In this article, I reveal how I was robbed in Vegas. I don't name the exact place as it might not have anything to do with the establishment and just who happened to be there that night. The point is scams at top travel destinations often run rampant. This article reveals how people get robbed at these places every day - so you protect yourself:

I googled myself as I've lost track of all the articles I've contributed to, and I came by this one where I recommend visiting National Parks during shoulder season. All U.S. National Parks will be FREE to visit on Sept 30 and Nov 11-12, and of course...all CDN National Parks are FREE to visit until December 31 2017.

Clearly, the title suggests this article is out-of-season, but in fact, it applies equally for fall foliage:

I often get calls where I am asked for tips or quotes, and I am never told if/when the article gets published.

I just learned of this one published in May with 15 ways to save money when you've already booked your trip. Tip #13 is the one I contributed which I think is amongst the witter ones in the article.There are a few other good ones and others that are lame. What do you think?

Have you/do you plan to do any of these? Do you see any 'Wow's' in this list?
