Amanda Across America[]


As you may know, we will be traveling across the country in the next few weeks. On our way we will visit all kinds of people and places-- we may even run into you. So we've created this wiki to interact with you.

We are asking you, THE FORCE, to suggest points of interest across the USA. You live in lots of different places and are all experts in those various are also experts in the places where you used to live.

Or maybe you're German or Japanese (or maybe even Gerpanese) but you just happen to know some cool places to visit in the US. Maybe you lived here for a while or you do a lot of traveling.

We encourage you to link to photos, video, and outside resources. We'd love to meet you, get to know you.

Ideally together we will create a super-awesome interactive guide to America.

You are THE FORCE. And THE FORCE is with us.

Hope to see you soon & thank you in advance for your expert advice. Mario & Amanda

P.S. If anyone knows how to set up a map wiki, that would be so cool. (Try Wikimapia -ac)
