Please - Use City or Campground and State

I just dove in to answer a routing question and after writing a long passage found out that the question was between two other locations. I don't mind being as helpful as I can, but I almost gave this poor sole explicit instuctions to get him someplace he probably has no interest in getting to - ever.

Yes, I agree. There are too many places that have the same name. City and state, campground and state, Hwy number and state are all helpful.

Along those same lines! "How do I get to ???", "Best route to ???" They give no idea as to where they are coming from. Both ends of the trip make directions much easier.

Problem , exists with people programing their GPS as well, they find the city name and forget to check the state, or double check the route.

Find themselves in the middle of the day, if the notice at all, saying " Why are we driving directly into the sun , at noon , when we should be heading east."

I open posts by their title. I agree, be specific.

Don't use 'Help Needed' or 'Hwy 26' or 'What would you do?' as the title.

Even better are threads with titles such as "Best Route?" without giving a hint as to which hemisphere they are talking about.
