    I just reviewed your list of soon-to-come travel shows across the country. “Across the perimeter of the country” might be the better name for that list. When do you plan to take the show to Atlanta, Dallas, Denver, Nashville, and St. Louis, just to mention the most notable absentes? If you have a fuller list available, why is there no link provided?

    • Hi Deborah,

      Thanks for commenting! To clarify, these are not shows that we organize; it’s a round-up of travel shows put on by various organizations. We actually looked for shows in most of the cities you mentioned, but couldn’t find any upcoming ones (Dallas had one in November 2012, and St. Louis had one earlier this month before this post was published).

      That said, we did find one in Denver that we’d overlooked, which I’ve added to the post.

      Happy travels,
