    Default Late January/Early February 2011

    We will be at Sans Souci from January 29th until February 5th, 2011, for our fifth annual trip back "Home" to Couples. The others were all to Swept Away, but it is time to enjoy the other side of Jamaica, and still be treated in the same great Couples tradition. Only 170 more days until we leave the cold and snow of a Central Wisconsin winter for another week in Paradise.

    @Holster: Excellent - see you there. Crazy I know but I've already starting gathering items together. Water shoes and the like... I'm using the lists they have on the other threads to pick and choose. One thing I am taking that I haven't done before on trips is to take a small journal for trip notes and fodder for my after trip posting to MB. We are taking a small netbook for making Skype calls. We will be in BLGG A or B as we purchased a beachfront one bedroom.

    I'm currently looking for a good waterproof camera for the Falls? Any suggestions anyone?

    Default Waterproof Camera

    For the Dunn's Falls trip, I would recommend the old fashioned film waterproof camera (Kodak or Fuji). It's easier for the guides to use and they worked well.
    We also had an inexpensive digital camera with waterproof housing for snorkeling and diving (from amazon.com), and that worked, but sometimes took longer to get the picture during the fall's trip, but the digital worked much better than the point and shoot during dives. We're taking both on this trip, each for different purposes.
