March 19, 2021

  • Big update today! I’ve finished creating a second major map, and it’s called the Video Map. The map shows roughly where an SUV RVing video was filmed. Each point on the map represents one SUV RVing video. Because it’s taking so long to complete the existing Adventure Know-How map (which I have now renamed the Location Map), I thought it would be helpful to create a second map that doesn’t go into quite as much detail but is still valuable. So for example, I’ve filmed several videos in and around Arches National Park in Utah. If you go to the Video Map and zoom in on that area, you’ll see several pins in and around Arches. Each pin represents one video. Clicking on that pin pulls up some information about that video and gives a link to that video if you want to watch it. I will continue to work on the Location Map, but in the mean time, the Video Map should be a good resource for those of you planning trips to a certain area I’ve been to. Both the Location Map and the Video Map are accessible to logged-in members via the main navigation menu on the site.
  • I also created a smaller map of all of the Adventure Know-How Bonus Videos. It is visible at the top of the Bonus Videos page.
  • I tidied up a few things and made a few minor edits in the SUV RVing Trip Index.

January 8, 2021

  • I updated (to the latest version) the software I use to create and edit the map, and it broke a few things, chiefly among them the ability to easily add and edit locations on the map. I have a support ticket in, and I’m hoping this will be fixed sometime soon, but it may be several days before I can edit or add locations. The map itself seems to be working still, but if you encounter any other quirks or bugs, it’s because of this software update that will hopefully be ironed out sooner rather than later.
