I revised my TravelinWithUs.com Website

Hello all,

I am pretty much finished with my conversion as I stated in my conversion thread and I am just waiting a week or two before we take off on our first major voyage. I have been doing some trip planning and have been bouncing all over the web looking for truck stops, rest areas, campgrounds, dump stations etc to stop at on the way. I found a lot of information on the internet but it is scattered all over the place. So, I decided to revamp travelinwithus.com which I originally intended to be a blog website for our family to share our traveling experiences. I still am going to do that but I moved our family's blog to a sub domain and decided to utilize travelinwithus.com to create a resource for traveling. Sort of a one stop shop per say.

So far I have added some mapping functionality to the site that will display all the rest areas, Flying J and Pilot truck stops and all the rest areas with RV Dump stations. I am planning to add a map for campgrounds and then do a map that displays all these items on one map. I added a social type community component to the site and I also decided to let other families create a blog on the site if they decided to as well.

I haven't publicized this anywhere other than this forum as of yet. I really have come to like reading and participating on this forum and keeping up with all of your projects and have come to respect many of your opinions. If you would, take a look at http://www.travelinwithus.com and give me your input. I know there a some here that are fulltimers and some that are considering becoming a fulltimer and I am really interested in your opinions.

Let me know your thoughts and let me know if you can think of other resources that you would like to see on the site. Keep in mind that this was a thought that I had about 3 hours ago and I have only been working on it since then so the site is no where near complete. I just wanted to get some input as I am working on it.

Thank you for taking the time to take a peek and I am anxious to get your feedback.

-Brandon

Re: I revised my TravelinWithUs.com Website

Looked at your site....... Looks promising..........

Some things to consider........

Starting a list for .... Skoolie Friendly RV Campgrounds......

Free or cheap campgrounds ..... Low cost. Pretty sure we have a list started on skoolie.net.

List of Wal-Marts for overnighters.. not all Wal-marts are RV friendly/ or have city laws and or restrictions. Pretty sure this is posted on web too somewhere.

Will be nice to have all info available on one site.....

Good luck on your adventure/trip and best of luck with with web site..... I'm sure it will grow as the word gets out......

Thanks for the input, it is greatly appreciated and great suggestions. I have added two maps, one for Walmarts and Sam's Clubs that DO allow overnight parking and one for stores that DO NOT allow overnight parking. I will begin working on free or cheap campgrounds later today. I have to set the site to the side for a few hours and get a couple other things done.

I see you registered on the site, thank you. Did you get the confirmation email? If not I will manually activate you. If you didn't receive the activation email please let me know, you may want to check your "Junk Mail" folder as well.

You are welcome. I love doing data manipulation and web development. Maps are cool especially when you can get the info you want easily.

I have another question. Currently I have the community set to "Real Name". Do you think I should leave it or change it to display the account holder's username instead? Myself, I kind of lean toward username as it seems a little less intrusive.

USERNAME, No need to have one it you are not going to use it...... Where else will it show up other the your registration page?

Username it is. I have changed the setting on the site. With the configuration set to display username a user's real name will not display anywhere. Not to public or to friends. I didn't realize that it was even set to display real name until I saw your account profile. Privacy is an important issue to me so I think setting it to display username if for the best.

Again, thanks for the input.

Re: I revised my TravelinWithUs.com Website

If you could activate me manually that would be great...the validation email didn't have a "link" (phone) and I can't copy and paste it......its too much to type in on my phone
TIA
