Umm, how I am reading this: It is Josh's comments that make this forum unwelcoming to infrequent posters because he right in what he is saying and that is what makes this forum better than others?@josh, assuming you're stopping by facepalming that this is coming up again, as someone who has read the forums for a few years now, I want to share that you have been in the top 5 of commenters who made this forums unwelcoming to those of us who post less frequently. Ultimately, however, when you and others were driven to be negative, it was when you were absolutely right and someone was foolishly refusing to listen. That slight occasional edge wards off the ludicrous that make other forums less attractive.
Yes, there are others who can provide answers, but Christine's (Off2neverland) responsiveness and attention to detail in her tour plans went above and beyond what most experienced members can provide.
I agree 101% and with a million exclamation points !!!!!!!!!!There are other people that can do the kind of thing that Christine did sure. But she had an amazing knack for details and timing that I have never seen anyone else come close too. Yes, you can get books and go to web sites that will give you "a plan" but she could make "your plan" just right. That was a big help to someone like me who cannot even try to go with the average plan. She and Brenda and Pam are missed.
