Hi there! It’s Lynn again (I bet you’ve never heard that before, huh surfers?!!). It seems my turn at the blog has come back around, so here I am!

The traffic exchange industry, as well as the Internet itself of course, is such a vast and totally global community. You’ll find traffic exchange surfers and owners from most, if not all, of the countries in the world these days.

And so it also is with our Lucky 13 team, a global community as well. Once the team formed and started coming together and communicating regularly, I grew to admire what a truly global community our team is.

While the team is primarily (about half or more) made up of Americans, the rest are from many different areas of the world. We have at least one team member each in countries such as Scotland, Portugal, Serbia, and India, and two of our team members live in Sweden.

Another team member is a transplant from Estonia now living in the Netherlands. We also have yet another American on the team who has been living in Germany for some time, and teaches English as a Second Language.

There are four members of our team of whom I’m not quite sure where they live, though I expect two of the four are probably also Americans. Our team has collectively been very communicative and active from the start, whether in our team Skype room or our Team Chat within CTP, so I hope those folks will eventually start participating too and I can get to know those other four folks as I have (or already did, in many cases) the rest of the team.

And speaking of being active and communicating, the whole people-’round-the-globe thing really has had a hand in assuring that our team chats are basically ongoing and 24/7 around the clock! There’s someone from the team around at pretty much any time of day… although admittedly part of that is because some of us are night owls, and then there’s some extraordinarily early risers too.

So once again, when we say the Lucky 13 team is “the team that never sleeps” – it’s totally true! Someone on the team is almost certain to be awake, and hanging around our team chats, no matter what time it is.

Oddly enough, unless any of the four people I’m not quite sure where they live are up there, we don’t seem to have any Canadians on the Lucky 13 team. I’m not quite sure how that happened since there’s plenty of people from the land of maple leaves, poutaine and hockey around and about in TE Land.

Even the team leaders of our biggest current rival teams, the SurfAholics and the Crazy Cats, are both Canadians (and TimTech itself is these days leanings toward being rather overwhelmingly Canadian, of course).

Perhaps that will serve us on the Lucky 13 team especially well later in the year, when the harsh Canadian winter weather descends upon the Great White North again. I bet it gets a bit chilly indoors and is hard to click a mouse much sometimes when it’s in double digits below zero outside and your teeth are chattering, eh?

Lucky 13 Strategy Secrets – Revealed!

As you probably know CTP announced the competition schedule for the season 2014/2015 and disclosed prizes for the first month. I believe it’s great time to discuss some strategy.

If you have read Patrick’s post on Team SurfAholics strategies, you might have noticed that Patrick heavily censored his post leaving virtually nothing of value in it.

Now, I won’t do that. In fact what I will do is

Disclose the most important strategy of our team!

I hope my teammates won’t be cross at me for divulging this sensitive information.

But before I give you the info I also want to give you an important advice:

“If you intend to win, you must not lose!” – The Number one*

And now for the thing you have been waiting for! In this short video you will get to see the most important Team Lucky 13 strategy!

Unlike the Gumball Rally, I believe there will be no licenses taken for speeding, vehicles confiscated nor Macedonians killed.**

Country Farm Chik


Yep that’s me, Jean Kopinski. I live in the Country on a Farm that raises chickens. (hens) Have lived in Dexter, Michigan for over 39 years and, believe it or not, in the same house… Whoa, I know unheard of in this day and age.  I was born and raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan about a mile from the U of M football stadium.  Walked to most of the games back when they were $2.00

I was married for 36 years and for 15 of that helped my husband work through the devastating disease,  MS.  The last 3 years he was bedridden and life was a little challenging  then.  He passed in May of  2011.  We have  3 very beautiful daughters that are all in the Medical profession. A Pharmacist, Nursing Assistant, and Nurse.  They were a big help with their Dad and helped me to understand what was happening to him.  Grandchildren..  I have one,  Emma Grace and she is 10.  She keeps me young at heart.

I have been surfing since 2009 and was just getting into it when my life changed.  I took 2 years off from it all but still talked to the friends I had made.  In 2013 I needed something to do in my down time so I thought I would try my hand at surfing again and take it slow and easy.  I don’t have as much time as I used to because of the 23 Chickens in my back yard, but I do what I can and enjoy all of the friends I have joined back up with and the new friendships  I have made.

I am part of a very special team right now called  “Lucky 13”.  This is special to me because my favorite number is 13.  It is very true what they say about us..  We never sleep.  The other night I could not sleep and there was Sunny, working away…  lol… It was 3am

Well, that is all for now.  Maybe I’ll write again later and let you know how it is going.  Maybe, Maybe, I’ll start a blog too.

Good Lucky 13 to everyone…..  Jean
