Is there any way that you can view the shops by location or by states?

Richard…I think some get pinned on the map if you view them that way, but I don’t think it’s complete with all the shops. I agree that it’d be really cool to be able to itemize our searches on this.

I have never been able to figure out what the benefit of the map feature is … completely worthless.

If you go to the shops drop down menu on top of this page, click on it. You get a map which is useless to me here in the NH because I can’t pin down NH shops. I went to the “list” connection above the map and managed to scroll down the whole list. You need to be patient about this, but the list does mention locations of the shops and you can get the posters’ home page. First night I did the 1st 100 shops. Next night, I started over again and leaped frog to the 100+ shops. That’s right -leaped frog by 3 shops which is the default.

My biggest disappointment was that 90% of the shops I visited through the posters home page led me to the sad discovery that they had not posted anything since 1000+ days ago when they showed us their shops. Good luck with that.

Yes there is, but it’s a Google feature, not a Lumberjocks feature. Just go to Google and enter a search like this: mn

That’ll get you shops in Minnesota. Change for what you’re looking for.

That doesn’t work in google. It gives some shops in minnesota, but everywhere else too.

I think the only way you can view by state or area is to zoom in on the map. Then all the
indivdual shops in each state or area are visible.

If you are looking for a shop, jump into you car and start driving through your neighborhood. On a summers day, you will find people working in their garage shops with the door open. See something interesting; stop and strike up a conversation. If you see an out building that looks like it could be a shop, stop and inquire. Many people with shops would welcome others with similar interests.
