So, I was sitting here, and I thought
why not share my research with everybody? After all, many of you might be curious about this kind of travel for yourself.
Well, thanks to numerous blogs, chat-rooms, and travel
sites, I have compiled a list of relevant postings. Some are helpful, some are
just funny (to laugh with, or even at).
Some aren't asking the same question they're answering. But all have some form of information.
All links are in the form of the question they address.
