Maybe in a few years we'll be able to do this! Sounds wonderful.

I would love to do that! Unfortunately that pesky little thing like DH's job gets in the way -- the nerve ! The best we can do now is 10 days starting next week. Maybe when he retires......

Count me in!

I'm here from early December until late February. I move around alot, staying at all the DVC's at WDW and several offsite timeshares (mostly the Hilton's and Marriott's in Orlando and a Hyatt in Bonita Springs), spend Christmas week at relatives that live near Tampa, and go to the beach for the weekend once in awhile.

Friends come down from up north to get away from the cold once in awhile (some are here now), and my Tampa relatives come over once in awhile also.

Snowbirding definitely works for me!

I may have to rethink whether or not I want to do this
I LOVE anything with goat cheese. Actually, I'm thinking about getting a goat!
My aunt would give me coke and some pecans to keep me quiet

That is our DREAM!!! Once the kids are both in college, we are planning to either use all those dvc points on one long vacation or lots of weeks throughout the year!!! ENJOY!!!

We're in the planning stages! Still weighing the DVC option to maybe an inexpensive condo or manufactured home. Nothing beats on-site, but I'm worried about long-term availability as membership continues to increase

In any event, OP, you are living the dream!!!

It has never been the point count that scares me . . it is the maintenance fees that somehow trail along with them, , , , like a little brother that just can't seem to leave you and your girlfriend alone . . .

We've now got enough points to swing a stay at OKW for the whole month of January in a 1 bedroom and plan on doing that once the kids are out of the house. One trip at BWV my wife had a conversation with another woman. She said they come for six weeks every Jan/Feb, she stays and her husband comes down for Fri-Mon very week.
