What is tricktraker.com?
 Tricktraker.com was originally thought of to be used to find good girls for hire off the street but has turned into a bit more.  It's really about finding near by fun places to be, in realtime. We have added focus on party marking and location finding.  Ways to tell your friends that this is the place to be at this time.  As your friends can also at some point hook in to be tracked and you can see were a group of them are at any point in time, or you can make new friends that happen to have a party near by your present location.  In some cases with weed parties that are also marked they can still use the police tracking system to keep safe.

We still need more money
The entire project so far has been created with just small donations.  Just think what we could do if we had money to spend on it.  There is nothing we couldn't do.  We are still looking for stake holders in the project.  At present we are looking for an additional 165,000 USD.  We estimate this will be enough to get us started or at least continue development for about 12 months with added consultants and engineers.
