Rapid Travel Chai joining Boarding Area: now with the cool kids

The Rapid Traveler is thrilled to announce that tonight Rapid Travel Chai is joining the unmatched collection of travel minds on Boarding Area, brainchild of miles and points guru Randy Peterson. It is a tremendous honor to join the luminaries of travel blogging. At this past weekend’s Chicago Seminars, The Rapid Traveler met Randy and many of Boarding Area’s bloggers (see great pictures at Million Mile Secrets), furiously scribbling down notes as they bowled him over with their expertise and humor.

Sincere thanks are owed to spiffster for helping The Rapid Traveler in every conceivable way, from brainstorming the name Rapid Travel Chai to nursing him through dreaded American Express financial review. And to LIH Prem for making the move to Boarding Area possible.

Administratively, http://www.rapidtravelchai.com will continue to work and will soon redirect to the new site. The new official address is http://rapidtravelchai.boardingarea.com/.

email and RSS subscriptions should continue to work, but please email if they do not. Twitter and facebook should proceed without interruption. If there are hiccups, please bear with us. Thank you to Mikel, Denny and Tim at Boarding Area for all their help.

See you all soon from the new digs!
