Where you are from map.....

This was mentioned on another thread, and was actually something I thought about doing before but never got around to.

Here is a map that you can pinpoint where you are from - you don't have to put your exact address in - even point to the nearest big city - so you can still be a bit anonymous.....

https://www.zeemaps.com/map?group=253605

If anyone has any problems adding yourself please let me know and I can do it for you.

Instructions:

Find your location on the map (click and drag to go any direction and zoom in and out using plus and minus on left or use the scroll on your mouse)
Click Additions with the down arrow
Chose option Add Marker - Simple (or detailed if you want more than your name)
Enter your username (using your username instead of a nickname etc helps us tag members to threads by using the name tagging system)
Enter your location (either enter city and state or by clicking on your location on the map till a red star shows on that location)
Preview it and submit if correct
