    Default Sept 2014 - Getting to Know You

    Well since we are nearing double digits until we travel "home" to CSS I thought it would be a great time to start this thread. This was great last year in that we were able to meet up with people who had posted in this thread. And we're looking forward to seeing some of those people again this year and will miss a couple who can't make it this time.

    So everyone going in September introduce yourself here and post a picture if you'd like. Last year Novastar kept a running list of the couples along with their dates of travel. So maybe he'll jump back in this year and do the same.

    NAME: Jason and Anissa
    AGE: 50 and 44
    DATES OF TRAVEL: Sept 21 - 29
    TRIPS TO CSS: 2nd time to CSS. 4th time to Jamaica
    ROOM TYPE: One Bedroom Beachfront Suite
    WHERE ARE YOU FROM: Seattle
    WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO: Sun! Relaxation and reconnecting with each other.
    WILL YOU GO A/N: Yep!
    DRINK YOU'RE LOOKING FORWARD TO: Hummingbird in the morning. Rum/Coke. A cognac in the evening.
    KIDS: 6 (3 of each). Only 3 at home now.
    LEVEL OF EXCITEMENT: (1-10) 6. Very much looking forward to going but its too far away to get really excited. By August we will probably jump up to a 15.

    Sorry everyone for the gigantic picture. I can't figure out how to make it smaller. If anyone can help let me know.

    If you open the picture in Microsoft paint or some other graphics program you can save it in a smaller size. 150 pixels square would be small size. Save this smaller size with a new file name and use the new file when you post. We will be there 9/24 to 10/4. If this works for you you can buy us a drink at SSB

    Lianna & Chris,

    You will be there the same time as us. Congratulations on your upcoming wedding. I think you will find CSS to be a great place for a honeymoon. You can be as social as you want. Last year was our first time to CSS and it is now our favorite place. We meet many wonderful people that we now call friends. Look forward to meeting you two. We'll buy you the first round of drinks. You can look at the first post in this tread to see a picture of us. If you see us please come introduce yourself. Or post a picture here and we'll watch for you too.

    BTW - if you are serious about trying SSB I encourage you to do it your first day. If you wait until your last day and find that you like it then you'll regret waiting until the last day. Just go over in the morning, find a secluded place on the beach, get set up and then drop the suits. You'll soon see that it isn't that big of a deal. You'll then find that you'll want to wander over to the bar for a drink and then decide to hang out by the pool.

    Jason & Anissa

    Welcome to the boards John & Leslie! With the picture it will be easier to spot you now. We and Kirk & Anamarie arrive the day after you guys. There's a long standing tradition that the one's arriving first buy the first round of drinks for those arriving after them. So first round is on you! Then the next day we owe the first round to Lianna & Chris.

    Looking forward to our Blue Hole trip. Glad you guys got in touch with Kirk. It should be pretty fun.

    Jason & Anissa
