You can use the Member Map feature, and post in the "Trip Planning" section.

We now use our "Rally Point" software, located here: Rally Point

In addition, you can post a simple thread here: https://www.overlandbound.com/forums/forums/overland-trip-planning.21/ Something like, "[location] Day Run" or something appropriate.

To invite members in your area, go to the Member Map, zoom in to your area. Above the map you will see, "start a conversation". If you click that, it will message everyone in the area. I'd say something like, "Hey all, headed out this weekend. Here is a link to the trip thread: [link to url]

Here is the location the start conversation link (Members Only):

The more advanced notice you give, the more folks will be able to get together!

Every time I try to view the members on the map page it displays this message.."You do not have permission to view this page.!"

First, post a simple thread here: https://www.overlandbound.com/forums/forums/overland-trip-planning.21/ Something like, "[location] Day Run" or something appropriate.

With the Member Map, zoom in to your area. Above the map you will see, "start a conversation". If you click that, it will message everyone in the area. I'd say something like, "Hey all, headed out this weekend. Here is a link to the trip thread: [link to url]

Yep, Chris toggled your Member banner on once we knew your badge number. Thanks for the support!
I know this is old, but I’m having the same issue with the Rally Point. Is there anyway my member banner can be “toggled” (lol) also? Member #4802.

I know there are a number of issues with the member map and rally point systems. When I access the member map I can filter for members, but I don't have the option to send a message to those members.
