    My name is Megan Peterson, and I work at an Internet map-content start-up company in Boulder, Colorado. I just perused your blog. In general, we’re trying to bring information about camping (among other interests like caravanning, fishing, etc.) onto the Internet (Google maps, for example) as well as onto GPS devices and in-car navigation units. Our initial focus is on the US & UK. Our site will be structured and dynamic, driven by our users who will create and edit content (like a Wikipedia page). Also, our site will be free to all users, registered or not.

    I’m very interested in having you participate in our closed site review occurring in several weeks. Essentially, we’d give you login information, have you create a user profile, peruse the site (i.e. the camping locations), and give us detailed feedback. Also, we will enable you to invite others who may be interested in our site.

    Ideally, you enjoy and contribute to our site, and blog about it. We’re hoping this is something you’d be interested in.

    Thanks for your time. Please feel free to email me with any questions. I look forward to your response.
