We have our Orlando airline tickets for Jan. 14-28, but we have not net nailed down timeshare accommodations or reserved a rental car.

Nevertheless, we plan on being there Jan. 18 for another TUG Golden Corral reunion even if we have to stay at Motel 6 & take Uber.

One of these years we will make it! Starting this year, we will be at our condo in St. Augustine for all of November and the first 8 days of December then we will return to St. Augustine at the beginning of March and stay until the end of April. Until I can convince DH that St. Augustine is not too cold in January & February, we will continue to spend those 2 months in Belize.

We well Know how cold St Augustine is in January . We own 5 fixed weeks there in January ( weeks 52-4) and when we first bought in 2003, it was normally in the 70’s!! But for the last many years , low 60’s are the norm Or even 50’s!!
Sorry that we’ll miss you…we’ll be there right between your dates there.

Joan, those temps don't bother me since we are Canadian and that is much warmer than it would be at home. DH likes t-shirt, shorts and sandals weather all day every day. As long as it doesnt snow, I'd be happy! We can't wait to get back to The Beach Club!

Glad to hear you will be in Orlando in Jan. We winter at Winter Haven so this will be an opportunity for us to get some help re selling our timeshare. Thanks for letting us know.

This event is on my bucket list of things to do. Now I need to convince the Commander in Chief. LOL

I need to find a nice cruise around this event either before or after the cruise.

I love that you do this. I don't think Florida is in the cards for me this January, but if anything changes, I'll be looking you up. One of these years!
