Hey Mike, I am very frustrated with the forum/site/interactive map! Maybe we need to have more posts to become official? I sent in my $19.99 fee to get a member number and access to the interactive map but I have not seen any confirmation of that other than a welcome post or two! There is nothing on the interactive map for me to see! When you have to have two different log ins for one site, it makes it very confusing. I wish other members or the organizers were more adept at explaining how to get around on the site!

The store and forum are different accounts, although they look similar, they use totally different software so they can't really share a login. So just create an account on the store by purchasing the membership, you will then receive an email with a code and a URL that will link your overland bound membership to your forum account.

Thanks Cascadiarunner, but as you can see, I don't have a member number. From my email above you can read that I already purchased my membership from the store, have an account with both the store and the forum, spent $19.99 and map does not work.

I was actually responding to the OP but I see it's a few weeks old now and looks resolved. It seems clear your membership isn't connected with your forum account yet.

You need to activate your membership, you will have an email from your purchase that says "Welcome to the Overland Bound Team!"

In that email there is a code and a link, you need to copy that code and click the link. Email should look like this:

This is the email I got on Nov. 6. I follow the link and it takes me to the forum "new members start here". No where does it instruct me to enter an activation code.

Hi Slopitch. I am sorry to hear that you never received your welcome email. I am hopeful that @Chris Jones will be able to assist in sorting this out. If you need additional assistance in the future, please feel free to email info@overlandbound.com or post in the Support forum [link].

Is there some sort of waiting period after you activate your account before it shows up on your forum account? I got the email with my member number, clicked the link and entered the activation code. It seemed to work, but I still can't see the member map content and it doesn't show any member info that I can find. I tried entering the activation code again, just in case and it says it's not valid now.
