    Hello everyone,

    I am a new HHI owner planning a first trip to Hilton Head without the kids to celebrate our 15th wedding anniversary and 25 years together.
    I have much to learn about HHI and am therefore sponsoring the 2013 Hilton Head lovers thread!

    Please let me know when you'll be there and I will do my best to update a list of guests in post #2.

    If you are looking for additional tips & tricks, be sure to follow the 2012 Hilton Head Thread-Tips, Tricks, Roll Call:

    We are going in March - 10-15.
    We've never been, but I've been reading the 2012 thread and gathering info. We own at OKW, AKV and Vero, this will be our first visit to HH.

    Since I work for the weather office, I thought I would entertain you by providing forecasts. By the way, there is typically more skill in winter temperature forecasts, especially in El Nino winters, which 2012-13 promises to be. So here is my temperature forecast for Hilton Head (issued at the end of August 2012 - will do a monthly update):

    Jan: average
    Feb: cold (below average)
    Mar-Apr: warm (above average)
    May: average
    Jun-Sep: warm (above average)
    Oct: average

    These are **average** forecasted conditions for each month, (compared to typical temperature for the month). Even when the forecast is correct, weather on individual days can be quite different from the average.

    More details here:

    Just want to say Thank you! We don't have any plans for HHI in 2013, but we love the resort, and who knows, maybe we will fit a small trip in before 2014!

    We are new owners at HHI also! We closed a couple weeks ago and are patiently waiting for our points to load so we can schedule a week next June. We visited for the first time in April and loved it. We can't wait to start making annual Summer trips!

    Given that we have a majority of 1st time visitors to HHI, I decided to update the visitor list to show that info as well. So if you have not already done so, let me know if it's your 1st visit when giving me your dates.

    Going on our annual HHI trip June 7 - 14....just added on some more HHI points....I think this is our 11th yr (not sure). We've met so many wonderful members, non members and cast members over the years there. We also love and belong to OKW and Vero.

    We bought into HH in October 2010 and took our first vacation there last month. We had so much fun, we are coming back with family. Using the 25% discount to make a cash ressie of a 2bd for some of them and booking a separate 2bd with points for ourselves (me, DH and DD16) and MIL and FIL. Staying June 24-28.:beach:

    We love Hilton Head and visit most summers. 2013 is probably going to be an off year for us as we are planning a trip to the parks and Vero. Enjoy it. I think it might be DVC's best kept secret. So relaxing with just the right amount of Disney thrown in.

    DW and I will be staying for the first time in March from the 9th - 16th. We have more research to do before then, but it looks really great!

    We're doing a little different Spring Break trip, spending 5 days at WDW, then driving up via Savannah (a city I've always wanted to visit) and splurging on a 1 br at HH for 2 nights. Since it's just DH and I, that's a real treat. We love HH for the supreme relaxation. Then we fly back to NE out of Jacksonville. We'll be at HH March 22 and 23.

    We have to modify our dates (my daughter has a dance competition 3/9 and 3/10).
    Still not sure how we're going to get there by then, but we switched to 3/11 - 15 and from a 1Br to a 2BR! One less night, but it costs us less points!
    And, NO I'm not changing my ticker for one stinking day! :laughing:
