Sorry, We Are Not In Right Now

Hi,

Thanks for checking out our blog, we really appreciate it.

However, our blog has moved to http://travel2dot0.wordpress.com/

Sorry that you have to visit another site to find us, but it is worth it...we have all of our 'classic' posts and comments on the new blog, plus a ton of new thoughts and ideas.

Why are we moving? Basically, Blogger failed us and never responded to our emails and requests. A clear example of poor customer service...too bad, we liked Blogger.

Come over and see us on the new blog.

Regards,
Troy and Mo

The Great Travel Site Showdown - Michigan vs. Virginia


After a thrilling (well, as thrilling as you can get online) semi-finals showdown which saw over 4,400 votes and a last-minute comeback via a 'viral' campaign from Virginia, the finals are set.

Michigan (George's Army) Vs. Virginia (The Lovers)

Congrats to our 3rd place, Illinois, and 4th place, Oregon, finishers.

We will give everyone in Michigan and Virginia a break over the weekend and start up the finals next Tuesday. Which will officially and finally declare one of these two sites as the undisputed, greatest DMO travel site ever!

Too much hype? Nah, just right.

When you say 'viral', don't you mean 'bots'? I'd love to see what they did to achieve all those votes!

bots? for real? do they travel?

Hi Anonymous!

Actually, we are unsure what Virginia did to get all of those votes.

Since the poll is cookie based, it is not that hard to vote more than once.

But, everyone seems to be enjoying the poll and it is almost over...so there is no turning back now. ;)

Again, is this poll the most scientific way to find the best DMO site? Probably.

(Hopefully you can detect the sarcasm...)

Keep reading,
Troy

All in good fun!

I can asure you Virginia did not use any bots! It really did go 'viral' but how - hey there is still another round left. I am sure Michigan has something big planned for the finals. How did Illinois get so many votes?!

Thank to Troy and Mo for the distraction and amusement.

Most definitely Virginia did not use bots, unless you call robotically repeating Tools > Options > Delete Cookies ad nauseum using a bot. :)

Boy that gets old fast.

Virginia has a corp of dedicated Lovers who are not only web saavy, but love web polls. We tap the power of our masses. :o)

If you're a foreigner and are gonna on a Tibet Travel or Tibet Tour, it's better to consult professionals on Tibet Travel Information or Tibet Travel Service. They may advise you to take part in the Tibet Travel Packages or Tibet Tour Packages because it's cheaper and the cheapest way of traveling is by Tibet Train. But travel abroad often needs to apply for a series of procedures such as visa, of course you need a Tibet Travel Permit. A Tibet Travel Operator or Tibet Travel Agency is the best way to choose for you.
