Posting this with Dunatic's permission ..

Finally got around to creating a page on facebook that I've had rollin' around in my head for a long time. . ..a page for us midwest flatlanders to connect up with other riders when someone drops out of your trip, or ya have a seat open up and ya need to fill it. .. ..a place to advertise yer dates, where your going, and letting eveyone know what kinda riders ya want going with you- you know . .drinkin' or not, hills and climbing or trees and meadows, avvy trained, what gear they have, riding experience, etc.. ..the kind of stuff your going to want to know about someone you don't know and your life could depend on- . .. .. I've done this the past 3 years or so with guys from here off of Snowest and had some pretty good trips and met some pretty kool guys .. but I think there's a lot more riders out there using FB nowadays that may find riders there faster and easier. . . . so . . if ya agree then go ahead and send a request to join and if ya already have a trip planned and have a seat open then post that info up and pray for snow like Buffalo got! . . .thanks guys n gals..

I was interested until i saw Facebook :(

I'll check it out with the wife's FB account tonight. I refuse to sign up. I signed up for LinkedIn in order to find an old acquaintance of mine (which did not pah out anyway) and I'm bombarded with emails from LinkedIn now.

I understand about linkedin .. I've heard some horror stories ..ha. . I guess with facebook it's how you have it set up . .I don't get anything except notifications for people who I've selected to get notifications about with my page . .I try to keep my account pretty locked down as much as possible . .nothings public, friends only can see posts, etc. ..
.. .and one thing I want to try to do is chek everyones profile real quick that asks to join and if I didnt see something snowmachine related I'd ask why they wanted to join . .that may not be realistic as it grows and more people join but I'd like it to to be as much as possible a page strictly for guys and ladies who like to ride and need another rider. . and keep out the maroons who join every page they see that comes along and then posts stupid crap about nothing to do with headin' west . .
. . ..

I think this is a great idea. Facebook is what folks make of it, if you want attention it will give you attention. If you want to be left alone (as I do) it will leave you alone. Back to the topic, we are planning a trip out to the snowys and might have a problem filling all the spots in the truck and trailer. If that's the case this page is where I will go.

Thanks again.

This should be a sticky!

I like the idea too. Like others have said, I'm not a big Facebook fan either. I do have a page but have never filled anything out and don't "friend" people.

For something like this, I would probably look into the Facebook thing ab it more.

I have had some good and bad experiences when friend(s) of a friend tag along on the trip. I think if you could get to know a little more about a person before a fairly big deal like a trip would be pretty beneficial.
