Also, I saw gardyloo's name in the US section.

If you write to them, they'll send you the new Australia guide book or a gold guide of your choice. Can't wait to see what they quoted us as saying!

Actually, I just clicked on the top of the list of posts where it says "were you quoted?" to get to the article. and gardyloo is under Seattle, not US.

Neil -

I'm shocked that you're not listed and equally surprised to see several completely unfamiliar names.

It's OK, MelnQ8. Well deserved.
I did get a quote last year in the China guide (but no freebie, curses).

Neil you're entitled to a freebie guide for being in China. Didn't you read my post? I got mine a few months ago. You were quoted many times in China.

Neil, I'm sure it's not too late to ask for your freebie.

Thanks for posting this, Sally. I was pleasantly surprised to find my name on the list. Can't wait to get a new guidebook--where shall I go next?

I was shocked, too, that you, Neil, didn't get mentioned here with all your great advice. Guess they figured they couldn't put someone in BOTH guides or else they would be accused of playing favorites.

Aw, shucks! My forgettable comments. Oh, well, I'll keep chipping in my two cents worth when it feels right.
For those on the list, way to go! I recognize several names who helped me plan our trips. Thanks again.

Congrats to those who got quoted

Margo and Neil, we would have voted for you if we had the opportunity! It is quite a surprise that both of you were missed

Cheers

Steve and Andrea
