Consider this a compliment from a happy reader and writer.

1994 Nissan Sentra was totaled in March 2005. I have been
looking for a car, of course, since then. I have done a lot
of looking and home work, but I was looking at too much car
was getting very discouraged, but I read a couple articles
on your site and it really made me feel better about sticking
to my guns about the cars I turned down. Your consumer report
was awesome. I cant believe that Volvo was so poorly
reported. I always thought they were great cars. I am looking
to buy A Honda CRV. I wasnt sure about it either, since
I am a Nissan fan, but once again your consumer report has
convinced me it is the right way to go. I do LOVE the CRV's.
They really are perfect for my family and me. Although we
only have one child who is only 3, we like to travel and last
year we took the Sentra to Florida. The trip was nice and
cool, but the space was horrible. I am looking forward to
a bigger car for things like that.
you again for providing such info. It has been a great help.

How to keep car interiors looking like new
just wanted to say thank you so very much for this info. I
found this on the web under askjeeves. It was the exact info
that I needed perfect in definition.
couldn't find this info anywhere else not even from persons
that work in auto stores could help me. I look forward to
using some of the techniques given for at home care for better,
cleaner carpets in my car. So again thank you so very much.
Tosetti, Feature Writer, Draft

provide for your readers. Hats off to all of you. It's refreshing

and inspires. Thanks so much!"

"Your statistics about female driver highway deaths hit
a nerve, as my daughter is an emergency room nurse at a hospital
near a major highway here. She sees many seriuous injuries
and deaths of women drivers who are petite and do not sit
properly behind the steering wheel. More education needs to
be out there about adjusting the steering wheel, seat, seatbelts,
etc. before driving a motor vehicle. Too often we are busy
with the a/c, radio, kiddies, etc. and forget that we may
be setting ourselves up for injury because we're not paying
attention to positioning our body for a possible serious impact."
FOR THIS SITE!!!"
read the entire article (about Mobile,
Ala.)and you have just been nominated as an honorary Southerner. Thank you
for using ALL of your senses while visiting us. At some point in your article,
you became almost poetic. The descriptions were well written and with feeling.
I am sure that anyone who reads your article will be able to tell you enjoyed
your stay. The touch of humor was just right!
hat is off to you. And girl...that would be a wide brim hat too."

your article on the Chicago
Fitzpatrick Hotel a while back, and based on your review I stayed there for
three nights. You were absolutely right - amazing hotel."
Drifting Away On a Gentle Breeze'] was very helpful. Thanks. We're even staying
at the Clarion !!
I am so excited to find this website!!! Just wish I
could subscribe to an American
Women Road & Travel magazine (one that would
come in my mailbox) Think
me say that your vote in making the [Nissan 350Z] the
sexiest car in 2003 is the talk of the Zchickz at Zchickz.com. Women who drive
Nissan Z cars! We all
agree with you! 0-60 in what???"

I'd like to say that I have enjoyed your website enormously. I use it often as
a resource for research about women in the automotive industry.
article I read, 'Women:
Their own worst enemies', was very uplifting and it empowered me to dust myself
off and get back in the game. I am determined to work harder and faster, in spite
of all that has happened. I know that I am a good person who deserves whatever
success I build for myself ( and I have no doubt I will build it). Thanks for
the incredible article, which gave me incredible strength to start over again
living my dream. I shall from this day forward hold you personally responsible
for giving me back my God given 'bull dog tenacity'.
you for the inspiration, keep doing what you're doing, it works."
Fernandez, RTM Reader
most useful, helpful and practical article
ever written on
Romig, Painesville, OH
is in response to your article 'Traveling
freely comes at a price' that appeared in my morning newspaper: Bravo! I couldn't
agree with you more. Seems so many people are taking our freedoms for granted.
It kind of makes me upset that they don't stop to think like we do. Thank you
so much for the article."
Markey, Canaan, CT
week I was returning from holiday in the Caribbean and had to switch planes in
Miami. Waiting at the gate with a number of people heading back to Hartford, CT,
one gentleman across from me on his cell phone loudly speaking, noticed four pretty
college girls cominig his way. He changed his subject quickly to: "So, how's
my Corvette?". (I'm sure it's been under its cover since October and is fine).
gent a few seats away is frantically calling one person after another to notify
them that he is at Miami International and "just got bumped up to first class".
The frequency of his calls told me that besides myself, no one else really could
care less about his upcoming thrill of 1st class air travel.
morning I read your column and almost fell of my chair with laughter. Thank you,
and, once again, Bravo Bravo!"
for a very useful website. I just started driving last year
and bought my first
car a few months ago."

really liked the context that you put the
story in, and am sharing it extensively with people I know because it does
a nice job of education of the importance of tires."
Own Worst Enemy?] was extremely validating and empowering! Thank you for the
encouragement to continue becoming and pursuing my professional goals! It can
be challenging, even while utilizing the support of all of your cheerleaders,
it seems as though those 'nefarious breed of sharks' are truly lurking around
article on Driving issues that matter
was very interesting. Thanks for caring. Well-written article."
really enjoyed reading [the cover
profile on Desma Reid-Coleman]. I have enjoyed being part of NAWBO and for
getting to know Desma she is a real ispiration to all of us. You wrote a wonderful
article and truly caught the essence of Desma."
article.....fantastic cover for [BOND].....yes,
indeed, they are firing up classical music in more ways than one. I'm a volunteer
firefighter and when I'm working at our fire station, I bring along my laptop,
hook it into the speakers on our main engine, fire up the music and everybody
knows who's working on the equipment.....
other firefighters initially complained, but quelled their voices when they saw
BOND on my laptop's DVD.......suddenly, classical music has taken an upturn! Wonder
for a great article......too bad BOND isn't touring the U.S.......I'd buy a ticket
for the music alone.....the rest would be eye candy!"
found [the Kathy Buckley profile story]
to be enlightening and motivational, keep up the great articles."

"I think this site is excellent! It breathes new life into
the network of American women shoppers and travelers."
on another outstanding and unique awards
ceremony. Last year was terrific, this year it was even
better, with the State of Michigan and Jennifer
Granholm. As I told my wife 'Courtney is braking
the gender gap!'"
came across your publication and site recently and reviewed it with great interest.
Your content is filling an important gap in the travel space, catering to the
unique travel needs and challenges of todays active women."
Wright, Timberwolf Creek B&B, Maggie Valley, North Carolina
I arrived on your site via a link from Madelyn's in the Grove B&B, Union Grove
NC. Back in my "other life" prior to innkeeping, I was an aerospace
engineer and spent a *LOT* of time on the road, in the air, etc. Now, I'm a B&B
owner tucked away in the North Carolina mountains, with a '65 Mustang to restore.
Your website does seem to cover it all! Looking forward to many hours on your
Ligocki of Ford: She is a wonderful role model for the American woman. She
does not compromise her ethics. She meets people where they are and encourages
and supports them. It was a great article about a great gal. We will hear more
about Kathleen in the years to come. Thank you."

just wanted to say thank you for including Candlewood's Hotel at Old Town in your
very, very nice piece
on Wichita. It's refreshing to see such good writing and photography."
Cook, managing editor,
Corvette Fever Magazine:
quite by curiosity, I discovered your Web site. A recent issue of Corvette Quarterly
magazine, reports your selection of the 2001 Corvette Z06 as the vehicle with
the 'Most Sex Appeal.' I couldn't agree more with your selection. .... Curiosity
about RTM, though, got me online searching for your site. Moments later, I found
myself in the midst of content that was refreshingly relevant, real, and interesting.
Often I find so little on the Web that speaks directly to me as an intelligent
professional woman. I was pleasantly surprised and instantly hooked."
you for your time and attention and for the wonderful work you do for women."
