Hey all! Long time no talk..

There might be something like this on here already that I just can't find, but after seeing a couple recent posts about Big 5 in Utah, Where to camp in Everglades & such I got an idea..

What if there was a pinned area that was purely about places to go/ pictures from your trip/ advice for others going there, etc.. Maybe even broken down by state.. Each being pinned or whatever.. So if you'll be going through KY, TN & WV you can check out those directories for input from others in a sort of centralized area rather than digging through/repeating random posts from years ago..
For example:

DESTINATIONS (US)
*Alabama
*Alaska
*Arizona
*Arkansas
*California
*Colorado
*Connecticut
(etc, etc, all 50...)

(And I know there are folks from other countries here too but how that'd be arranged would be up to the more knowledgeable.. :? :) )

Or is there a place like that on here already that I'm just completely overlooking?

Hope everyone's well :beer:

Thanks!

Just a random idea, but might be pretty cool/ useful. I know there’s the bottom section with gathering announcements & such by region, but my thought was not so much when as where. I was looking through the Big 5 post & saw some great places/ pics/ info that I was unaware of despite having camped for about a month in Utah in the past.



Of course anything like I’m talking about would be up to Mike and/or Mods to make happen. :bowdown: :bowdown:

There are 675 threads in the sub forum "trips, pics, and hi way tales" which is in the "camping & gathering" section. That's the closest we now have I think. I so think a more specific sub forum is a good idea.

I Love the idea!
And if you ever want suggestions when you get around to filling in the white spaces on your map, Please feel free to contact me! :thinking:

Wood Chippers. :?


Naw, we've just never made it ND yet for whatever reason. I love the desert & my lady prefers Appalachia so we tend to go one of those directions a lot. When we hit that Powerball we'll need 2 houses.

One more vote.... I could delete a couple dozen bookmarks and be a better way to search for specific areas when planning a trip.

Another vote here. This summer will be our teardrop's maiden voyage. We'll definitely be making use of this forum for trip advice. :)

I'm in favor of the idea too. A destinations forum with sub-forums for each state (and Canadian provinces?) could become a really good resource for planning camping trips.

Hope you enjoy your Teardrop and the wonderful people you are about to meet, as much as we have the last 5 years.

We've planned our vacation for the first half of July, so won't be able to do it this year. Perhaps next year though!
