    :whoopie: No not full time, but I am laughing so hard at the responses..:clap:

    Actually works out to be about 8-12 weeks of vacation/timeshare per year, but note all are within driving distance of my home in Mexico, but hubby flies back and forth, so still have to deal with flight increases etc..sometimes I just go with my mom or a friend.

    Guess I should say yea to full time timesharing since when not vacationing, most of time spent on timeshare or vacation sites :wave:

    I have 2 addictions....vacationing and owning timeshares, which means you have to vacation...LOL....plus we give away to sons and or friends at least a few a year, have even rented a few at great deals to not so close friends, and given some free weeks to workers of my hubby!

    Nah..you are all right, I must have a problem/addiction...it is a long list :shrug:

    Happy Vacations!!!

    Oh the banner can also do Lake Chapala Mexico as I have home there and am there 99.99% of my time, well except for the vacations of course!!!! LOL.

    Lake Chapala is a tourist area as well for many Americans and canadians....

    Want me to take it to a timeshare presentation??? Only kidding!!!!!

    If you go to page 1 of this thread you can see the on going week assignments. http://www.tugbbs.com/forums/showpost.php?p=523185&postcount=1

    Hmmm... this is getting so popular that maybe that post should be a sticky--what do you think Brian?

    you can look at the first post in the thread for the schedule of both banners and see when you are due up in the rotation!

    Ill also be making a dedicated webpage for display of the pictures and status etc....just havent had time to do it with the release of the timeshare marketplace recently!

    When you take it to the presentation, maybe you can have the group of SalesReps hold the banner up so you can take a pic. :hysterical:

    TugBrian...just want to thank you for your time and effort on this which appears to be a whole lot of work....no vacations for you, this may be very time consuming.....I commend you efforts and appreciate them...way to go.

    I think this is the greatest idea for us Tuggers......very creative thinking.

    Good job!!:clap: :clap: :clap:

    Well I just had someone PM who is going to be in PV & NV same time as me in Nov...so we are going to hook up with the banner and they can get their pics at their resort also.....

    I told them to PM me closer to time and we can make arrangements to hook up etc....I also printer their PM and put with my reservation so I do not forget, could happen since I have 4 weeks of vacation before that Nov. one and I am not even sure who I am taking on the Nov. one yet, maybe mom, maybe a friend, who knows, but hubby won't be here, so it goes.

    This is great we are working the banner already in Mexico, well at least planning...LOL

    I just went back to the first page to recheck the week assignments and noticed it says weeks in bold are confirmed....am I supposed to do something to confirm my weeks, or just wait and they get confirmed as time goes by??/

    Hey Brian--- These weeks are on top of each other :

    4. Black Diamond - Silver Leaf Fox Run / Illinois - 6/21/2008
    5. luv2vacation - hgvc orlando - 6/27/2008
    6. Swift - Tahoe Village / Lake Tahoe - 7/3/2008
    7. SusieQ - St George Utah - 7/12/2008
    8. IreneLF - Smugglers Notch - 7/19/2008
    9. luv2vacation - royal dunes /hilton head - 7/26/2008

    When we receive the banner are we given the full name and address of the timeshare where the next person in line is staying at? How is this working?

    soon as the person gets the banner and takes the pic...its off to the next person.

    if there isnt enough gap...the banner will be mailed to the resort the person is staying at (happened once or twice already)

    I dont think anyone has actually kept the banner the "entire week"
