Outdoor Planning
By: Posted On: 2009-06-09

You may have recently seen my poll asking if you would like a website that provides all the tools to plan an outdoor adventure. Listings would include campgrounds, hiking trails, attractions, geocahces, tours, lodging, restaurants, fishing spots, and much more. The site will be fully searchable by location. When you are viewing a campground for example you will also be able to easily find out about museums, amusement parks, stores, trails, restaurants, etc in the area. Listing will include seven day weather forcasts, possibly promotions / coupons, among other information. Yes, you will even be able to post comments. In a nut shell the idea is kind of like a virtual AAA or orbits type website but for those who camp and do road trips.

I have received some questions like why would Scouts be interested in restaurants and hotels. Well you wouldn't necessaryly be, but this site will be for anyone who likes to explore the great outdoors. I am just approaching Scouters to see what you all think of the idea.

If you have not already done so, please take the poll here until June 16, 2009 when it closes.
