You had me up to the Submarine part... :shock:

I've almost got the voice down myself, but I need to figure out how to type in the voice. Then, I'd be awesome.

I think we need to keep Rut's zip line in the plans for Maho. Maybe a giant sling shot thingie that will shoot you from the dock to the hotel? It could work.

Since we're resurrecting old posts and since the newbies already know that we're nuts, here is the zip-line tour thread, because it was funny:

So funny you should bring up old messages, Ruth! I tried to "bump" your "how we got here" thread from long ago, before I left work today!

Nice One RickG,
Pulled one on my brother today telling him our villa (4/29 arrival) was not going to be available and we would be staying somewhere else. Joke didn't go over well, he's over it. Someone told me of the possibility of a sub tour thing on STJ way back when; thank God it never happened.
