Thorntree has died: https://www.lonelyplanet.com/landing/lo ... -community

I know it's not perfect, but Caravanistan is all we've got left now!

No worries reg. Central Asia. Caravanistan will do just perfectly, as it always did.

My main concern are the other, often less travelled regions.... where can we gather information now?

There are specific boards, Like the HUBB, but nothing that covers all the different aspects.

I would be very happy if we could create a list with reliable Bulletin Boards/Websites etc for different regions.

@Steven & Saule: Caravanistan is still a gem.

Thanks, murg :)

German speakers have several forums left, French speakers as well. In english I guess stack Exchange forum is the best alternative for Thorn Tree, although it's not really the same.

Regionally, I don't know what's out there.

Voyageforum, the most popular and best forum in French by far, has been half-dead for over a year ( reading mode only ).
Thorn Tree proved very useful before the advent of smartphones and travel apps. Just like the guidebooks in paper format. End of an era ?

End of Thorntree makes me sad :(
I hope there is still a future for this type of website.
