User names of members (at least one) for those countries?

Just want to confirm. :)

I hear ya Sammy, but we're looking for international resident fliers, i.e. where you live. ;)

I have seen Malaysia, Italy, Denmark.
I think I have seen Austria.
I would have to search to find the users. No time at the moment.
There have been some from South America (I think Argentina, Brazil, Columbia)

John, how about France and Belgium?

Slowing pulling my head out of my tail, I was a bit scatterbrained, sorry. :)

France is definitely added, we know of fliers in Belgium for sure, yes?

Forum membership is not requisite for this list (that's where I lost sight for a moment)...

It's only important that there are active Rev fliers in any given country.

By England do you mean,

Great Britain, which would include 3 Countries, England, Scotland, Wales.

The United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, which would include 4 Countries. England, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales?

Or even The British Isles wich would include Eire (Southern Ireland) Making 5 Countries in all.

Depends if you want a big list, or an easy list :)

(Talk about can of worms, trust the Brits to make it difficult :) or is it just me :kid_devlish: )

England, hence no use of "UK" for this purpose... Really looking to figure out where everyone is. :)

Adding Ireland now, I remember we have folks there... And the others?

Surely Rev fliers? Any chance they were idle onlookers or non-kiters?

They do sneak in I know, we get them on all the other forums I'm working with.

Thank you to all Rev fliers AROUND the WORLD making this an incredible listing
of flyers. Maybe it's time for another World Tour t-shirt.

Can I possibly find out how many US States are represented in this way ?
Jim and Lyn- you will have to list your travel destinations on a separate file, I'm sure :blue-grin:

Thank you all again for your fabulous response.

Lolly

The list is not so big. Although I have visited every state except Hawaii, most of that travel was before we started flying. We have flown in nine western states, and will increase to ten in a couple of weeks when we go to SPI.

However, we are planning a trip through the mid-west this summer, so the list should grow considerably.

I just started the US state list as well and filled it in with the states I already know for sure there are Rev fliers in...

Anyone else fill in some blanks for me? :)

Cross-posted to the Rev page on Facebook as well, lots of international folks there who aren't on the forum.
