What is the issue with logging in? Not following that.

Re: The map and Google Maps
Yes, anyone with an account can totally change the map - anything they want (or do unintentionally.) We had a go with that a year or two ago with people changing colors.

Anyway, if you want me to try - send me the info.
Basically your Name and year and trailer model.
Note: All info is public. And ANYONE with an account can change it.
Another note: Apostrophes and quotation marks don't work.

Info needed:
Name - As you want it to appear
Description - Whatever you want - see the map for what others have done
Model - 5, 13, 15, 17, 19, or 21
Location - where you want the pin, it can be located very precisely if you provide the actual location

Hmm...might it be not wanting a Google Account?

I have a Google account which I just signed into to look for baloons on their map. How do you find the Escape baloons online, on the map? I couldn't do it.

This forum - click "Owner's Map" at the top.

You and Nancy are on it, Dave and Cheryl aren't.

I guess that could be it. I just thought everyone had one. There is definitely lots to be gained, with nothing to lose.

But, if someone does not want an account, there are lots here that would post their details on the map if they like.

Oh, that. Thanks, I got it now. --I'd gone to the Google Maps on my internet home page online thinking that big thing would also have the Escape baloon locations.

Wondering now why Dave and Cheryl are not posted.

There are some privacy concerns.

I guess with posting on the internet, here and other forums, I don't have these concerns. There is nothing I ever post that I would care that anyone see, from friends to big brother. I have heard complaints on Facebook, but not with Google.

We do all have to have our own level of comfort met though.
