We had a member go missing for quite a while and we all worried so much about her, so we decided to link up with "buddies" that we exchange personal information with in case anyone goes AWOL .... then we can easily contact them and find out if they are ok.
I see in a lot of people signatures a list of their buddies, what's this? Is it just people that you've liked their pages? Or are they people you actually know?
Some of us have tried to get buddies that were in our same states. That way, if we had to try to contact them by phone, it would not be a long distance charge. We have many members from other countries too, so it can be difficult to contact them if we are not close by.
My suggestion is start a thread, with a question such as 'anyone from Ut?'. This site is like a big family and we all worry about each other.
