Van Alert app
« on: May 29, 2017, 01:36:22 PM »
Hey guys, I got this app a while ago.
http://vanalert.com/
It's kind of neat. It was originally started by a guy in Texas to report and help find stolen Vanagons. It has since grown to include Buses. It also has campsites, VW events, and VW repair shops listed in order of distance from you.
You can also register yourself as a driveway camp/help/repair location, so like if someone is traveling and they need a place to crash for the night, or need a place to check something out or do some maintenance they can stop by.
Or if you are traveling you can find other people registered near you.
There is like a messenger feature on the app so people can instant message you if they need help or you can IM someone if you need help.
You can set up your profile so you can tell people what kind of help you can provide.
Members can add events and camping areas too.
There is also some cool stuff they sell too.
I think their club is Texas Vanagons, and they make some cool stuff like window screens and stuff.

I just saw on facebook that they just reached 3000 members.
