Thanks for the comments Wil, please lend me your opinion of any sites. 
I hope to add Sunglow to the list after a visit scheduled for April.  I
feel I need to use a site personally to add it, but if a get a thorough
review on a new site from an experienced observer that would work.  I am
considering putting other observers comments on the page if I get them.

More light pollution, fewer stars (as you would expect). Feel free to
argue my ratings, the whole point is to get everyone's opinions. There
is probably a stupid mistake or two in there somewhere.
