I don't think we hijacked Halloween, we just do a better job at it!

Don't blame you! For vacation, I use cargo shorts, and did you know there are variations out there with 10 pockets?

LOL Wow, I think ten pockets is a little excessive...don't you? I must admit, I always have my mini messenger bag with me (call it a man purse if you like). I actually just bought a new one so it'll fit my new digital camera!

I can't say as I have ever booked using AAA, I just call DVC and they do most of it. I agree with the thing about having control - I watch the Jet Blue site, and have managed to get 35.00 back from "sales" they have - if one calls with the lower price they give a refund (woo-hoo!!)

I will be there from 10/14 to 11/3 - please look me up. I have a tiny lime green mickey head -but it gets lost in the mess on my pack (pooh, tigger etc!).

I hope to cross paths with some folks...I will have guests for 5 days, but otherwise am flying solo as of now.

WOW that's a LONG trip! Have fun! Well, for anyone that will be down there at the same time as me...aside from my bag with a LGMH, you can also pick us out pretty easily...we'll be the short gay guy and the really tall straight best friend wandering around the food and wine festival (probably with a beverage in hand)

(She prefers straight best friend over some of the other terms that are out there...)

You could be right, but it does tend to tip the "Guess your Weight" game in your favor!

Rosie - when does your trip end? I'll be down there (hopefully) 10/25. I'm hoping I don't have to cancel this time, I really need a vacation! I'm not quite sure who will be with me - last week a bunch of friends sort of invited themselves but I have a feeling they won't be able to arrange their schedules. I'll try to keep an eye out for everyone.

I leave on the 26th. Pretty sure our last day will be at MK. I'll PM everyone with my cell #.

Yea - I am very lucky to have a LOT of vacation time. I was there for 3 weeks in June (what was I thinking !!??!) also. I may also go in late Nov for the decorations (love the holidays at WDW).

Please do PM with cell numbers - I am going to be at BCV, so I am right around the corner from F&W.

Well, I think I cursed myself by posting that I was hoping to make it down in October. My Dad has been very ill over the last year and I'm the primary caretaker for my parents (two older brothers - 1 lives out of town and the other is useless). Now I kept saying that I was "hoping" to make this vacation because if he's hospitalized again or if I can't arrange for someone to take him to dialysis then I would have to cancel. So here I'm keeping my fingers crossed about Dad and last night I end up in the ER with my Mom! She was driving to the grocery store yesterday and felt a bad pain when she turned the car, looks like a torn rotator cuff. After spending the evening at the ER and sleeping on their couch last night I'm running on fumes today. Did I mention that I was really, really looking forward to my October trip????

Oh Sue! I hope that your mom heals quickly and dad is doing very well. Sounds like you really deserve to sneak away!

Oh Sue!!!
I'm so sorry about your situation. That's an awful spot to be in. Your parents are lucky to have you.
