As I am now retired, and in ill health, I can no longer maintain this website. Therefore, I have decided to sell it: lot, stock, and barrel. You can either keep the website the way it is for now (with the exception of my name on the site); or change it any way you like. Any and all of the contracts I have with advertisers can be turned over to you and you can change all of the affiliate programs to your name. Any commissions sent to me after the sale, with be forwarded to you. I am asking $999 for everything which is less than the site is valued for. Feel free to contact me with any questions.

Trust Earned Travel ( educates business and vacation travelers.

One budget-friendly way to explore every corner of the globe is to buy a timeshare. Because of their inherent flexibility, these vacation properties make it possible to travel to nearly any locale you can dream of. Provided that your resort is affiliated with an exchange company like RCI, you can secure lodging anywhere from Africa to New Zealand for a fraction of the cost of renting a hotel. The key to their money-saving benefits is the shared ownership that timeshares afford.
