Last month we told you to be ready to share with us your best stories for our "What I Did on My Summer Vacation" contest..

Well, now is the time to put on your writing caps and tell us an amusing anecdote, an amazing adventure, or a heartwarming story of your travels this summer. And here is a hint. It doesn't really have to be about a trip you took this summer. We're just looking for good stories about travel and adventure. From real, honest - to - God people like you! So get your thoughts together and tell us your most compelling story!

The winner will have their story published in the September issue of Tourist Traveler and win fifty dollars to boot!
