Question Inmate Whitepages?

Call me crazy but has anyone made a "Inmate Whitepages" or would people be interested in being part of one?

The idea is quite simple, for people like my self planning trips through remote areas or just simply out of town we can look up who will be along our route :) in the "whitepages" we can sign up with something like the following
  • Here I Am, PM me if you want
  • PM me and we can grab a beer
  • PM me and let me know your route incase you have troubles
  • Here are my details if you need help

I think it would be a great way to meet other inmates that well we would never meet usually as well as offer that safety blanket knowing other inmates are in the area if the shit hits the fan

If people are interested I could look at making a special website for it, or just a simple thread and I update the first post with people/locations/services offered

PS. Excuse my badly worded post I may be drugged up on pain killers and scotch...

WildDogs started one of these in South Africa and from experience I can tell you it works!!!

A simple website that can be accesed by mobile phone.
You register your details with what you have to offer and the region.

I would put my hand up.

I work for a Canberra hosting company so I can get a domain name and the website, would just need someone to actually build the website. :)

Cheers,
Dash

I'm a network engineer so the hosting and domains etc are all the easy parts, but the coding now that's a different story! However depending on the load might need to get help ;)

I think I will give it a shot but if there is any programmers PHP/MySQL/HTML5 give me a PM and maybe we can coordinate a effort and make it something to be proud of :)

Does anyone have a link to the South Africa one, is it just a thread or a actual website? Maybe we should build one to be global for all of AdvRider?
