Cool, nickyskye. From the list of how many waymarks and where as of about 2 weeks ago, it llooks like they are getting a good start. This could really have some cool uses for passing along local info - long distance hikes, for example.

just hope it won't get overrun by commercial crap - there are 93 Burger Kings listed, supposedly by particpants, which I find suspect.

Tickled you like the site.

mjjj, I had the same reaction to seeing commercial listings there, immediately my hackles went up but I can see the use in it too, to a limited degree, when travelling. Considering there are 11,220 Burger Kings on the planet, yikes, 93 of them listed seems pleasantly understated, lol.

vronsky, Thanks for the moving, lovely song.
