WHERE'S WENDY? Contest: And The Winner Is . . .

The results of the WHERE'S WENDY? contest have been tallied, and it should surprise nobody that the grand prize -- a free three-night stay in a deluxe room at the J.W. Marriott Cancun Resort & Spa -- goes to Tracker1312. Anyone who's been following our game from the start -- and, if you haven't, you can click here to replay it in its entirety -- knows that Tracker's ability to divine where on earth I am at any moment is superhuman. Some WHERE'S WENDY? players even wondered if Tracker was hiding in my suitcase. Personally, I was most bowled over when she guessed which cruise-ship cabin I was in! Tracker, please shoot me your address and I'll mail you your prize certificate.
The title of Runner-up goes to LoriB, who won 3 rounds and showed great sportsmanship throughout. LoriB, you get lunch or dinner with me at the restaurant of your choice. Honorable mention goes to the two players from New Zealand, Kiwiwriter and TheGlobalTraveller, who hung in there till the end, despite sleep and travel schedules that made any thought of winning virtually impossible.
Good job, everybody, and happy travels until our next contest!
