    Have you added your location to the VFRworld Member Map? If not, why not take a moment to do it now? Just click on <a href="http://vfrworld.com/forums/vbgooglemapme.php"><u>Member Map</u></a> at the top of any page, then click on Your Entry. Zoom in on your location, and mark your spot! Don't worry, no one will know your address, but it's a great tool for finding out who's in your state, or even your town!

    Not only will your marker show up on the map, a new link will also appear when you post messages called Find Me, which will let other users instantly look up your location!

    So get closer to your VFRworld companions, let us know where in the world your VFR is!

    Got mine listed way back. It's still there. lol. Not many (from on here anyway) in KY, but there ara a number of vfr's in KY. The last ride I was on was with another VFR owner and we must have seen another half dozen or so that day. We were stopped resting at one point and 3 more pulled into where we were, then a couple more rode by and we passed one or two more on the ride home. It was an awsome ride I tell you.

    Here's a cool tip. You may have already noticed it, but if not, note that there are three buttons on the map - Map, Satellite, and Hybrid. Try clicking on Hybrid and zooming in on your favorite member. You'll get a nice surprise!

    Note that this doesn't work for all locations, because there are not satellite photos of less populated areas.

    I tried zooming in on me, but it doesn't show my place since it uses some default address I guess. It's pretty close, though. Maybe 1 mile or so from where I live.

    Great feature! Thanks for bringing it to our attention for those of us who had not used it yet. Interesting to see where we are all over the world! Cheers!
