Thank you doesn't seem like enough ....
I've never experienced anything thing like this couples message board. I just wanted to say thank you to EVERYONE for their honest answers, pictures and taking time to help all of us "newbies". I know there are more of you but in particular: KarenON, Jeffmon, SuzyQ, liquid, Randymon and cigardude are a few I recall right now.
I have a HUGE notebook now with maps, pictures, tips for packing, ideas on clothing items, foods and drinks to try ... etc.
Couples feels like a family I never knew I had. Looking forward to no longer being a newbie. :)
