Topic tags/keywords: jocks

Is there a way to sort or look up Jocks by location? I think it would be cool to be able to look up all of the members within my state or within a certain distance from where I live.

Yes, it could be a really cool idea.
I belive you can look at the map now.

Sadly doc, I don’t think there is. I wish there was because I have wanted to do the same thing but I was unable to find an easy way to do it. So, being willing to find a Lumberjock near me, I went through EVERY page of the Shops section looking for someone near me but came up empty handed. I think it we be great if they could incorperate some sort of member search into the system.

Look at the Jocks section. From what I’ve seen most of them have at least a state they are in.

Under “Shops” you will see a map that identifies various LJs by location. Unfortunately, it is very incomplete. For example, there are no LJs identified in Iowa and I know there are many Iowa LJs.

We need to be able to sort the Jocks in the Jocks section by state.

Keep in mind that some LJs prefer to keep it ‘virtual’, as a preference over strangers trying to invite themselves over. What do you intend to do with the nearby LJs that you have found?
