Lightbulb Iíve created a camping trip organizer I want to share!

Hi all!
I am new to this forum but I love camping very much! Have been doing a lot of camping and fishing in Northern California. Being a software engineer I got myself a hobby to create a tool for myself and my friends to make it easier to organize our trips. We have been using it for a year and I decided to share it with other camping fans. Just thought if we like it other people might like it as well.
Here it is: http://kempout.com. It is absolutely free and I am not making any money on it - just wanted to make camping planning easier. I would appreciate if you could tell me what you think about it and if there is anything that needs improvement in your opinion.

Thank you and enjoy :)

I checked it out. One suggestion would be to incorporate a link to http://forecast.weather.gov/afm/Poin...29165649414062 a weather site like the above that will tell you what the weather conditions will be.

Weather is the most challenging condition for many times of the year when I camp. Next challenging is people. The guy who pulls in to the next campsite to you with a motor home, a noisy generator, and four yelling kids at 10 at night can wreck a trip in a hurry. Also there are the hillbilly shooters that think the acre 100 yards from where you have set up in the middle of the desert for wildlife viewing is a great place for their assault rifle practice. The list is endless. Don't camp with poison oak, ticks, fleas, rattlesnakes, bears, burros, or coyotes.

So, as a short evaluation--keep at it. Software is the answer to all things not hardware.
