Wow - awesome contacts today!
I have just built a new website over the past few weeks providing detailed information, GPS mapping etc of walks in our city. This has mostly been started because my father-in-law has made many bush walking tracks in our city over the past 46 years and I wanted to get these online for people to enjoy.
Today - the councils for the two areas of the city where he has constructed the tracks hosted a morning tea to honour him for his work and present him with a special plaque. They have also said they will name a track after him - so a nice honour.
The beauty of all this however is that two of the main area Councillors were present as were some of the senior Parks Staff and I got the opportunity to show my new website and talk about what I was doing.
They were very impressed with the site - the ideas, integration of technology etc and are keen to work with me on further development and of course linking into their own websites etc.
They said they have sold 5000 walking track booklets alone in the past 5 years - so think of the potential traffic of these alone as they use the site for various walks.
Anyway - its just an exciting development for me and this fledgling but exciting website.
Just thought I'd share.
Thanks again to everyone for their help and support - and of course to the WA system for making it possible.
