I also think that the TR's should include the routing breakdown with miles & program used to book it with.
I agree with this. Will definitely help people who have no idea where to begin with what it takes.

I donít think this one would be a good option. This guy wrote up a TR and posted it (or had it posted) on many travel and photography sites. For example:

http://forum.luminous-landscape.com/index.php?topic=77683.0

Definitely Mrs AJK

I think that that was my introduction to reading TR's. I believe that you linked to it somewhere on DDMS. Here: http://www.dansdeals.com/archives/30111

They need to be fully edited and approved and i think the mileage and routing breakdown would be great as well any points used to give people a sense of what it costs in mileage and points to do the same trip and maybe even a money equivalent

also i wouldnt use any TRs from more than 1-2 years ago

Dan- I can add as someone who is still new at this and trying to get the hang of this, after I read your TR on the United Island Hoppers that really got me interested and excited about this "game" and to spend more time trying to figure out how to do everything correctly. So, I think this idea would be beneficial to people and also I would have info on the mileage and route breakdown as recent posts have said

I agree to both points... And add images

Great idea. I'd post it directly on DDMS.

I've got a big collection of restaurant reviews (particularly LA). I posted 3 in the LA master thread.

Wow,

Any TR is what I crave.

Don't underestimate how much this can do for DDMS, not that it needs it, but reading these would educate the readers on a practical level.
When they read what miles and how much were used on a particular routing and how much SQ...

An example is Lucky, as much as I cannot stand him, I cannot get enough of his writings, regarding hard and soft products.

Dan, you have an idea how well done your critic of kosher restaurant have improved the scene. This will add to it.

I say great idea.

Great idea. Will push more  people to write TR's (maybe I'll even finish some of mine) and definitely gives readers on the main site a different perspective .

Great idea-def. one of AJK's epic tr's (although maybe he is already considered featured on DDMS with the recent island hopper tr :D)

Any SF TR would be a great start.
+1
I was always amazed at his reports, the perfect amount of detail plus the perfect pics. AJK's (or should I say Mrs. AJK's ;)) YVR surprise, is a very solid option as well. Just my 2 cents.
