Here's hoping the best of health to our Insider friends who we haven't heard from in a while; before they go the way of our
good pal alrenaissance   and completely disappear. Sending out an all points bulletin/bolo in hopes we can bring back a few for just a brief "hello" or update.


Add some encouragement to spur them on and/or names of others we all miss hearing from:

Last year's deserved winner of Insider of the Year Award - GemPrincess
Master  Listkeeper - lakersfan
Southern Raconteur - eb5147
Travel Writer Extraordinaire - razorbackfan
No Beancounter, this finance guru - stelzer001
Dahlia magnate -tryt53

and other contributors who have been missed;
captbigguy  - Cool cajun
  hsposner  - Tampa shipping honcho
bonzaiflyer - Creator of  "Calling shenanigans"
kroywen    - NYC all the way
techie    - UK IT whiz

I had thought tef6178 had gone into witness protection after I said I might end up in Ft. Walton one day, but he had a nice writeup of JW Indy and the Newport Coast Villas recently, so he's just on the lam.

Missing folks, we promise not to bug you, just give us one of these
:
Best wishes and as always, keep on keepin' on Insiders, each and every one of you

    Also Anadyr has been among the missing most recently, and when you @his name it doesn't come up any more.

    Hi erc and gang,

    Thanks for the wakeup call.  I didn't even hit the snooze button this time.  I've been on a long break, but not gone.  Life got really busy last year, and some things had to go for a while, but I am now getting to the point where I can breathe again.  We didn't do much traveling this last year, so I didn't have a lot to research or to report on, so I spent little time on the site.  Hope some of the others show back up as, and when they can too!  I'll have to see if I can figure out anything about @Anadyr (the author formally known as @SteppingStone) too.  Anyway, give me a little time to catch up and I'll be showing up more

    And his profile comes up "Disabled."  This cannot be good.

    No, I'm afraid it isn't good.

    I specifically left off a handful of names that had either written in previous posts about a potential upcoming leave of absence or informed us privately about a redirecting of their efforts. Certainly they know of our high regards for their contributions and our ongoing desire for their participation and of course we wish them the very best and look forward to their return.

    This thread was more of a call out to folks like try53, jkernitzki and others who added significant insights and color to the forum and hadn't been heard from for a bit (like when trippin' took a hiatus).

    Great to hear from you again tryt53.  Looking forward to this season's photos (I always look around when traveling and have yet to find plants as beautiful as yours and your daughter's).

    How about drchucklesboomboom? After winning the Insiders award for best picture, I've seen neither hide nor hair.

    Yeah he's another good one. I read in Forbes, Fortune, or some other publication (perhaps, The Onion) that he opened up a line of robes for men with sleeves that fit, made a killing and bought an island in Bora Bora .

    Let's not forget one of the original insightful contributor: TJCNY. I hope he is doing well. I followed his advice for several wonderful stays. Many of his recommendations are properties that went up 3 levels in past three years.

    Yes, he had some superb write ups. I think both you and I used his Wentworth overview to help us select that property.
