    Actually, I got things from a trip advisor person. He left me mats and an umbrella and a bag.

    I'm in Oahu - passing it on to a tugger from 11-17. Anyone coming to HGVC then could get it then.

    Perhaps we can make some sort of sticky for swaps in the future? Anyone in Kauai right now who wants to leave stuff for us? We arrive the 10th at Marriott Beach. We will leave it for someone on the 17th - just let us know if you want it.

    What a great idea!

    What a great idea! I can't count how many inflatables, beach mats, boogie boards, etc. I have left for the taking by total strangers. I'd much prefer to leave them for one of our many members who share their wealth of experience with the rest of us.

    hi ellen,

    leave it to you to come up with that bright idea. when we were at ko'olina in march this past winter, someone gave us a boogie board for our granddaughter, as they couldn't take it back with them on the plane. we found a nice family when we were leaving and passed it on to their children.
    i would have loved to give it to a "tugger" but i couldn't find anyone with their "tugger" shirt on!!
    have a great time, i know you will. it will be fun to get your report after your paradise vacation in the islands!

    That is a great idea. I would love to have had someone to hand things off to before I left the Islands the last time. You could also leave the items with the resort staff in the name of another TUGGER to pick up in case you were leaving the Island before the other arrives. Would make it possible to leave things for other TUGGERS even if you couldn't actually meet them.

    Wyndham Kauai Beach Villas has a small room behind the check-in office where people leave things they can't take on the plane with them. As I dumped the stuff I couldn't take home I noticed that there were some swim masks, fins, snorkels, beach mats, boogie boards, noodles, and a few other things that were nice to not have to buy. I wish every resort in Hawaii or the Caribbean had that type of set up too.

    I think this is a fantastic idea! Would be great to have a section or sticky on TUG where we could post about this. How does Brian feel about this idea? I think it would be very popular.

    This is a regional topic, so the Hawaii Board is the best place for it. We would not add another forum to TUG unless it was for a major topic. I will make this a sticky for now, and see how it goes.

    HINT - Don't forget to check with your resort. Many resorts have free stuff you can borrow, because it's left behind by guests. This week we got 2 brand new beach chairs, a boogie board, and an ice chest, plus several novels.

    What a nice thing to say! You can bet money on the trip report with pictures!

    I assume, for now, we should post when/where we're going on this sticky - offering and asking.

    Denise - never thought of seeing what was left. Great idea! I'll call the front desk and see if there's anything lying around.

    Stimulus Savings ala Tug

    Denise and Ellen,

    I think this idea is even bigger than Hawaii trades because it could apply to Hilton Head or Florida and on it goes. Saves a lot for Tuggers.

    A great stimulus savings for Tuggers! IF we had our own sticky and posted what we were leaving while we were there then someone could PM and we could leave it with the front desk upon checkout if allowed unless you were both there at the same time which could be a toughie especially on the hectic last vaca day.

    Each forum has a moderator. If you go to the forum and scroll all the way to the bottom, their user name is listed. You can pm them and ask them if it would be possible to add a sticky to their forum, and send a link to this thread as an example.

    Golf carts too

    We often go to Hawaii for several weeks and have left golf pull carts for other
    guests a couple times .We own at Waikiki and use our own donated items when we are there. Been three years now.We are going again in August for a couple weeks. Our little resort always has beach matts ,chairs, and books also.I bring my own mask and snorkel with me as I like to have a good fit and no water down my snorkel.

    We are coming to HHV tomorrow around 11 AM but only for two days. I don't want to take them in place of someone who is there for the week. If there are no other Tuggers or there are extra chairs, we would be glad use a couple of them for the two days. Thanks for the offer.

    I read on the Disney board one time this idea was being done for swaping strollers and was being passed down each week. People would sign up for it. Have fun!!
