Need assistance from drivers to scout roads & share photo spots

I am reposting this as a general call for help in scouting roads and sharing photo locations.

1. Yes I am on all the forums and they all have some posts about fun roads to drive on.
2. Yes I am aware of the website that list roads that are fun as well.


I am attempting to build a website dedicated to drivers and the roads we love to drive. The site has LOOPS not just a listing of roads. Additionally I am trying to share locations to take pictures with your car or bike.

I plan to continue this project on my own but it will go faster with help from the community.


EXAMPLE of a completed loop with photo locations
http://www.norcaldrivers.com/drives/...ahoe-loop1.php

Information I need please if you help:

Fuel stops (towns)
Food locations (if any good places to stop)
Road conditions (short description like "mixed pavement with some rough patches"
Short paragraph on the drive with some details

Would like to have - Photo stops on the drive to link to ad add to the photo locations page.
- Location
- Image of the car at the location


Please email the data along with a Google map to norcal.drivers@gmail.com


Current photo locations database
http://www.norcaldrivers.com/photospots.php


Current list of loops, roads and photo roads that need scouting
SoCal loops - http://www.norcaldrivers.com/routes-socal.php
SoCal and NorCal Loops - http://norcaldrivers.com/scout.php


Feel free to tell buddies in other states. The goal is to keep expanding this.


Thanks

Adam - norcal.drivers@gmail.com

Not to take the jam out of the donut, but isn't this what the BMW App does?

Great idea. I've listed some on the app, but it seems like there isn't much awareness/use of the app. I will have to figure them out on Google and post them here. Mine are south central PA (not as exciting as NorCal!), so scenic in a farms/mountains/foliage way.

Do you mind making them and emailing me the google maps?

If you can, could you include the information as listed above?

The app is cool but small screen and frankly I like to have printed instructions on drives as well. GPS fails sometimes.
