    Banner 1 back from Thanksgiving in Hawaii!

    Banner 1 had a great time vacationing in Hawaii! Unfortunately, no other TUG Banners were there to join in the fun, so it had to find its own kind of banner amusements. Here's a picture of it playing on the beach in front of Kauai Beach Villas.

    HI Brian, The new additions you made to Banner 2 for me, all look llike they will work out great thus far..Thank you...They all look like there will be time for banner to be delivered to hubby in Mass. to bring to Mexico ( that will avoid any Fedex or such for others) and if you can leave say a week or a tad more after each one, he usually returns to states in that time frame on those dates, and he can send on to next person for me, without Fedex, but if it happens that I have to do the Fedex, have no fear I will...the banner must keep moving on and vacationing...LOL.

    I have pm'd Black Diamond...maybe they will read on here...as I have no response as yet. Anyway hubby will be leaving the states early morning Dec. 22 for Mexico, so thus he needs banner before that time or else have to make other arrangements for it to be delivered here in Mexico) ( this is for Banner 1). Hubby, as long as we get in time for our vacation on Jan 2, but note he leaves US Dec. 22, he will return to US on Jan 18th so he can send banner on to next person, unless there is a change in the TUG schedule and then we will Fedex it.

    Thanks again....this is lots of fun and a great idea with the banner and it sure draws a lot of attention which hopefully gets a lot of newcomers.

    Have a nice X-Mas....

    Brian -- This is a great, fun idea -- are you thinking about an additional approach to this idea, so more people can be involved? It's really fun set up as it is, but with the shipping time lags, and so forth, it's kind of limited. I'm not angling for a year's membership, since I think the TUG fee is very reasonable. I didn't read this thread in time to offer to take the banner on our upcoming trip to Grand Cayman, staying at two different TS (12/20-1/3), but it would be fun to include photos with it from there. Would you have any interest in emailing me a pdf or jpeg of the "art" and I could perhaps make a smaller version of it for a few photos? That defeats the purpose of having it signed by other Tuggers tho. I'm happy to "advertise" for TUG -- I've found it very helpful and would like to have more folks using it.

    Anyway, if taking one to Orlando (Marriott Royal Palms and Saratoga Springs) in June (5-20) would work out, please add me to your list for that time. Thanks.

    I didn't have my laptop with me so communicating with pammex was only when I could get to the (pay) PCs in the business center at Sheraton Vistana Villages. Sorry Pam! As you know from my PM I got the banner just fine. It had a lovely time in Orlando and will be on its way to Southern California very soon!

    no problem, was just concerned as things can go astray in Mexico as they say and wanted to be sure you had it...and it was not lost at resort or such...

    happy to hear you had a great time in Orlando!!!

    We have two upcoming trips that one banner or the other might like to come along on...

    We just planned a trip (short notice) to Freeport (Ocean Reef Resort) Bahamas, leaving on 12/19. Neither banner has been there, so they are both welcome to come along if you think the shipping will work out for the previous and next guardians. It might be a little tight on for Banner 1, but I could receive Banner 2 from and send it back to Victoria at her resort in CA. Let me know.

    Also, May 16-20 staying at Atlantis (but not Harborside), then possibly moving on to a TS if I can find a last minute bonus rental or getaway cheaper than my current hotel res ($600 for 4 days) in Nassau.

    Brian -- Banner 2 has lost its instructions somewhere while traveling the world. Can you (or whomever created them) post what they are so that we can reprint and enclose as needed? Banner 2 still loves its pink Sharpie, though! Thanks.
