Okay -- I've replaced the photo in my profile with the one you sent, which nis a bit smaller file. If it shows up -- it worked! If not, I'm doing something wrong to add it to our profile. So here goes...

Thanks in advance ...

Pay attention to the size of the photo. Take a look here for details. http://www.airforums.com/forums/f138...tml#post613553

Passed Through, Slept There...

Thanks for asking about the subject. I had forgotten there is a web site to created these maps.

Now for something on a tangent subject if you'll allow me to diverge a little....

My wife and I have long collected refrigerator magnets for the states we visited and stayed overnight. We specifically did not display a magnet if we had simply driven through the state (even if it was a long drive). So that brings up another question - maybe for our Airstream travels we should only display the states in which we've stayed overnight. How do others determine whether they add a state or not?

Here's our display based on various scenarios: 1) Prior to Airstream, stayed overnight or passed through; 2) Prior to Airstream, stayed overnight; 3) Airstream, stayed overnight or passed through; 4) Airstream, stayed overnight.

Which you would display on your avatar?

We mark a state as "Visited" if we consider that we "visited" in the 'stream...We drove all the way across Nebraska, stopping at several places, and in general enjoying the state. We added it to our list as "Visited" even though we didn't spend the night.

How about fixing it up to "lived in that state; voted in this state; college degree in this state; never go back to this state; left in a hurry in this ...."

If I spent money there I visited. That's the low bar for me.

Sorry, It is not working for you. I was able to make this work so if you have the time give it another shot.
