Try Google Earth

I think using the internet mapping feature is a great application for the Airstream community. Thanks for setting this up.

Here is a slightly different topic that has nothing to do with mapping airstream members. If you want to experience a REAL trip, try Google Earth. Go to http://earth.google.com/ and get the free version of Google Earth. "Google Earth combines satellite imagery, maps and the power of Google Search to put the world's geographic information at your fingertips." After you download and set it up (super easy), you can literally FLY from one location on the globe to another. Try it, you'll LOVE it!!! It's not real time imagery. Some of the satellite pics are several years old and major cities are much more detailed than rural locations but, all in all, it's an amazing application. Fun to plan your next trip from a satellite fly-by!!

I was all set to delete cookies... and what do ya know I'm back in CA. I think I had to turn off the computer first to see the changes. Maybe I'll show up somewhere else too, because I clicked a bunch of different stuff thinking it wasn't working .

I got really annoyed with opening this site and haveing to refresh every page because IE was storing everything in it's casch. I went into options and selected "check for newer version of the website every time I visit". That took care of it.

Cool Please join the MAP

I've recently been looking at the Member Map in the upper right corner. There aren't very many members posted when you really think about it. The personal identity issues don't need to be scary for the same reasons it is possible to obscure details in your AirstreamForums profile.

Accuracy is not mandatory and it may be desirable to put the pointer on a different feature in your general area. What-evah.... but it'd be nice if you'd wave as the we fly over at 50,000' while cruising the website.

Please consider putting yourself on the map if you haven't already done so. Thank you!

I have upgraded the Google Member Map. It now shows your avatar, username and allows you to type a message of up to 256 characters. I am working on figuring out how to make the avatars show up bigger but at least we are headed in the right direction. Now if I can just figure out how to show different colors for courtesy parking and more profile details in the pop-up quote box!

Cool, Andy, but how about a different color flag for "abnormal" members?

I see there is an added feature on the member map. Now there is a little square in your bubble if you are online. No animation.

I think it would be cool if the bubbles would light up, or flash on and off.

Look for lots of new features with this plus a new map where rallies, campgrounds, etc will be posted. You will be able to click on the rally and see info about the dates, a link to the calendar item to see the details and who is going. On the campground pins you will see some info and a link to the review section for that campground.

Over time I really want to evolve this feature. I think it is a great resource for everyone...
