Strangely written ad on ebay for Welk listing. Are Welk units now called Hyatt Vacation Club? I would be upset, if I bid on this for Hyatt.

There reservation system is terrible and you have to book 15+ months for any type of peak availability so it is a tough program to navigate in comparison to HGVC which I truly enjoy.

if you want a specific week, I would agree that you should book as far out as possible. But saying that it is hard to navigate is a little disingenuous; it is just a different program. My wife is a teacher so we are usually vacationing during the breaks and thus we book early. but we also go on short weekends and have little problem finding inventory.

That's not mud season. That's the beginning of summer and beginning of winter according to the TDI

Ok, but there is still that stuff you get when you mix melting snow with dirt . But it’s an amazing place anytime of the year. Didn’t mean to offend.
