Site use soars as Jan. figures lift the bar and GoSee adds more prizes for our supporters

It is a bumper month for GoSeeAustralia and GoSee New Zealand. On GSA site users viewed 2.203 million pages, up 51 % on December. On GSNZ 136,233 pages were viewed up 36 %. To thank our supporters we add to the bag of GoSee prizes which are now a regular reward available to our huge audience of Australian, New Zealand and international GoSee site visitors.

All visitors to GoSeeAustralia can enter to win two season passes plus camping for the National Folk Festival 2008 in Canberra at Easter - that is five days and four nights of some of the best music and best company that you have ever experienced. Info on how to enter is in the National Folk Festival feature on this Home Page.

And free membership of GoSee TravelSmart Club extends even further the key benefits which clicked the idea of free touring websites to assist travellers and the caravanning industry into action more than four years ago.

Registered members of the GoSee TravelSmart Club have access to additional features which include information and more prizes.

So here as a late Merry Christmas and an effort to extend a Happier New Year to our site visitors are two lots of prizes for the December-January festive season.

The December winners of the GoSee TravelSmart Club prizes are -

Kev and Mari Norman of Kamira Queensland. They receive two DVD's:

Driving Towing to Stay Alive; Touring Australia's Outback. A happy Kev said today that the prize win had really blown him away. Garth thank you for the phone call Ref: the 2 DVDs I rang Mari at work she was stoked, he said. I have passed the web site onto all my friends so I am sure there will be a lot of new members joining very soon.

To cover the Christmas and New Year period we also drew the January TravelSmart Club winners.

John Anderson of Merredin in Western Australia also wins the two DVD's. John said today that he is new to touring and recreational vehicles and needs all the help he can get.

Both Driving Towing to Stay Alive and Touring Australia's Outback DVD's are a reality check courtesy of Cine News Productions.

With the help of generous friends in the caravanning and related industry prizes are drawn each month from those who register as TravelSmart Club members during that month.

GoSee awards prizes each month to new TravelSmart Club members who sign on during the month.

Now we have more prizes this time from travel writer Lionel Mussell. It is Australia Calling, the RV travel handbook which covers all types of Recreational Vehicle experiences.

Terry Macginley of Chermside West, Brisbane is the December winner of Australia Calling.

And the GoSee January happy camper is Michelle Bartel of Boorowa NSW who wins a copy of Australia Calling.

Michelle said today - This book couldn't come at a better time, We are just trading in our caravan for a motorhome and are marking the map of places and things we want to see. So this book will be a great guide. Thank you GoSeeAustralia.

Among other features GoSeeAustralia and GoSee New Zealand have towing information as an extra benefit for TravelSmart Club members.

For the first time on a public website caravan towing weight checks used by professionals are available online in Australia and New Zealand to GoSee TravelSmart Club Members. We are unaware of any public online facility in the world which offers this service.

Designers at Canberra based ContACT Internet Solutions, mother company to GoSeeAustralia and New Zealand, worked with towing equipment manufacturing icon Hayman Reese.

They created a quick-click comparison against tow vehicle model and caravan weight. The result is a safe towball load report with links to equipment designed for the long-haul. It's FREE, easy to use and helps anyone towing tour safely.
