    I expected some response to my post but not to the extent that has occurred to date, What a great bunch of people.
    I am ready to be a provider for the following, no special order.

    Coffee always,
    Truck repair (in depth Dodge) everything else we can do together
    Complete shop heated and cooled with tools and air to change tires,
    Parts locater,
    Local campground finder,
    Towing of trailer if necessary,
    A place to park with 50/30 amp hookup (after some shuffling).
    and finally after your mind is at ease and you are convinced that everything is going to be ok dinner, a beer or stiff drink.
    There even is an apartment to stay in if the trailer is not functioning.

    I know that Jim is working on a system so that we can put this in place and be able to help the folks on the road.

    BMW motorcycle owners have a similar tool available to members of the BMW Motorcycle Owners Group. They publish an annual book. There's is 4x6 inches and about a half inch thick. All the members are listed with a phone number and geographic location. It might say something like 20 miles south of Grand Rapids Mi. It is listed by city of residence. Then each member has a list of alpha letters that identifies what they can provide. Some examples are: C for tent space. B for spare bedroom, K for coffee and conversation, T- tools available and so on. I was a member and listee for 10 years and got only one emergency phone call. It works for them and could also work for this group if enough members will sign up. I suspect that group had 5 - 7,000 members in the US and Canada. No Names are listed and no email addresses. Just a city and phone number with the codes.

    Good luck.

    After reviewing a few other programs, the track I am on now in terms of data listed will be similar to what you state BMW-MOG does. No name, no email addresses.

    State, City, Phone, Services

    This will keep personal information released in the public to a minimum (phone number without name), yet, keep the list effective.

    I work at least 60 hours a week, but would that be okay.??
    to add to list or is there any thing that would require a person to be available.

    What about if your on the road ??
    used cell numbers or only home city numbers??

    We are full-time now which limits what we could do, though we do have a truck, the tools we carry, some know-how, all of which could be handy from time to time. I'd have to think a bit about being called for help... we are working on the road and my hours can be wacky (I do global remote technical support). However, an e-mail would always be OK. Or, a forum area where people post their needs and the members cooperate to help out.

    If we could help we would, but as with most here I'm sure there are times we might not be able. It's a great idea though - I'll try to remember to watch this thread.
