    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):

    What if the site I just visited already has a dedicated page?

    Simple, add your pictures and report to the page. If there is an error to the heading information (name, location, classification, type, etc.), please make note and we will correct the heading.

    What information should my report contain?
    As much information as you can collect but don't feel like there is any minimum, we want to catalog all the sites and we as a community can continue to fill in the blanks with reports and pictures as time allows. Ideally each site report will have complete header information (sample above), 2-3 paragraphs about the sites history and current status and 3-4 pictures that accurately portray the site and its current condition. Additionally, the best route to visit the site and any outside references such as books or web links would be a bonus for other visitors planning a trip.
