I'm on and I didn't even ask how to do it. So there.

(In fact I even gave myself a custom avatar and put a pic of my oldest bike in my listing.)

I believe you're right. I went to school just up the road [go Hokies], and had never heard of Rural Retreat.

It only took me about 5 tries to figure it out.

Great idea, khatfull.

ah, very nice. I just finished architecture school at Tech in '09, brother just finished there this May. Always glad to find another Hokie.

Mine is up. I did initially put it at my address, but then changed it to my old workplace (Wal-Mart). Feel free to go there and vandalize/steal/burn it all to the mother-effin' ground.

First Canadian, Score! Sorry my avatar is taking up most of the province, I was having some re-size issues.

Fake it. I rarely give correct personal info on things like this

Well, I'm on there but truly in the middle of nowhere. Can the marker be moved a little closer to where I really am?

Amani576 09-03-10 09:58 AM

Just go back to it, hit the edit button and move it. Save it again before you leave.

If you zoom in you can fine tune your location.

I would consider the facillitator list but the CL market here in San Diego is rather outrageous, good deals are few and far between and get swooped up quick.

banjo_mole 09-03-10 10:27 AM

Sorry, I spent the last several mintues trying and I'm having no luck even putting up an effing marker. And I'm a computer-literate 21-year-old.

How did you get there? Where does that highway run to?

khatfull 09-03-10 11:36 AM

I gotta tell you...

For fun I let Google give me a route from my house in MN to jtgotsjets in HI. The route dumped me out in Washington...then note step 15, LOL!!!!:

Hahaha!!!! Those guys at google are HIGHlarious!

:lol:

I saw a similar thing a few years back playing with the routing, I was told to kayak across the Atlantic.

noglider 09-03-10 12:12 PM

It used to say swim across the Atlantic.

Help.

The web page Adding and Editing Placemarks

says

Quote:

To add a placemark to your map:

Create or open a map.
Click http://www.google.com/help/hc/images/maps_Bmu.png. Your cursor changes into a placemark icon with an "X" crosshairs. The crosshairs indicate where the placemark will fall.
But I don't see http://www.google.com/help/hc/images/maps_Bmu.png except for other people's placemarks. Am I blind? How do I click it?

LesterOfPuppets 09-03-10 12:29 PM

First you have to click on the Edit button in the left column. Then I usually just right click on the map and click on add placemark.

Then click the Done button when you're done.

noglider 09-03-10 12:37 PM

OK, so I'm not crazy. The directions tell me to click an icon that does not appear on the screen. WTF are they thinking? I didn't think to right-click. Thank you. I added my mark. I'm in Maplewood, NJ.
