I agree with Linda, I think this would be a great idea, but a pretty big
project. I have no idea of how to put together a FAQ (Mike Maul posted
me about one some time back and, like a total idiot, I had no clue what
he was talking about). What about this idea...if Linda and a few other
people are willing, maybe Linda could do the rides for one or two
regions, I could do the rides for another one or two (I happen to ride
mostly in SW and W regions, but that doesn'nt mean I'd have to do those)
and maybe another person or two or three could do the other regions. If
Mike or Steph or someone hasn't gotten totally fed up with my
FAQ-challenged mentality, maybe he/they could help get it into FAQ

What do y'll think?

P.S. I agree about putting together a basic "form", too. Good idea! Is
this democracy in action or what?
