    I have searched everywhere and cannot find an introductions thread.
    Am I missing something or do I introduce myself here?

    Perfectly fine to introduce yourself here. Welcome to Milepoint! :)

    Here is the new glossary page in case you want to look up terms you may be unfamiliar
    with: http://milepoint.com/forums/pages/glossary/

    Feel free to ask any questions you may have!

    Thanks for the welcome, sobore.
    The link to the glossary is really useful!

    I've just found milepoint and am really enjoying the layout of the site and friendliness of members.

    A few months ago I finally made oneworld emerald (all self funded) and am enjoying the benefits especially the FLounges at Sydney and Melbourne.

    Looking forward to my fourth visit to the US in October!

    Thank you jmrich1432. I live in the Snowy Mountains in New South Wales.

    We are doing a quick mileage run down to St Kitts then meeting up with friends from Florida and doing a road, rail and flying trip through about 20 states then a Caribbean cruise... and I can't wait :D

    They are the only F lounges I have visited so far and I was really impressed. The service and food were superb, not to mention the spa treatments.

    Sounds like a fantastic trip you have planned.

    Welcome to MP, Status Traveller. I'm another Aussie, resident in the UK. As a OW Emerald, you'll find good coverage of Qantas here and of One World in general here.

    Have fun, and be prepared to learn a lot that will interest you more and more.

    Greetings from the sunny state of Florida and welcome to MilePoint! I've gone cruising many times to the Caribbean- which line will you be sailing on?

    Welcome to MilePoint!
    If you have time, stop by and say hi at the FL* Lounge. We have nothing to do with Florida or AirTran, but we do have a great time.

    Welcome to milepoint. No worries about where you'd like to introduce yourself, anywhere on milepoint and our members will find you to say hello. Snowy Mountains? I've visited Cabramurra and even trekked a bit in the Park though did not have time to reach Mount Kosciusko (?).

    Again welcome and reaching Emerald self-funded is a feat to be proud of—congrats. I'm lifetime Ruby and i try not to let anyone know that!!! Cheers.

    Thanks
    We will be on the Carnival Valor - I'm looking forward to seeing the US themes all over the ship.
    But I am not expecting the food or service to be as good as our previous cruises on Celebrity and Princess.

    Thanks for the welcome Randy...
    I spend a lot of time in Kosciuszko National Park and have walked to the top of Mt Kosciuszko (the z was added in 1997 by the NSW Geographical Names Board to reflect the correct spelling of the Polish explorer who the mountain was named after). For those who don't know, Kosciuszko is Australia's highest mountain at 2,228 metres! Oh, and as you probably know Cabramurra is Australia's highest town.

    When I get back from the US in November I will be almost half way to QF lifetime silver (ruby)

    And thanks to everyone else for your warm welcomes.
    I know I am going to enjoy being a part of milepoint.

    I'm seriously thinking of coming to the the oneworld Mega Do. Just have to talk +1 into making 2 trips to the US in as many months!!! ;)

    Greeting from another Aussie...

    I'm just up the road in Canberra..... and I'm with the *A so there are two reasons to hate me...:)

    Just back from my 3rd trip to the US this year... (target shooting.. and I got sponsored for one of them..:eek:.. Amazing..)

    Usually all self funded here too... and just hit Gold Elite on NZ again! Love the benefits!
