How embarrassing...

Due to an overwhelming response, we've had to take down our 20/20 Survey. We sincerely apologize if you're seeing this message and are unable to participate in the survey, however we've max'd out the number of responses we're able to receive and we've pretty much clogged our inboxes with great feedback.

We truly appreciate everyone's input and enthusiastic response to the survey and to The Backpacker's development of an online storefront. We will keep you posted on its progress!

Thank you!
