In light of some the funny stuff going on in here lately, with subsequent explanations by Pete and Sam, I got to wondering "who are these guys".

As a relative newcomer to the site, I'd be interested in learning about how the site came about and any other fun facts behind this wonderful means of traveling in my mind while sitting at my desk. My job is in Public Relations in a resort town, so I am frequently wining and dining journalists and travel writers. When I run out of the things I am supposed to be talking about, I inevitabley start jabbering on about traveling in general. I like to ask where they have been, I go on about where I have been; and frequently I tell them they have to check out this site. It would be nice to have a little more background; for my own knowledge and hopefully in promoting the site further.

And by the way, you guys are doing a terrific job with a great idea. That can be said for the community as a whole as well, so thank you all!
