    Hello and welcome to TUG to all those I have directed to TUG while they visited at Bonnet Creek. I hope you find the website as helpful as it has been to me. Read a lot and ask questions. The people here love to help each other. Above all, if you buy, buy resale!!

    TUG always makes for some amazing (and lengthy) poolside chats while on vacation at a timeshare for sure!

    Sadly, 99% of the people I direct to TUG (and Flyertalk) never show up. Their lose.

    same reason most people dont rescind in time...while on vacation you tend to forget about financial/advice things!

    We directed a young couple to TUG while poolside at Port ST Lucie. Is nice when you can help we started out timesharing in 1981 and no TUG then. But we have used TUG advice since the beginning of TUG. We also enjoy sharing advice too.

    Most people think there is a catch.

    It was a pleasure meeting you and hanging out in the hot tub behind Tower 5 Christmas week...of course, one of my daughters enjoyed floating around the lazy river with you! This was our first trip we met fellow Tuggers on.

    Lol...my youngest daughter, when we got back to our room the last evening we spoke, said, "Daddy, it would be great to stay here until February, too!" Now we're all dreaming!

    Happy New Year to you and God bless!

    Oh, I've been a member here a couple of years...love the group and the people! I have learned so much about Wyndham and their programs...if only everyone could find TUG before buying retail...it could help so many!

    Have a blessed one!

    The conversations I have had with many in the hot tub. I always try to educate people before they buy for the first time or buy more developer points. Sadly many think there is a catch when I tell them you can buy for under $1000.

    There is always the saying "If it sounds too good to be true". Oddly, this is a case where that saying is wrong. I have talked to many in the pools and hot tubs over the years. You get people who are interested in hearing what you have to say to others that don't believe you or shun you when you talk about buying resale. They go by the old "too good to be true", there is only so much you can do to educate people.

    Hi Jim! We just checked into Bonnet Creek. Was wondering if you were going to the TUG gathering tomorrow at Golden Corral? If so see you there, otherwise, want to do a poolside chat sometime?
