I thought most advertising for prostitution was done online these days? So no need to stand by the road in the cold and rain, or work in a brothel, even legal ones like in Germany. Just stay in your own flat or rent a hotel room.

You are talking about escort. It is premium leauge of prostitues. The job includes knowledge in certain domain, knowledge of foreign language and ability to look good. If a healthy (and powerful) man needs a gal to be accompanied with at the social events with additional services afterwards, he visit (e.g. a facebook) site providing escort services. Escort girls are usually beautiful, relatively well-educated and motivated by finding a rich man that would buy them car, house as an exchange for potential descent. The ugly (I know this is not correct), bad-educated and lacking-hygiene ladies desperately waiting for sweating truck drivers is something else.

I believe so. Apparently the "tirowki" have there own clientèle too. Making a tour on a Polish "sociable advertisements" website, I can tell that many of these "escorts" are not really expensive - starting from 80 PLN, but can go up to 800 PLN for an hour. Usually, you go to them - they "work" in a flat, you phone them, they give you an address, you come there, arrange the price, take a shower, and see the girl. Some can also come to you as well, it's usually more expensive though. I prefer by far this "discret" approach of "hustling", than to see impressive numbers of almost naked and vulgar girls waving at me in the shoulder of main artery between major towns, with crazy dudes stopping in the middle of the road . Saying that, I am not a "consumer" myself.

You guys sure seem to know a lot about a subject you take no interest in....

Despite the border control does Die Kaiserin's Germany take in all immigrants or are some of them rejected?

Just wondering. A mere 9000 have entered Denmark in 10 days thanks to her insanity and the border police are unable to do anything about it....

Corvinus here

The "Hungarian camera woman kicking and tripping migrants" story made big news in the biased, migrant-abetting mainstream press (while no word about savage migrants throwing stones at local population for example).

Shortly afterward, the Tunisian news portal arabesque.tn has identified the migrant "tripped" by the camera woman as Osama el-Abd el-Mohsen, a Sunnite islamist and vivid supporter of the Islamic State terror group. In a 2013 facebook entry, he praised the IS murderers and terrorists as "warriors fighting a holy war".

The poor refugee has safely arrived to Munich with his children:
He is now said to threaten to sue the camera woman since due to her action, police (whom he was fleeing from) caught him again and took his fingerprints, which will reduce his chances of remaining in Germany.
Not true. Osama Abdel-Muhsen Al-Ghadab was a football coach in Syria. He got a job in Spain now. Source (and many others).

Travel mapping

A little update about the "travel mapping" project which replaces the old clinched highway project.

Quote:
Travel Mapping is still very much in development, but we welcome users, both those who previously used CHM (the now defunct Clinched Highway Mapping project) and new users, to submit their travels for inclusion in the system.

To use the system, build a ".list" file showing the segments you've traveled on the highways we've included in the project. This process is substantially the same as it was in CHM. CHM's process is described at http://cmap.m-plex.com/docs/getstarted.php.

[...]

more: http://www.aaroads.com/forum/index.php?topic=16397
A highway browser and an official email address for sending list files are established now. Stats are still outputted in the user log file because a proper front end is not yet implemented.

Highway data updates are in progress. Europe is already updated except Poland, Sweden and Portugal. Austria, Germany, Hungary and Norway are up-to-date since yesterday .

Thought I'd share this. There are even examples from Zwolle. Enjoy!

You can log your traveled highways there. The original website owner left without a notice and nothing was ever heard of him again. So they restarted the project at AA Roads.

The original project was called "clinched highway mapping". That means, you could mark highway sections which you've traveled. If you've traveled the whole road (e.g. the German A7), you've CLINCHED the highway. There was a stats about the number of clinched highways etc. Here's mine: http://cmap.m-plex.com/stat/travsumm...u=km&sort=dd#t.

I'm used to study road maps since I was 6 years old. I sometimes drove little detours just that I had driven the road. I remember that I tried to persuade my parents driving on Slovenian A2 when I was 11 or 12 years old but they didn't agree . Yes, it's crazy, but that's me .

I joint CHM project two years ago and mapped all my travels of my life. When I was not sure if I drove there, I didn't mark it. But there were so many gaps... So I tried to get there just to clinch that damn road.... I've traveled more than 30,000km of these roads (mostly first category road of each country plus E roads) meanwhile .

The website is not updated since one year now but some enthusiasts started a discussion on aaroads forum and finally started a new project. An associate professor of computer science hijacked the data and implemented a new database. He traveled more than 120,000km (mostly American highways), he must be really crazy . Other contributors just update "highway data". That means, they check if a new section was opened, rerouted, closed etcetera.

The new project is still in development but there are some nice features compared to the old project, e.g. you're traveled maps are shown on a Google Maps layer and you can combine it: example .

It's currently on a temporary server but they want to move it to a different one with a suitable address: travelmapping.net (could happen "soon"). The new website still lacks a proper front end but it's in development.

The same happened to me. The file was in a wrong format and Tim (the owner of the old website) didn't response. Jim (the programmer of the new website) is totally different. He always answers when I've sent him an updated file. Minimum "Got it".

btw: I've traveled 96.9% of the German Autobahn network related on the length and I'm dreaming of 100%

You can upload your highway GPS traces in a .gpx format to Openstreetmap you know.

I have no GPS traces . That's something different, e.g. I think there's no stats how many km of a road I've traveled etc.

My short-term goal is to travel every damn national and first order regional road in Aragon. This includes this section of road that barely enters the region, but is even recognized in the log (And hopefully I'll be driving this on late October). It will be hard to achieve this, especially the roads in Teruel province. At least I've tortured myself driven the Carinena-Fuendetodos section of A-220.

CNGL, do you intend to clinch all national autovias and autopistas in the medium-term future? What % of those routes, roughly, have you clinched already?

I'm thinking about a mini trip around the last weekend of November.
I managed to find decent priced flights from Munich to either Alicante (which I would combine with Valencia in a trip) or Athens. Both are direct flights.

What do you think? I know both are nice destinations.
But which has better cards in terms of weather?
