    H.O.T.E.L. Categories - Submit yours

    Please use this thread to submit your categories for the HOTEL project that is under discussion.

    To get the ball rolling on ideas, I came up with:


    • Garage or Shop - we have some tools and such to assist in a repair
    • Overnight stay on our property is okay
    • Points of Interests - call us for ideas
    • Road side assistance - If available, I'll drive out to help you
    • Restaurant - we love to meet Heartlanders traveling though for a meal at a nearby restaurant with RV parking capabilty - call us

    Being full timers we have limited resources but, I'll help if I can.

    Things I could provide:
    Roadside Assistance, If I'm in the area.
    Provide info for the area or if room available in the campground we're in.
    I have a decent supply of tools and enough knowledge to get myself out of a situation.
    Always open for a meeting in a restaurant or we have a grill too.

    We would be glad to help someone find a garage and we have some tools available for use,we also would be glad for someone to stay overnight on our property. We will drive out to help someone if needed and would be glad to meet a fellow Heartlander at a restaurant when passing through our way.

    Zoomable Global map with stick pin of your location like they do on most of the diesel forums like oilburners.net and superdutydiesel

    Lets a member have quick access to the map to see if members are near the area they need help or are visiting, what services a member can / will offer cam be a pop up when a member clicks on that pin.

    Yep, just looked at it and entered my info, never noticed it befor as about all I use here is the forum and occasionally the chat...... until it usually nukes me LOL.



    Jim the components you need are already in place, It just needs to be promoted. I suggest a sticky to the HOP and a request for users to add/ update their position and marker text. A lot of info can be put in the marker text block, look up my marker as an example.

    H.O.P. Would be a good tool to locate members as long as we have air cards or some way to access our website/forum. Some of us (me) don't have that tool while traveling and would have to rely on a book of some sort.

    My home is not accessible with a fifth wheel, but my office/warehouse site is. It will have a 50A hookup in a couple of weeks, and plenty of room. I carry tools on my truck, and have a working agreement with a tire shop and a welding shop. Plenty of info for the tourist area I'm in the middle of, and a new Super Walmart just 2 miles away. Restaurant info, and advice on routes to take, and not to take, and service facilities in the area. For those that may want to drop off their fifth wheel for short excursions, then that is possible also (the warehouse/office site is fenced and gated, and well lit at night) since it is located on a four lane highway-The Great Smoky Mountains Expressway. Maybe a separate HOP map for the providers would help those looking for service when they are not familiar with an area.
