Sadly, no new boat. De After Life is a metaphor - <sad trombone>. We are living full time on our liveaboard boat, currently in Charleston. We'll head back to the Chesapeake in April.

Good to see so many people visiting this year! I am blue because we are normally on island for my birthday this time of year. February soon come!

Cheers, RickG

Looking forward to our two weeks in April! Does anyone know if dinghy rentals are available?

Booked yesterday for May 19 to June 1! I am happy dancing all over the place! My heart feels so full when we have STJ in the pipeline. It really feels like a living breathing loved one.

April 14-20. One night in Cruz Bay and the rest in Coral Bay. Our first time trying the quiet side.

Sorry to hear about De Life but glad you’ve got your next boat in the works already!

To answer my own question, dinghies are available via the Bad Kitty folks.
Just confirmed!

We are 'cheating' on our beloved STJ with a trip to STX St Croix. We actually had planned this back in May of last year long before Irma and Maria. Post storms our flights have changed(for the better) and our condo won't be ready...so Plan B. Looking at splitting time between Fredricksted and C'Sted. Both kids are getting Scuba Certified while we are there.

But, Lil Cheese has informed me that we will be returning to STJ for a long B'day weekend in November.

Continued prayers for all our island friends!!

Enjoy the Journey! 8)

We are returning for our 45 th trip from Feb 8-15 this year. We have not done a winter trip since 2013 but since we stay in Fla for the winter and we got a RT on AA for $211 each from Miami, we couldn’t say no. Had a large birthday trip for my big birthday planned for this summer but with the air situation and our inability to plan ahead for far flung guests from the west coast, that trip may or may not happen. It will be scaled back a bit for sure, but I know Rich and I will do some sort of trip this August for sure. But we are now are counting the days until Feb8, short timers that we are!

We'll be there this year at some point.

Villa company and car rental company still holding our deposits from last November's cancelled trip. Thinking about early September, which would put us on island for the Irma anniversary.

Headed down for the Unofficial 8 Tuff Miles race - 2/22-3/5!

We purchased a home in Coral Bay a week before Irma,Into the Mystic, and are excited to stay there. It will be my husband’s first time (besides one night before power was restored...)! Also on the rental market ;)

So jealous Tracy. Have you done 8 Tuff Miles in the past? I bet the Unofficial 8TM will be a blast and a celebration of the St. John spirit. Hope you are able to give us a report!

I’ve done the race four times but will need to be a spectator this year due to a knee injury. I think there might be a larger turnout than expected this year!!
