    That's why I use the R versions. Bigger pages.

    I'm a web developer. Also interested in compiling some of the useful info on this site. Like the camping grounds especially. One of the systems I build ( https://www.jamroom.net/ ) is for building communities.

    It might work well for this type of setup if I could find a way to link up the user login to vBuletin.

    Maybe put it on a subdomain if there is interest (or lower url).

    resources.gaijinriders.com OR
    gaijinriders.com/resources/

    Next year the wife and I want to go slowly wandering for a few months so that kind of info could be real useful.

    Don't think it would generate any revenue though.

    Why not simply create a "qualified" Members Only Library of Garmin Route Files? This way people can simply download the route for the area of interest and go, no messing around with maps required.

    Or a TAG feature, not sure if that exists in vBulletin so posts like ( http://www.gaijinriders.com/showthre...SA#post_143325 ) with links to Camp grounds can be found in one place.

    If that post was tagged 'Camp Ground' then there was way to click that tag and have all posts brought up in a list, it would be useful.

    (I've got that one bookmarked in my browser.)

    Maybe tags for 'Garmin Route Files' and 'Precious roads' could be useful.
