"As our international fixer, Dugan Lunday was a pleasure to work with - hard working, intuitive at problem solving, and a consummate professional. Not only that, but he was extremely personable and simply a joy to travel with. He handled several situations with grace, including tracking down a lost wallet (mine) and dealing with an irate neighbor at our vacation rental. I would work with him again in a heartbeat."
