    This is a fun way to visualize who might be nearby. Click on the link and then click on your location to add a pin to this map. Navigation is via the regular google maps methods. Add your username and even a picture of you want. Since there is no login or email address required, and it uses Google maps, my assumption is it's a safe thing to do. I set the map up but have no afiliation with any of the providers. Just thought it might be fun.

    Well, I'm glad you can smell bacon.  According to the map, I'm visiting my next door neighbor.........  Yeah, I guess it would be kinda neat to see where everyone calls home.   So far, 9 people have placed markers.

    Thanks!

    That's all I needed was to know the word place had to be hit.

    The word "place" wasn't in the picture the first times I tried it.

    On my computer, if the word "place" was there, the top 2 blanks were out of the picture.

    I had to scroll up to expose the top 2 blanks.

    Then after filling them out, scroll the map box down to find the word "place".

    Well---I'm in now.

    At least you are a savant when it comes to smokin'

    Savant syndrome   sometimes referred to as savantism, is a rare condition in which people that are computer dumb have one or more areas of expertise, ability, or brilliance that are in contrast with the individual's overall limitations especially great BBQ.

    You have to pan up and down on the map using the arrow buttons in the upper left corner to see the entire form to be filled out, scroll up to put in your screen name and what not, then scroll back down to see the "place" button.

    OK, On the map. Just in the wrong location. It placed me in the middle of the Great Salt Lake. Will not let me relocate it or delete it.
