fellow Dogz, and a sincere apology for the lengthy delay without
any news. In truth, there hasn’t been anything of really
major significance going on at Roadogz, so why bug you when
you have enough excitement in your life, right?
here's what we got:
Over the last year we have moved to San Francisco. Our new address
3135 Pacific Ave #3
San Francisco, CA 94115
the writing side:
A wonderful writer has been adding material to Roadogz. His
name is Rich Abrams, and he’s the Assistant Theater Operations
Manager at Yale University Drama School in New Haven. The last
couple of articles, he looked at the catering and security businesses,
2 fields we often forget to look at in our busy schedules, especially
on a show day. He looks at the industry in a very humorous way.
Check him out in the articles
section on Roadogz.
Martin (Torchy) Brennan will be giving us tour updates from
his travels with Iron Maiden. Martin has been their LD for a
number of years now. He's toured South America, Eastern Europe
and all the standard countries we hit on a regular basis. Check
out Rich and Martin on Roadogz.
Also, our Aussie friend Willy T went on hiatus for a while,
but he's back with another great article.
We love to see people who love to write. Virtually anything
you want to write about can be added to Roadogz.com, and we'll
add you to our bios. We’ve also added a link to the bios
on the home page that works on a random basis. Writers are getting
more exposure this way. We'll even add your banner to Roadogz.Send

the last year we've gotten to know some of the gang over at

For all you upgrade and airline mileage
addicts, we’ve added a couple of good links to the Airlines
section on Roadogz. Seatguru.com
highlights the good and bad seats on the main carriers in the
US, and ‘flyertalk’
is a huge message board where you can post your questions about
any airline. Find common answers on tickets, miles, upgrades etc.
When we tried, we got an answer in about 30 minutes.
