HU meeting in Viedma 12/2003

hola,

I use this website since 1999, and I have met a lot of great people and a lot of things I have done wouldnt have been possible without this people.

The HU meeting in Viedma Argentina 12/2003 was my first travellers meeting organiziesed over this website. It was fantastic, meeting Oskar and all the travellers. It was a small meeting, and I enjoyed talking to travellers on the road. In Europe there are to many people on the travellers meetings and most of them are not travelling any longer.

I can understand that Grant has a problem earning enough money to keep this website running.

But an Ezine out every 3 or 4 months is enough, I think. The website is done very well and set up, so maybe just a few hours a day is enough to keep it going. And than there would be time for Grant to work part time somewhere else .... just an idea.

It is a fantastic website and it has helped many people, there should be a way to help Grant to keep it going.

Greetings from Sao Paulo

Mika

Re: financial situation.

I see that there is about 3,500 registered members but well under half that many posting regularly. The equivalent of US$1.00 per month from each of the regular users would go a long way to keeping the site going & more importantly, allowing Grant to graduate from cat food to something slightly more appetising...

$12.00 per year is peanuts for a site of this quality. I've contributed once in the past & will be doing so again as soon as I've finished this posting.

Steve

yeah,

12 usd a year would be nothing for most users.

I am on the road since 1999 and have another two years to go. I donĀ“t know if I will have enough money for this journey. But if there is some left when I am back in Germany I will make a donation to Grant to keep this fantastic website running.

hope you can understand this
