Forum planning

OK folks! It's time to go live!

please put your suggestions/comments here in this thread so I don't have to prune stuff out from all over and I can find stuff here.

What would you do differently or add? This forum is gonna be full of stuff from everybody and it needs your input to make it work. Might as well make sure everyone is as happy as possible with the way things are organized.

How about Financing your trip or making money on the road? It'd be intersting to see how many people actually work along the way instead of just saving for years or whatever beforehand.

This promises to be a popular forum, John.

how about a calendar just for long rides where other people are welcome to join in

heard of a couple people planning trips across the TAT who couldn't find folks to ride with. long trips like that don't really have a specific regional forum and the main "regional forums" page is a place where not a lot of people notice stuff.




cool idea for a forum!

Oh, so like a "I'm heading out, who wants to go" type thing? That would be in addition, I would think. Maybe a subforum.

That is pretty much a Regional thing right now. It doesn't have to be. Hmmmm.

Lots of information is available here, just scattered, like you said, John. Seems to me, quite a bit would need to be stickied. Like Jeff's Central America tips. Requirements for various countries as to needed paperwork and such. Maybe vacinations needed.

Maybe just a place for people to ask questions covering this kind of thing.

Edit: Oh, shit, its a done deal! I thought everyone was still talking about it.

I hope to be able to condense a lot of this stuff into HoW submittals, if they pass muster with JohnJen.

just an open comment about The New Forum. I hope people realize that trip planning also includes that actual destination. Yes, for many type A people, they seem to need to have everything figured out, what to take, what to pack and all necessary precautions taken. Butt, some folks like me realize that there is a Walmart in every town and my AmEx card is kinda like a get out of jail free card, (only you gotta pay it back). What I really want in my trip planning is to find destinations that are not on the local chamber of commerce's website, places even many locals don't know, events that are so cool or small that they are not well advertised, and food stops that cater to moto idiots like us.

Regionals is useful for locals talking to locals, but I'd like to see local info included in the trip planning threads. That's all I got for now...

Let's not get to carried away with stuff that really does belong in regionals. We had this discussion back in Ask Baldy earlier. This forum is about planning the trip, not where to go. You're gonna have to pick your own destination, then come here to figure out how to make it work. If we start putting all that in here it is gonna get unmanageable real quick, and we will be duplicating efforts .
