    And thanks....I think it would be a really cool thing to start but credit goes to Tomorrow's Treasures for the original idea...I saw the ball and decided to run with it.

    I like the google maps idea - but I'd like to integrate it with the forum through posts. That way people can write stuff and it's easy to find...and if it's not people can ask questions and the OP can clarify....

    Maybe we could start a new forum, each post starts with a city name. If that
    city comes up again, then the new post should go in that city's thread.
    We can link to the google map in every post.

    I can also hunt to see if there are hacks that can integrate map(s) directly with posts.

    what do yall think - any other ideas?

    thx - M

    I think it is a good idea not to sure how you would go about doing it though. I asked about Cornwall once and was given a fabulous link to stuff in the area. I ended up in Montreal so it did not help that time but I will have it next time I am out that way. I think it should be like what I did, I am going to point a, is there anything in the area of point a and I am taking route XX to get there is there anything I should be on the lookout for or any off route interests I may want to look into. I think rather than a forum just when people plan to travel ask in the Off Topic Area or General Photography. Have been here now a long time and rarely are there questions about traveling or what one might find in an area. So I would suggest people when they do plan to travel post where and when you are going and if someone who has been or is from the area can offer up ideas.

    No rush Marko. We're patient people (well, at least I am). It'd be cool, but we don't need it right now. Take your time. I'd hate to stress you out...

    I see your point A.L. but I think I'd like to try this in its own dedicated forum.

    If it doesn't work (meaning few posts) I'll simply delete that forum and move the posts to OFF topic or something.... Maybe the existence of the forum will encourage people to post more travel spots

    I know that I'll sometimes PLAN new travel according to a good photography spot...
