Preliminary ideas for the web site management group of are to provide...

The members of the Outdoor Industries Association in Virginia constitute a market for a pooled web-site service (since few have such service in 2004).

This web site provides a major communication link among all members of Rural System, Inc. and its many groups and it opens the gates to users, buyers, and members. It provides an e-commerce catalog, access to land, services, and products, serves several memberships, provides a creative space for presenting ideas, but also for listening to the ideas, interests, and needs of potential customers.

Much of Giles' web site (../ or www.RuralSystem.com ) may be wrapped into the site. CoalFusion or related software may be used with The Trevey. Distance learning will be conducted from the site. With competent work from an aggressive sales staff, this may become a major site for coordinated forestry, fisheries, wildlife, and wildland-related equipment, products, and services. It links land purchase and sales to sophisticated analyses (for The Realtor as well as the potential owners) (e.g., virtual (photo) tours with services such as IPIX and GIS "flyover" software images) and sets the stage for cost-effective future land management involving the diverse units of Rural System, Inc. Advertising contracts will be sought, but major efforts will be made to acquire a percentage of sales resulting from orders originating from this site (perhaps with services of websidestory.com). A highly integrated system of field data collection, entry, recall, mapping, and report generation will be a major goal.

Note the news update (maybe weekly or monthly for deer and more frequently as things get into the season: Example: Flash! Of 36 hunters from all over the United States, 20 of them got their deer on opening day. Measurement of the harvested deer's vital statistics indicate that conditions are ...

Note the Chat Room and also the collection of the BEST Stories tips and experiences.

There are books to purchase, people who will answer your questions, glossy color brochures etc.

A literary group is likely to form using the concepts in StoneSoup.com.

Here you could add an event monitor to publicize and describe the upcoming attractions: classes, field trips, scouting trips, BBQ's etc.

Financial estimates are not specific and are included within System Central.

Perhaps you will share ideas with me
about some of the topic(s) above at

Maybe we can work together
... for the good of us all
... for a long time.
