    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!

    I'm a member and my badge number is #7134...but it's not allowing me to view? Do I need to register my badge?

    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.
