    Any of snowleopard's yearly trips throughout North America definitely belong on this list! :)

    I've updated the South/Central America and North America posts. If you have any more threads for those, let me know.

    It's not as long or informative as most of these threads, but my first foray onto ZooChat could beef up the Central America list a little. Incidentally, we still don't have a Panama subforum.

    There are a few more to add than just Hix's Brunei trip. TLD seems to have run out of steam a year ago and never finished the index :p

    Curiously enough tallying pretty closely to his starting a night shift job :p quite desperate to regain my momentum on both this and my trip reports!

    That said, if anyone has links to specific reports they reckon need inclusion it is a lot easier for me to edit previous posts to remedy this than it is for me to trawl through the forums looking for them manually ;)
