    HAPPY BIRTHDAY! I can't thank you enough for the wealth of knowledge I have gained from this community. My hubby is so impressed how I have "mastered" our Wyndham account. It's all thanks to TUG!!

    Congratulations. It seems in my mind TUG has been around for all of my time sharing life but I guess not. I remember after buying our second timeshare I started mentioning about communicating and learning to other timeshare owners when we would meet them at the pool or at a breakfast we would go to so we could learn about the area. Those certainly were the days when you didn't feel pressured and when the entire experience was fun.

    Been a fan since the beginning. Was an email site? Strayed away for a few years but not for long.
    Congratulations on 24 years of TUG Brian!

    My belated but no less sincere congratulations to TUGBrian and all of the moderators who make this such an amazing resource, refuge, and rejuvenator!

    As a resource, TUG has taught me a ton about this fairly substantial investment we all make into great vacations with (mostly) really nice accommodations in (mostly) spectacular places. Thank you!!

    As a refuge, TUG's citizens (meaning my fellow TUGgers) are (mostly) hospitable, informative, kind, polite, funny, endearing, enlightening, and vibrant. Quite a difference from so much of the crud one sees elsewhere on the internet and social media. Thank you!!

    As a rejuvenator, TUG gets me stoked to explore new places, plan for my next road trip, and re-live favorite moments from past trips that might serve to inspire someone else. What fun. Thank you!!
