Queensland TravelSmart member Aspen Adventure Pack win notches double for north Australia

Queensland has won again for the second month in a row in the GoSee TravelSmart Club Members free prize draw. Alan Bullock of Buderim is the winner of the Aspen Holiday Parks Adventure Travel Pack for September.

We also have a New Zealand winner from Cambridge who will get a GoSee New Zealand Memory Stick to secure computer information and provide a personal portable drive for computer files.

Hackers (Internet vandals not the professionals who develop and protect systems) are rife on the Internet. Never leave passwords or personal information unprotected on your system. Never leave a Memory Stick in your USB port when you are not using it, particularly if it holds personal information.

GoSee likes Cambridge in the Waikato Region of the North Island of New Zealand. It is called the Town of Trees. It studs produce champion horses and GoSee remembers a fine lunch stop on a editorial tour to Taupo via Cambridge after attending the National Motorhome and Camping Expo in Hamilton which is about 24 kilometres from Cambridge.

Free GoSee TravelSmart membership has many practical benefits. Now a new touring aid has been added. It is a spread-sheet fuel calculator.

The spread-sheet is linked to the popular GoSee Fuel Calculator (just click TravelSmart Good Stuff option on the left of the Home Page).

It is designed to give TravelSmart Club members the ability to use the speadsheet over 10 fills. GoSee believes this gives a better range for a running average of fuel performance.

With a 10 fill spread calculation headwinds, hills, road surface, hot weather, different drivers and varied loads and weights are better covered in producing an actual average outcome.

Free membership of GoSee TravelSmart Club extends the key benefits which clicked the idea of free touring websites to assist travellers in Australia and New Zealand and the caravanning industry into action five years ago.

As a registered member of the GoSee TravelSmart Club members have access to additional features they include information and prizes.

Editors Note: The GoSee TravelSmart prizes are not redeemable during peak periods and accommodation is subject to availability. To be eligible for the monthly draws new TravelSmart members must supply their full contact details.
