I liked the last four shows - neat to hear stuff about Airstreams - anything Real nice job on setting up the show. But - yes here it comes - and you did it first thing in the morning -you dangled me a toy and took it away.... ......

Nice new Map - Love when the whole of North America is included - Funny thing is - it happens alot - the software does not recognize our Postal Code.

So if the intent is not to include us try dropping the top part of North America off then Map - also known as Canada (a little sarcasm - yup!) that way we won't waste our time entering several postal codes thinking we typed it in wrong. Or which I am sure it is the latter - if you know it would not work - just put a little waiver that says your working on the Postal Codes.

I read somewhere in an article about Northern BC maybe in the blue buret that us Canadians don't seem to be as patriotic with "Canada Day" - we may not go over board on our flag waving and making a lot of noise and stuff - but we sure are proud of our Country.

Sorry but it just gets a little discouraging to always be included in the "Map" but can participate in the "Map". Like all those shopping sites that say wow buy our stuff what country are you from and then the good ole' zip code box spits you out on your tail Another one is ebay - tee hee International sellers (United States Only)

However I may have been disappointed with not being able to put my little sticker on the map - good thing I know where I live

Ya'll have a nice day now ya

Thanks for catching that Uwe.

For people outside the US, just click on the Not in US link under the zipcode. Then you enter the name of your city and it should bring it up.

It's kind of fun seeing where everyone is from.

Lets get this map full!!

Hope everyone enjoys Episode 5, it was a lot of fun!
