Mmerali,

Your articles are amazing. Ever consider sending them into cruisemates to put them up on the main site? Keep it up, and I look forward to reading more of you articles.

They are pretty good but the one thing I disagree on are the packing lists... i think the amounts are pretty minimal. Only 1-2 pair of sandals???!! thats nothing for a vacation!

Thanks for the positive feedback. And to the sandals, I tried to keep everything to a minimum, and like I said, it changes from person to person.

I've sent in several articles but never get so much as a "p*ss off" in return. However, Kris did post the first timers one I wrote in the sticky. There are quite a few people on here with significant writing talent that never get recognition or opportunity to share their works. I agree with another past member of this forum (some of u know who i mean), in his thought that the administration is pretty biased and shows a good deal of favoritism in all of the forums and not just this one, but what can u do?
