An OUTLANDER Fan Map

Thanks to MC on Compuserve for coming up with a fun idea for OUTLANDER fans! She's created this map in Google Maps, so fans all over the world can mark where they live.

If you want to try it, look here for detailed instructions.  As far as I know, anyone can view the map, but you have to have a Google account in order to edit the map and place a pin on it.

Look for my pin in Raleigh, NC. <g>

Two things to be aware of:

1) Please don't move or delete other people's pins!  If you move a pin by accident, try to put it back where it was.

2) Make sure to zoom all the way in (using the + sign) before you place your pin, otherwise you might find you've put it in a totally different place than you intended!

I know nothing about Google Maps, so if you have problems using this map, I can't troubleshoot it for you.  I just thought many of you would enjoy it.

Have fun!

Nice idea, I've just added my pin to North Wales, UK.

I stuck a pin in it, Karen! Thanks for letting us know about it.

BTW, I've been swimming in the Books and Writers->Diana Gabaldon Forum these past few days and have a question. How may I become a member and join in the discussions?

Thanks!
