Rivet Tell the community where we are... and join

Hi all of you,
this morning I woke up with that idea.
I do like to meet other airstreamers on the road but when it happened it,s mostly due to the hazard.
So why don't we let everybody know where are we at a time, for how long, giving infos about the camp we're staying... to allow anyone around to join others.
Right now I am in Alouette Campground near Montreal, so if anybody is around, and try to find a spot to stay for few days, he'll know that he can find an AS and share some friendship...

Hope you got my idea, and hope it could work...
Thanks.
have safe trip.

In the Blue Ridge Mountains

From August 13th till the end of the month we'll be at Highland Haven Airstream Park along with several other 'Streamers from Florida, the Carolinas,Virginia and elsewhere. We always have visitors so come on up and enjoy the cool evenings, beautiful scenery, bright starlit nights and great company just off the fabulous Blue Ridge Parkway. Happy trails

I had suggested Airstreams with CB radios all use Channel 14 to meet & greet other Airstreamers passing by. This is the channel used at International rallies.

Another mechanism is to use the Airstream Forums Members Map. Normally folks use this to show their home location, but no reason you could not update your traveling locations as necessary.

Ham radio geeks have a great way to know where everyone is in real time via APRS, Automatic Position Reporting System.
All you have to do is plug your GPS into a ham radio with a built in TNC like the Kenwood TH-D7. The GPS reads the satellites to figure out where you are then tells the radio. The radio blabs your position with your call sign to the rest of the state or neighboring states depending on your settings.

Interested folks can see your positions by way of;

An APRS enabled ham radio like the Kenwood TH-D7 or

A laptop with mapping software and the above radio or

A laptop with Google Earth, an Internet connection & aprskml.jar running or

An AvMap G4T (Geosat 4)Navigation system and the above radio.

Note that choice #3 above does not require a ham radio.

APRS is used by search & rescue teams, gas ballooning enthusiasts, managers of trucking fleets, suspicious spouses, etc.

I, my dog friend Cromwell, and Chummy will be at Wyalusing State Park for the entire month of October. I will be the volunteer camp host. This park sits on top of the bluffs overlooking the Mississippi River and affords spectacular views. In October the colors are out of this world. Your best chance for getting a spot would be during the week but there are a few open non-reservable spots for the weekends. If you are planning on being anywhere in the area the extra miles to this park will be well worth the drive and you get the added benefit of camping with Cromwell, Chummy and myself.
