    Thanks and welcome in a BIG way to you. actually we're all "founders" here since we are celebrating our 29th day. Contributing to a pleasant environment to learn and share the experiences of travel is how we grow and since we're so new, you can take your place in helping us all. See topics that interest you to learn from or share your thoughts on or help others and in no time you'll be part of a very special group of members called "original member"—we're that new.

    Again welcome and we're all here to help one another. BTW, how did you find us and what's your latest travel interest? Cheers.
     
  3. Hi Randy, and thanks for the welcome. Wow, 29 days and already pushing 300,000 posts! That's quite impressive. I can't recall exactly how I found you, other than that it was a link from a page somewhere in the process of voting the FTA's or researching an upcoming trip to Europe and Israel. I don't get as much time as I'd like to play around with ITA, etc., but I'll drop in from time to time and hope to learn a few new tricks and meet some nice folks along the way.

    Latest travel interest is in trying to learn how to avoid sitting in coach from PEK to SFO next time! :) The way home wasn't bad as I slept (thanks Ambien) but I don't sleep westbound and it was misery. Just my bad luck to get on a flight with a bunch of GS, 1K's who outrank me and people who can fly BC on long hauls. Business class was wide open on the PEK-NRT-SFO connection, but just couldn't risk that.

    I travel extensively for work, but the expense controls we follow mean I will probably never make GS. Home is now DEN after about 13 years out of SFO.

    My best wishes to you and all the members!
    Ron

    rwolfe12, welcome to MP. You will find a lot of good information that has already been posted in the various forums (and some that are really no value added but are just fun). Look forward to seeing your posts.

    Welcome to all the new members. If you have any questions, just ask; at first this place can be confusing, since its a new, different bulletin board interface from what you'll see elsewhere. Once you get the hang of it, both the interface and the people here can be pretty nice. Do check out the "Beginners Guide to Milepoint" sticky at the top of this Newbie forum.

    If any of you want an avatar and don't already have a picture or graphic, visit the Giveaway: Free Avatars thread.

    Welcome to MP from another dog (good to have savydog et al here)! While you are wandering around you'll notice that this place is crowded with cats :)

    Most of the cats are OK, but they do have claws and some bite. However, they're usually pretty nice to newbies.

    The cats here are all purrfect. As for the dogs, some of them are currently in the dog house; and monkeys, well, at least they speak no evil.

    Personally, I certainly would not know; I'm just reporting what he repeatedly claims. Nevertheless, he seems nice and I suspect that he would taste good too, preferably pan fried.
