This is a pretty random posting for today, I'm delaying a few heavily opinionated columns for the coming days. Have no fear, real content will return.
One idea a friend and I had was to create our own road-trip trip repot website. This could be forum-based and it could allow users to discuss their road trips, post trip reports from trips taken and include photos and video with the reports. Users would also be able to share camping, hotel, entertainment and food tips and suggestions with other road trip entusiasts. Road tripping has long been a staple of American life and is part of the fabric that stretches this great country together. There are already countless websites concerning other hobbies and interests, such as Beeradvocate.com, skyscraperpage.com, HFBoards.com (hockeyfans) just to name a few.
I don't see how my idea wouldn't have a small shot.
Here's a little taste of the kind of content I am hoping such a site could draw.
