    I am already getting confused trying to follow all of the different threads popping up, who is riding with whom and when everyone is leaving :). I have been using wikis for a while now for collaborative projects and I am thinking that a wiki would be a perfect tool for setting up groups and then for group trip planning. I put together a wiki with spots for groups organized by date, camping vs. motel lodging, and pace. Right now it is just a rough template that can be filled out. I am going to leave it completely open to be edited and modified by anyone who wants to use it. I put in some of my information in the July section just to give people an Idea of how I envisioned it working. Feel free to join the wiki and edit away (you'll have to make a wikispaces account and request to join this specific wiki). I'm curious as to how this will take shape if people choose to use it.

    Here is the link to the wiki:
    http://tat2010.wikispaces.com/

    If you're new to wiki's here's a short vid that explains the concept

    Let me know what you think of this idea.

    Recent changes to the wiki:

    Tavis,

    I am not doing the TAT this year, but this is a GREAT idea! You should see if you can link this to the TAT site.

    Cool thing you have there. Might be just the ticket for the single riders to group up with.

    Hell of a good idea.
