The Retro RoadMAPS – Spot an Error Get A Vintage Travel Postcard Prize as a Thank You!

Posted on: January 23, 2011

I have just finished adding each RetroRoadmap destination to the RetroRoadMAP by state– but I bet I screwed a few of them up!

Let me know if you find a link to a map that no longer exists, or is broken, and I’ll send you a vintage travel postcard from my own personal collection as a Thank You for helping me make RetroRoadmap a handy and accurate resource for everyone.
The Retro Roadmap Roadtrip Planning Board!

One of the things I do to make RetroRoadmap a convenient resource for locating and visiting vintage retro and cool old places is include a clickable map at the end of each post. This way you can see where someplace is, in relation to where you are, and add it to your travel plans, easy peasy!

But as you might have figured out RetroRoadmap is a one-gal adventure here, so as well as sourcing places, traveling, photoing, writing, interviewing, uploading, editing, linking, and commenting I am also my very own IT Department.

So when the initial RetroRoadmap had too many entries, I started making individual maps for each state. But knowing me I bet I forgot to put some places on their new state map or something like that – c’mon, I mean there are well over 400 posts on RRM, and I do this all in my “free” time after my full time job, so that’s my story.

BUT if you happen to come across one of these boo-boos, don’t get mad, help me out! Leave a comment underneath the post letting me know what happened when you clicked the map. I’ll get the comment, fix the map and send you a postcard from my collection as a Thank You for being my QA department. I will even put the postcard (suitable for framing) in an envelope so it won’t get all mangly in them mail.

Sound like a plan? Plan! And speaking of plans…we’re planning a HUGE RetroRoadtrip to Austin TX in March, but more on that later!!

      Oh George- thanks so much for the compliment- THAT makes it all worthwhile! And it didn’t cost a penny 🙂
