Blue Beacon Locations

I would like to see Truck Washes(Trailer Wash Out) locations like Blue Beacon, and small local wash out locations. That would make my over the road trucking job a whole lot easier sometimes.

Here's a POI someone started. http://www.poi-factory.com/node/19636
This might get you started. It is the Blue Beacon website with locations.

How about urban ruins? (sometimes known as ruin porn)

I've been both fascinated and dismayed regarding the number of buildings abandoned, vandalized, stripped, etc. of their character and history. In many cases, these buildings have already been torn down, or are so run down as to be but shells of their former glory. So while we can see them at all--even in ruins--I'd love to be able to be aware of some of them.

For example, anyone familiar with Detroit probably knows this building, the Michigan Central Station, as arguably the most famous in town http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michigan_Central_Station

Poi's

I am a OTR driver. My wife and I carry a "porta-potty" in the truck for obvious reasons. We would love to see a list of dump stations available to the public in which one can get a big truck. Some of the Love's and Flying J/Pilot stops have them but charge an outrageous fee ($10.00)to dump a 2 gallon potty.

I realize this will take a lot of work but it sure would be helpful.

Thanks,
RRooster (Ragged Rooster)and Copper Top.

Jig saw puzzles

http://www.puzzlewarehouse.com/
These people did a very good job on a custom puzzle when I sent them a picture of mine. They are kind of pricey,but it was a birthday gift. They stock many puzzles for around $10.
A good source for used jigsaw puzzles is Senior Citizen Centers, often for 25 cents each.

I second this one. The few times we have used B&Bs we enjoyed our stays but when it gets time to look for some place to stay they are hard to find. We never plan our stops far enough in advance to look them up ahead of time so end up in a motel by default, if we don't have the camper on the back.

Couple friends of mine....

stayed in a B&B somewhere up north and brought home more than memories... bedbugs. Yuck!

I wuld like to see all

I would like to see all Hyatt Hotels, worldwide.

might do just that!

I might just take on the task myself. I already know of over 200 bridges which are no longer in existance. I will go through them, State by State, then compile all 57 States as one big fiel. My own personal POI already shows a big improvement, since I edited it to no longer shows many of the bridges which have either burned, been torn down, rotted, or washed away! Ewe...It is an easy task, but time consuming.

I would like to see Super 8 Motels (US) and Quality Inns added.

Imperial Oil/Esso "Key to

Imperial Oil/Esso "Key to the Highway" card lock fuel locations in Canada and USA

RV boondocking locations

RV boondocking locations that gives the coordinates.

I was on a e-group for camping and someone ask if there was such a POI. It sounded interesting, but also seems like a challenge to put together.

It would be nice to have for those times when you need to take a break from the more commercially oriented locations.

RV/Truck Washes

Car washes large enough for a motorhome would be nice. They probably would only be found listed as Truck Washes though.
Occasionally you pass on that is self service with a elevated ramp along the wall. I make a note when I see them, but I don't see them much, so it would be nice to have a POI for them.

Can you define "Truck friendly"

Laundromats aren't something there's a lot of a call for. Perhaps the best resource for 18-wheelers would be the truck stop web sites. Several do have coin-op laundries and then so do a lot of motels. But then just because there's a big parking lot doesn't mean the surrounding streets are good for big rigs.

Gun Shops

I see there are a couple of POI files for Gun Shops but not for NY and would be nice to have the whole USA for vacation. I have our GPS setup to alert for Quilt Shops for the wife would be nice to do the same for Gun Shops just to take a break for me and look around. My only rule for stoping at Quilt Shops is they have to have a comfortable spot for husbands to sit.

Combining POI folders

Is it possible to combine folders?
Do you just copy one and paste it to the bottom of another in Excel?
Is there a size limit?

files or folders?

Files go in folders so yes it is possible to add one file to the end of another. Using Excel let's you see what is being added to the bottom of the original file.

As far as concatenating folders, no you can't do that because of what's inside the folders. You can copy (or move) the files from one folder to another which puts all the files in a single folder. but you can't just paste them together.
