    Glad to see some repeaters and some new couples! Don't forget to do the double digit dance this weekend! We know of at least 2 or 3 more couples that will be there...perhaps they will post soon.

    Hi Guys,

    I did the two digit dance yesterday- woo hoo, it felt so good.

    98 sleeps and we will be on our way - that's only 14 weeks. So that's only 98 days of checking the message boards for at least an hour a day, when I should be working but dreaming is much more fun.

    Hi Guys,
    Less than 140 sleeps now it seems to be coming around fast but not quite fast enough.
    Soon be Cuba Libre time woho

  13. #13


    I've been holding off starting the countdown because it seems so far away. I figured I'd wait until we hit a two digit number. However, since you've already done the math, now we can just hitch a ride on YOUR countdown! I'll be sure to buy you one of your Cuba Libres for your efforts. I hear the price is right.

    Mary and I are both on an exercise program to get in shape for scuba diving. Anyone else dive/snorkel?

  14. #14


    Hi Jeff, that means that you only have 135 sleeps now as you are there 3 days before Harry and I.
    I started counting at 302 and couldn't contain myself anymore so had to post.
    Harry loves scuba, and enjoys having a go, not certified or anything but will be partaking I feel sure. I have tried but struggled, might give the course a go though to see if I can get any better.
    The first rounds on you as I also have heard the price is right, but it must be Havana Club. LOL

    So.. you've had a LOT of countdown practice - Excellent! You can be in charge of the official countdown for this thread. I think I can handle subtracting 3 from your number. Just make sure you post at least once a week or so or I'm going to have to break out the calendar myself and then you'll have to buy ME a drink. (I hope CSS carries Havana Club - I'd hate to have to carry my own bottle of booze to an AI resort. You'd have to be a REALLY good counter.)

    Looking forward to meeting you and Harry. This is going to be a fun trip.

    Chris, we'll be bringing one or two of those soft Frisbee-like disks that Rob brought last year, along with some paint in case people want to do that. We usually bring some cards and dice, too, but those don't tend to work that well on the beach or in the pool. Last year one of the CSS staff taught us a couple of card games that they like to play. We played those games at the swim-up bar, which worked ok. We travel with carry-ons only, so we can't bring too many large items!

    117 sleeps till party time. So that's only 17 weeks which sounds a lot sooner that the sleeps even if it is just me wishing.

    Looks to be a quiet month, too, judging by the number of posts! Anyone else going in January?

  25. #25


    Almost 600 views, and only about 100 of them are me, so someone else must be at least looking once in awhile.
