Don't ya actually have to sell something or be making money to be a vendor? I do all of this for FREE. Actually it's not free, costs me quite a bit of money every year for hosting, domain names, etc etc..

I rarely if ever look at the 'Trip Planning' forum, which is why I opted to post in the WEST forum where most of my posts are...

*sigh*

On the left side, "Shared Page Name", in that category, you should see the name you used. Mine says, "Strega". I click on that, and it takes me to my map page. Then I copy that URL from the address bar up top.

If you DO NOT have a shared page already, you need to create one here:
https://login.findmespot.com/spot-ma...re/create.html

Your SPOT tracking page link should look like this:
Code:
http://share.findmespot.com/shared/faces/viewspots.jsp?glId=0eq7Lo7Cj9OntoAqhOfUfFEIgcpTQqrcd

What is everyone using as their "Okay" "Help, and "Custom" messages?

Mine are pretty generic, and am hoping to get some ideas to snazz them up.

My Okay
:I am okay! I am on the road and things are fine. Map me at edward.whereamiriding.com...Ed Nelson

My Custom: I am on a rest break, gas stop, or stopping for the night, & you can call me if you need to get a hold of me.

My Help: Me, someone I am traveling with, or someone I have come upon is in need of help. Please send assistance ASAP.

OK: All is well. Follow me at Http://www.WhereIsStrega.com

Custom: Done riding for the day. Follow me at Http://www.WhereIsStrega.com

HELP: We're OK, need HELP. Click here: http://www.Stregalicious.com/SPOTHelp - User: Strega / Pass: Stuff

That URL isn't accurate since it has sensitive info on it but it will help those people on that list talk to each other and coordinate help.

Who's gonna remember that? Rainman?


I wanted a better way to remember that link and to help others so they could send a simple link to family and friends that was easy to remember off the top of your head. Well, this is what I came up with...

WhereAmIRiding.com is now live and will be a work in progress. Looking for some input, maybe adding more info to the registration or edit details page, etc.



If you have a SPOT™ with tracking and want a simple link, check this out:
  1. Go to the SPOT™ site and copy your SPOT™ URL from the "Share Page Name" cell (https://login.findmespot.com/spot-ma...hare/list.html)
  2. Go to: http://www.WhereAmIRiding.com
  3. Register an account (http://www.whereamiriding.com/register)
  4. Fill out the appropriate information. Keep in mind, your 'Username' will be the link used for your subdomain. Eg: http://strega.whereamiriding.com
  5. That link will forward to your profile with your SPOT™ link, simple and easy.
  6. You can edit your profile at your convenience, change your SPOT™ link, profile image, details, etc.
If ya have a SPOT™ with tracking and you can help me by registering and setting up your account and giving me feedback, that would be great!

Thanks :)
I didn't know I could place my Spot Tracker in the tailbag of my Mojavi Saddlebags, zip it shut, and STILL receive a solid signal? (I generally carry it in the map pocket of my tankbag on the WR250R).

Speaking of Spot Trackers, have you signed up for your FREE account at http://www.whereamIriding.com ? Do it and share your location with friends using an easy to remember profile name.

I'm still completely baffled why this thread got moved to the VENDOR forum.

A) I don't sell anything.
B) The site is free. (Always has been)
C) See A & B

It should be moved back to the WEST forum.

Thanks.
