I am not sure if that is what happened but I suspect it is.: the membership gets large, the Frapper map becomes slow to load and eventually it doesn't work at all. Seems like a couple hundred entries are all it takes.

Regards,

Matt

I checked out the old Frappr thread, and it said that someone had bought Frappr and cancelled the service.

Updating profiles to show the state would be very helpful. Some people prefer to protect their privacy and do not wish to be included in something as specific as a map.

By updating the state more people may be inclined to reach out and host a rally convenient to a handful vs one attended by dozens from far away, not that they are not fun, but I'd like to see more get togethers more often!!

YES! Thank you for voicing my thoughts Vivian! I don't even know what state some of the cities I'm seeing are in. It really is very helpful when replying to specific questions, etc. If someone is looking for welder/repair/parts/paint shop for instance.

Portland, Maine
or
Portand, Oregon

You are in PA, I assume?
I initially thought you were one of my neighbours:
York, Ontario - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

On Edit:
Wow, I just discovered a lot of places are called York

YES, I agree knowing the State is a big help and city even a bigger help. I like to know where my fellow fiberglass people are in comparison to me, that is why I posted my city. Some day I may find another person from my area. The fellow I got my camper from used to be on this board, but I never knew. He and his wife lived just a few short miles from me. It would be nice to know who my fiberglass neighbors are. I agree some may not want to let others know who and where they are, and I assume that is why they are not posting city and state. I posted the message about Mpls campers because I think we have more fiberglass campers in this area than we think we do. I am one of the curious ones :-)

From a security standpoint, this forum is not members-only nor password protected. Just understand that any information you post here is fair game to any lurkers who maybe would like to visit you when you're not home, if you know what I mean. Why make it easier for someone with nefarious intentions to find where you live? Just by following our rally threads, they can gain much personal information on people here and cross reference common on-line data resources to pinpoint your home.

they can do the same with your tag# on your car, if someone wants your info it can be had, there are paid websites that offer your address,phone,dob,last 4 digits ssn, neighbors, lawsuits, dun and bradstreet rating. face it we live in a very public world, if you drive or vote, all public info. Lexis/Nexis,Zabbasearch are two that come to mind
Just make sure you do not feed the doberman before you go camping, he can handle any problem if needed. between good neighbors, an alarm, local police and a housesitter, i'm more concerned with the wild critters camping!!!
it is hard to participate in a publc forum while hiding behind anonymity,knowing what city someone is located may help to form friendships thru a common bond- camping- that benefit may outweigh any perceived liability.
As someone mentioned earlier, just update your profile so others know who live near one another.

Sometimes it pays to have lived in the same house for 40 years. When we go away for a few days or longer we let at least two of our neighbours know and they do the same. We all know everyones now grown children and recognize their vehicles. We check each others mail boxes and put their garbage out on the correct day and make sure the lawns are kept up in summer and the drive is cleared in winter. If someone is gone for an extended trip, someone will park a car in their driveway so that it looks like the house is occupied. This is just being good neighbours.
