Can anyone make suggestions for a site that will allow me to post one survey question (for free)? SurveyMonkey has been mentioned. It's a one-time thing. They limit their free service to 100 answers. As this will be targeted to a specific audience (membership of 214 - though I'll be happy with 75 replies) are there other services people have used with success? I've also been given a time constraint. I need the responses  received and calculated before the end of December. If anyone can help - thank you in advance.

Not a weird idea at all, Joe! It's very similar to one Kris and I have discussed after the meeting. E-mail responses are easy - especially if the subject line is specific and so is the body of the e-mail itself. Spammers may try to strike but, again, short time frame. We have all of the addresses for our members - what doesn't match up, doesn't count, and we're not going to get all members voting. (Rather like showing up at meetings...) SurveyMonkey will work as will PollDaddy - a site a friend uses regularly. He'll even help me get it set up. (He's stuck on a mountain top (possibly Nepal) with a strained calf but can help me via his mobile and Twitter since he's not goin' anywhere in the near future. Yup, have a lot of interesting friends around the world. LOL!) 

We first need to get the answers posed to Mike about certain issues before we can do an informed question(s) vote. We hae a bit of time though not much as people do get caught up in holiday stuff and travel during December. I'll get in touch with Mike so we get answers sooner than later.

Thanks!

I'm putting a call out to everyone on G+ that is also a Travellerspoint member. I NEED YOUR HELP! Please pass the word along if you know someone too. I am just asking for 2 minutes of your time to answer a rather simple question about cell phones here:

http://www.travellerspoint.com/forum.cfm?thread=81028

It's for a really good cause as it helps the TP Foundation fund micro-loans around the world through Kiva.org:

Thank you in advance. ;)

Back in March, I thought this would be a simple question with quite a few replies. I've received 3 - 1 as a PM from Samuel C. Klingen Daams. I need at least 4 to post the results in Travel Unravelled which supports TP Foundation, Kiva and Medecins sans Frontieres.

With all the apps people have on their phones and devices, someone should have more to offer to this question. So, I'm down on my knees, BEGGING TPers to please add 'your two cents worth'. We can't help other travelers to be better travelers if we don't give recommendations and advice. As always, thank you in advance!! ;)

Introduction
I'm not that Gretchen Wilson earning a living  from record sales nor the doctor living on the west coast. I'm the one who lives in the middle-of-nowhere Illinois and has a hyphenated last name. I also own cats. Quite a few. I like cats. 
Bragging rights
I've survived my own (bizarre) life. Guess I like it fine - so far...
