    It was an AMAZING experience, had so much fun with all of you!! Highly recommend it as a bucket list item for sure! Favorite's: The Baths, learning to snorkel, hiking the islands, the warm evening breeze and stars, and of course all of the island drinks! Hats off to the captain for a safe return-not that we wanted to return!

    It was a great group that went and we all had a lot of fun. But since it happen in the islands it stays in the islands so sorry can't talk about it. :)

    How about we all meet at my boat for the meeting? That is if you want to make a sunday out of it. Or we can all just meet in st thomas.
    #1 if you forget your passport. You stay on the docks. Make a copy of it and leave it with someone who can send it to you if needed. Scannning and email it to yourself on an account you can access is good to. Any question send me an email.

    Friday or Sunday also works better for me for the pre-trip meeting but I can make any time work just give me a time and place! I'm happy to host too, I'm not sure what is a central location for everyone.

  • Robert C.

    you are all good colleen, we were thinking about sat after spped flying at andrews for the pre trip meeting.

  • Colleen

    I mean Friday or Sunday...

  • Colleen

    I don't think I ever responded: re Friday night on the boat. That would be great if you haven't already solidified. (Robert - pls also confirm that you have everything you need from me)

    Also, are you having a pre-trip meeting? I will be on the east side this weekend but Friday or Saturday would work better from my side. Let me know or just catch me up after.

    I'd recommend getting trip insurance in case you get sick or something. It is ~$50 and would cover you if anything happens, including baggage lost, trip to hospital, needing to come back early. http://www.allianztravelinsurance.com/ I know some people that have used this company and they were pretty easy to work with.

    Ok all, my boat is going in the water friday the 27th and its needs to be moved from Monroe down to the new marina in OH. Its about a eight hour sail. Wanted to give anyone on this trip first chance to make the trip on sat with me. Want to keep it at five or six if we can. I plan on overnight just in case and if it goes fast we can take the ferry to put in bay for a little exploring of the worlds longest bar. Get back with me by next weekend if you wnt a spot

    April 14, 2012

  • Andrew

    Can everyone make a pre trip meeting on May 5th in the evening? Maybe around 4 or 5?

    April 14, 2012

  • Meghan

    I also get in at 1:30 or 2 on Friday and look forward to helping. Hadn't gotten as far as figuring out Friday night so I'm game for whatever.

    April 14, 2012

  • Pavel M.

    Andrew, I'll be there 03:31pm -May 11, Fri so I am in, told Robert already that I can help with boat if needed. Let me know.

    April 13, 2012

  • Andrew

    If you are flying in Friday night, and would rather stay on the boat as opposed to getting the hotel, we can get it early for $50/per person if we have 4 people... Who is interested?

    April 13, 2012

  • Andrew

    For those that need a duffle because hard sided luggage is not allowed on the boat, Meritline has one for that will fold down for $21.95 shipped... Copy this link:
