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.

Ritz Carlton has (really!) been in active negotiation for several years to acquire Newfound Bay, on the north side of East End, one of the most remote and pristine places left on St. John. Not exactly a beach, and a really long ferry ride, so Maho might be pretty attractive to them. They have had carte blanche on St. Thomas--doing exactly what they wanted, even in the face of big community opposition, so don't rule it out.....

:shock:
