Contributors of the Week 2013-7-08


This week we are recognizing, MrKenFL!

MrKenFL has been a member for over 6 years and 20 weeks!
He maintains one of the most popular files Rest Areas Combined !
I know I received several alerts from this file in my travels this week. This file was super helpful as I get very dehydrated when traveling long distances which causes me to need to stop frequently.

Just last week he has 39 changes and 18 additions to that file.

Thank you for the time and effort you put into insuring this very popular file is as accurate and up-to-date as possible.

Wow -that was a shock !

Appreciate the kind words - fortunately there are dedicated Users who assist me with inputs and further research is made pretty simple !
I could never do it alone since my travels are pretty much in the Eastern states and quite a few of the State DOT sites are behind the curve lately so "raise your hats" to the loyal band of Users who assist me greatly !

Thanks for the award ! I really appreciate it !

Very happy that there's a community of dedicated people out there like MrKenFL who devote the time and attention to creating these files and keeping them relevant.

I recently purchased my nuvi 52 and found this after searching around. So thrilled to have found this as a resource, and happy to contribute where I can as well.

Thanks to MrKenFL

When you drive a 40ft motorhome, you cannot just pull of anywhere, so knowing the location of Rest Areas is important info.

Even if one does not use the facilities, the driver must stop the RV somewhere when he/she has to go. Exits often use up a lot of time and are often difficult compared to the in and out convenience of a rest stop.

Being the only driver, stopping to take a nap or just walk do a walk around check of the rig is valuable too.

Thank you and best regards to you for your valuable service.



Well-done, MrKenFL! Thank you for your efforts!
