"I have started using Google Earth buy placing a stick pin at each campground (on the actual site in most cases). I can add notes or an image when I get around to it. The entire list can be exported as a .kmz file and I can open it on my iPad/iPhone if I want."

Thanks for the tip Hi Ho, I like it, especially the export capability to open with the iPhone.

thanks again Hi Ho: the funny thing is when I clicked on your attached file and opened Google Earth it surprised me that my house location was there until I realized that your file just opened Google Earth from my computer and just overlayed your file onto my saved locations and maps. Of course this wasn't a permanent situation as I didn't save the new information.

That does bring up a VERY IMPORTANT POINT. If you decide to share info in this manner, create the .kmz file and send it to a friend. Have them open it and make sure you didn't accidentally expose private info such as the exact location of your/freiend/family houses.
