I suggest that you sort that spreadsheet by state, and then PDF it before posting it on the Web site. Think of the XLS as your source code. Before you know it, you might have dozens of copies running around the Web all pointing to each other, all with errors you can do nothing about because someone else "took over".
The sorting by state suggestion is because I think like this:
Hmm, I'm going to XXX
Wonder if there are any cool sites to see there?
Anyway, it's a good idea. Pretty discouraging that there aren't any metalworking sites of interest in WA except Boeing Museum of Flight and the Boeing Everett plant, neither of which really qualifies IMO.

------------------------------------------ WW2 B17 in restoration at MEacham Field in North Fort Worth Other historic aircraft and small aviation museum. Last time I was there they were setting up a machine shop, looking for someone to run the machines on a voluntary basis.
---------------------------------------- - Midland-Odessa CAF/WW2 Museum at the airport. Aircraft were not accessible last fall, but normally are. B17 and B24 (?) in restoration, about 20 nice historic aircraft.
--------------------------------- Petroleum museum on I20 Everything you wanted to know about exploration, drilling refining.
MAJOR BONUS: Jim Hall Chapparel wing opened in 2005. Jim's shop is in Midland. All the cars (1 each) are on display, including the infamous Sucker Car. I will go here every time I'm in town.

PDF, by state: That's probably marginally readable on an 11x17" piece of paper, Errol, but it's not very readable on a 19" monitor. Also, your "contributor" column wrapped to pages all by itself, pages 5-8.
Ditto the alphabetical PDF. Oops!
Perhaps it would be better to make those portrait style with narrower columns and narrower margins while using a few more pages. Just a thought.
In Ft. Worth : American Iron Horse Motorcycle Museum WWII B17 at Meacham - was at Greater South West - pre DFW - but was fixed up by the good guys (the REAL good guys - those that fixed them in the war!) and put on flatbed trucks for Ft. Worth.
Midland-Odessa - area - CAF/WWWII Museum and Petroleum Museum.
IIRC, on I30 - between Dallas and Ft. Worth - the old toll road - there is a Firetruck Museum.
Lufkin,Tx - Down here there is the East Texas Museum and Texas Forestry Museum. Have a very nice - and special Zoo on the north loop of town. Birding trails .....

I finally got around to visiting the New England Air Museum near Bradley Field in Ct. this year.
A lot of unique aircraft. Also some antique cars and military displays. My son particularly enjoyed the PC computer flight simulators they have set up.
While you are in the area of the air museum, Old Newgate Prison makes a nifty side trip. It's very close by. The prison started out as a copper mine in 1705 and was later converted to a prison in 1773. Spectacular views from the back of the property so try to pick a clear day.
I also enjoy the Illinois Railway Museum.
My wife usually ends up dragging me out of there. I could wander around there all day. Loads of all sorts of rail cars, locomotives, trolleys and electric cars of various vintages in all different stages of restoration. I was let into the machine shop for a look-see just by asking one of the volunteers working there.
