    Yugo?
    And I'm sorry, but Bernie is a slow learner. He'd rather keep paying $1,000 in m/f and sell for $5,000, with the resort on the market for six years, than just unload it for a steal or even give it away.

    Brian, I enjoyed reading this article duringe heavy snowfall ... Thanks to TUG, I spend my Christmas in nice condo on St Maarten (SXM), and add one more week renting. It is not for every Minnesotan, but workes great for my family. Glad I found TUG before I signed my contract. :whoopie: Thanks again, TUG.

    Sometimes I think the best thing to do with these resale scammers would be to send a hit man to take care of them.
