Thanks AZ and thanks to scooter7 for filling in Rhode Island for us and to 98wing and wingsailor for providing support in North Carolina.
So we are left with only the following 18 US states still looking to be filled in by someone..
When someone needs it, I'll give a short how-to on printing out whatever you want to carry with you from the on-line helpers directory.
Remember anyone listed can be an online operator/dispatcher for anyone else who
is on the road and in trouble, lost, whatever. It doesn't need to be anyone in your immediate area and they don't necessarily need to provide local help themselves. Just print and carry a few (maybe 10?) numbers for your approximate route area for contact purposes and whomever you reach can act as your "Help agent" to get you help, either from the online list, Digby's list or even making help posts and PM to the general membership in your behalf or Googling up nearby resources.
I am one you can call and I'll find you the best solution we have available at that time and make sure you get help. Hotels, service shops, parts needed on the road, meals banks, whatever you need. Dont ride around with a book that starts getting outdated as soon as you print it. (unless you want to, of course).
Call me from Arkansas if you need me. It doesn't matter where you are too much. I'll find the nearest help you need, if possible. So will most, if not all, of the folks listed.
That's what it is all about isn't it?
