This topic, https://permies.com/t/61589/Travelling-Permaculture-Quest , got me wondering if a  'travel' sub forum under 'experiences' might be helpful?

I think this comes up occasionally where folks just want to see what's available out there before a trip, permaculture places where they could stop and visit, spend the night or not...get a tour, etc.  

None of the sub forums under 'experiences' quite cover 'travel' in that way.....


experiences

   volunteer offerings
   volunteers

   jobs offered
   jobs wanted
   wwoofers

I've been wondering where to put that thread! I think a travel forum is a good idea.

77:  the new forums still need a whole lot of thread shuffle

78:  to fit the format for that category, maybe there needs to be three forums?  "travel destinations", "travelers" and "travel strategies" ??

Maybe a more simple/condensed list would work just as well....such as 'woofing', 'volunteers', 'travel', 'jobs'?  I always thought that 'wwoof / organic farm volunteers/interns/jobs' was too much all as one forum......now maybe there are too many individual options to fill?  

Bringing your thoughts from the other forum suggestion thread to this one....

 

So, maybe we should set up some rules for creating a new forum:

1:  there needs to be at least 20 threads that already exist on permies that could be added to the new forum.

2:  the person suggesting it will create at least three new threads that don't already exist on permies.

3:  somebody on the staff is willing to create the forum and help with shuffling threads so we don't start off with an empty forum.



I haven't looked for threads yet....and I doubt there are twenty each if 'travel' were split into three, more likely to find twenty for one 'travel' category.  
I have planned to start one, for travel plans in June, probably not likely to start three new ones though

...sounds like a forum to put on hold
