Thanks Frogs! Newbies unite! Any other travels planned for the rest of the summer?
Besides my weekly trek to Brooklyn from Ohio ... for work, I am surprising my husband with a trip to CA to visit the Reagan Presidential Library and staying in Santa Monica to play on the beach and see a little of LA. First trip for the two of us to this part of the country so looking forward to the long Labor Day weekend visit.
Welcome, Nathalie! It's been exactly one year this week that I've been on MR Insiders, and the rewards have been immeasurable. The travel tips, keen insights, camaraderie, and laughs make this the only social website I make a point of checking each and every day. Glad to have you aboard!
Oh now I find the welcome thread!! Guess I'll bring my hello over here.
You will no doubt find out who the trouble makers are on here as well as millennials and geezers as we get to know one another.
Notice the large font for us geezers!!!

Interesting categories IAHFLYR. I'm not a millennial, and not quite a geezer yet, so I guess that makes me a trouble maker.
Wait! Your name's not Andy? That's going to cause a bit of confusion. Mind if we call you Andy to keep it clear?
On a serious note, it's a nice change. Welcome to MRI.
Perhaps the thing I like best about this site is being able to get (and share) advice on places to visit, what to do, where to eat, and most importantly, which Marriott to choose. There is a wealth of travel knowledge here for the asking.
bejacob I know, I know, I'm rocking the boat by not being an Andy. You can call me Andy if you want!
Thanks for sharing what you like most about Insiders. I'm excited to dive in!
Nah! Nathalie fits you better anyway. We're glad to have you with us.
You'll get to know a lot of these folks very soon. Who knows, you might even get to meet a few in person. There are quite a few posts with pictures of Insider get togethers whether that is just two members or a whole group. Those are always fun to read.
