Re: host clearing house?
i pitched an idea similar to this when i first joined to one of the mods, but was shot down for reasons like what dave posted, and i do agree they are valid concerns. a lot of members have a LOT of moola tied up in their rigs.
my idea was more of a life line kinda deal rather than a place to park though. more for those traveling through an area and running into mechanical problems and needing assistance. things like being able to point other members to reputable shops, pick and pull salvage yards, etc.
however, a combination of the two would be really cool. ive been hit up for info by other members visiting my area for things like specific places to eat, and close to town bike trails and i was happy to help. id also be down to help people just passing by if they needed a place to park as well. ive reached out to quite a few local members (as well as non local) and was well received which i really appreciated, so im happy to pay it forward.
maybe instead of listing out our personal info online, we could just have a thread with each state listed out and members in that area willing to lend a hand if possible. people in need can pm said member for info. if member has time and feels comfortable helping they can shoot person in need their phone number and see if something can be worked out.
