Bumping.

I added the location for the BPL GGG in Feb. I used a yellow pin. This should help you see where it is and where carpooling solutions may present themselves.

I added my dot denoting my location.
I am in Ben lomond which is near Santa Cruz.
I am trying to get the time off for the BPL event. I had a blast last year and really want to hang out with y'all again.
Should I be able to get time off work, I have a Dodge Dakota with a camper shell. In other words; I have room for one more and plenty of room to spare for gear.
Sure hope i can attend. Will find out later this week.
Sucks being a wage slave these days (read: should have stayed in school!). Hope we start building homes again (Plumber) in Cali soon so i can have a disposeable income again.
Hope to see y'all again soon!

This is a great idea.

I would love it if people can access my BPL profile, if they would at least have to log in and register on the BPL site first.

...but it's a cool idea.

Well it only links to your profile here. Those usually have no real useful(to a criminal) information. No real risk.

Note. We are now starting another page on the map. Do not repost yourself on the second page.

I think we will have to break up the map by region. Otherwise we will get multiple pins by one person wanting to be on every page.

Lonely in Japan.

I think the world is going to sink under the weight of all those US UL'ers!

Where are all you Europeans?

Here's a new thread for this, so the instructions are at the top. Be careful to follow the instructions carefully; a few people have renamed the map as themselves, or have ended up in the Pacific Ocean!

Okay, here we go:

1: Log into your Google account (this is necessary).

2: Go here: http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?ie=UTF&msa=0&msid=217710768001213283190.0004ac9ffae6ae244e691

3: Click "Edit."

4. Click on the blue pin button, and then drop your pin.

5. Edit your info in the pin's pop-up detail bubble (not somewhere else): I'd use a non-specific location (e.g. No—I don't actually live on Jeld-Wen field), and include a link to your profile for PMing, rather than email, as to not encourage the spambots.The map is set for anyone to edit, and anyone with a link to see.

Also, please be careful not to drag and drop someone else's pin elsewhere—for some reason Google allows this even outside the edit mode.


Let me know if anything needs changing. All credit to Bryce, who thought to make this.

bump with the info.

Please read and understand the instructions before attempting placing yourself on the map. People keep changing the title and wind up not posting anything to their location. Please include a link to your profile too please.
