Sure hope this doesn't count as spam or promoting anything, I saw this on Macworld (http://www.macworld.com/article/157603/2011/02/lonelyplanet.html?lsrc=rss_main) but Lonely Planet is offering free city guides for the iphone/ipad through this friday mainly in areas effected by this big storm. Thought they might be of help to those planning on traveling to places in the states right now or in the immediate future.
and mods, if this is spam I'm sorry, wanted to help some travelers!
DocNY--Thanks--I think we all appreciate someone like yourself who is trying to help out those stuck or with travel problems/issues because of this big winter storm.
The other mods and I are more concerned with long-term types of spam that treat the site like a place to put personal commercials rather than links to short-term fixes designed to solve major travel snafus.
Members that post more regularly, and definitely respected members, always get a lot more leniancy, so you don't have to worry about anything being flagged DocNY!
Smart promo by LP. They did something similar last year when the volcano erupted and it worked really well!
