Hmmm... I had no intent to violate the ethics of the board. I was merely stating a fact of life. Right now the concept is merely an experiment and I wanted feedback as to how interesting and useful it might be to people. I'm sure there are links to sites posted that have ads on them, including the one you referred me to. I had not previously seen that one, so that was good info to have. Yet, it too, is hopelessly out of date because it is not maintained by a real person. Still would like some feedback on the site itself. And at the present time, I have not taken in one penny, so there is no monetary reason to drive visitors there.
Of course you don't know me, but I'm an addicted hiker, and thought it might be a great service to provide. Then I learned how much time it would take to pull it off, and realized that I couldn't do it just out of the goodness of my heart long-term.
