I follow TT every morning when I wake up around 5am and throughout the day. When I look at the GPS tracker and see one of the members has updated their location close to me how do you contact them? It would be great to be able to say hello in person to a fellow TT member that you have read, followed or would like just to meet in person. I am not very computer savy but surely would love the opportunity to say hi in person to any member. For example, Donna M. shows as 19 miles from me on the GPS tracker and a short drive to say hello would be wonderful. Thanks for any help drivers.

Instant Message capability was removed a few years ago on here.

Either start a topic as you did with, "Hey XXX, I see you're close", or add your text or email address into your bio somewhere.

Sometimes it was being used in an inappropriate manner.

Thanks Pack Rat I'll try and do that as I would be honored to meet some of the drivers here if they get in the central Florida area. You sure would be one.

Aside from "inappropriate manner" (harassing/spamming/trolling), it was used to ask questions that would be better asked HERE in the forum.

We have MANY MORE PEOPLE that just lurk/read/learn - and NEVER POST. If discussion were held in private messenger, we would be DENYING EVERYONE VALUABLE INFORMATION they could learn from.

And that's THE REASON WE'RE HERE.

Cyber stalker is more like it. Every time I take a vacation from posting, she hunts me down on FB. Do they have "virtual restraining orders"?

My FB contact is in my profile too - I've had people from here approach me for advice elsewhere - and unless it's something embarrassingly personal, I tell them to just post it here on TT.

The COMBINED EXPERIENCE OF THE MEMBERSHIP - can give multiple POV's that you just cannot get from one person. That's why we do things "out in the open" here - so EVERYONE CAN BENEFIT.

She says she doesn't DOX........ But if she's a FB Stalker, that may be as bad? I don't know because TT is my only social media.
