I have an idea for a thread that I think would be really neat. I would like to see pictures of campgrounds where everyone has stayed. Kind of like a living scrapbook here online!! It would be neat to see all the different campgrounds and it may be nice for some people to see pictures of campgrounds they may be interested in staying in.
Ill start it off with some pictures of Whittleton campground in Natural Bridge state park KY. Nice little campground. Dump station can be hard to get to, as it is across a small bridge going across the creek.
This was with our Palomino Mustang pop-up. Put many a mile on this little pop-up!! Great first camper!!

I like that idea. Here is a photo of a nice park we stayed in at Green River, Utah. Perhaps not real fancy, but grassy and shady which was important to us since it was very hot. The sites were large enough for our slide out and our awning. We'd stay there again.

I like the simple state and federal parks with the roomy sites.

Davidson River (Brevard, NC) - enough room to play croquet behind the camper:

By any chance is this Shady Acres??? There aren't too many CGs in Green River, with this possibly being the best, although I prefer the SP. We've stayed here and thought it better than many we have stayed at in that part of the country. Interestesting review of it today, gave it a 2. Different strokes for different folks, I guess.

Although I love the idea of photos of the various parks, pictures add a huge amount of space and cost on the server. This is a free site and I suspect they surely don't need to be paying for a lot of photos (especially the large uncompressed types). I would suggest a link to a free photo site of which there are many instead of takig up the expensive space on this site;s server. This only adds a click and a few seconds to the user and lowers the cost for our hosts.

What you say is true. However (and there is ALWAYS a however), my guess is very few people would go to another site. I would think that if the hosts preferred we not add pictures, they will tell us so.

My pics are not on this server - if you right click on them, you will see that they are on a different server.

I dont think the moderators mind. Because as a non-paying member, you can only post so many pictures. If you pay the monthly fee, $15, then you have the ability to post more pics. So everyone is limited to a certain amount that can be posted. I guess it is the way to keep us from posting too many pictures!! tongue.gif

Kentucky, what "fee" are you talking about? I searched the help FAQ's and found nothing about any "monthly fee." Unless you are doing as Lindsay suggested, having your pictures on some other server that charges a monthly fee.

Speaking of Lindsay's point of "not creating costs for our hosts.....", I got told on another forum not to "quote" posts if your response is the very next post. So far, no one on this forum has had an issue with "quoting" posts......

If you go to your profile, one of the options on the left is "Purchase Paid Subscription". This gives you a "Photo Gallery and Travel Log" for $15/month, though there is no description on what all you get for that.

are you saying that when posting your photo, you actually posted a link to another photos site and the photo that appears to be on this site acutlaly isn't and does not added to the megs of data on this site? I am not an expert on this type of stuff, but I have about 3500 compressed photos (average about 50k) on my site and I have to pay $12/month. How do you do this?
HappiestCamper
They're just on one of my sites (yes, I pay for my sites), and when composing a message, if you click the insert image button (looks like a tree), it asks you for the url. Now if I try to type the code here, it will convert when the message posts, so I'll have to describe it. The code starts with img inside brackets, then the address of the image (for the top pic in my post, that would be http://www.nelsonstore.net/cgs/20080129_005.jpg) followed by /img inside of square brackets.

Anyway, just pointing out that my uncompressed pics aren't on rvparkreviews.com - when you load the page, it's using my space and bandwidth to display my pics. I can't speak for the others.

Photo test sorry

I suspect that this isn't going to work as my pictures on my site do not have a unique url. They are uploaded from my computer onto a page and are part of the total page. Please ignore this test.

LIndsay, LOVE the "Reflection" picture.

My wife has taken over 8500 pictures with our digital camera and that one is the best. Came at the start of our 2008 trip of a life time. It was in a park in the Florida panhandle (we say Lower Alabama) called Pine Glenn. They had a lot of rain and the ponds were very high. My wife saw this shot and had to photograph it. I was limping around having just gotten over my foot surgery. We went all the way to NW Washington state and never got a better picture ... Saw prettier sites, but never got a better picture. Now that I have successfully posted the picture I am thinking that I actually uploaded a copy it to the Review site and that it will increase the megs on their server. Hopefully the moderator will solve this mystery. I donít know how to get word to them.

No, you didn't - if you right click on the pic and get image url, it is http://www.linandnancy.com/sitebuilder/ima...pg7-383x269.jpg

A good way to test this to be sure would be to go back and delete the photo from the website and see if it is gone from this review website. That would determne for sure if the photo was uploaded or linked.

Okay, I renamed one of them and the pic was broke. I renamed it back and it now works.
