    What draws us in? Is it the sounds of crickets chirping, or the western style music playing ever so faint in the background, or the distant sound of a boat horn that comes to take us away to magical lands. Could it be the sights, like the vastness of the lobby as you first step in, or the spotting of early morning wildlife amongst the pines, or the flickering shine of lanterns to light our way at night. Still, maybe its the smells of a woodsy setting, or the aroma of BBQ on a campfire nearby. What draws you in?

    Welcome to the VWL groupies! The original thread grew from a love of the Lodge, but it has become so much more than that. We all have a passion for the Lodge. Many of us own points there, several of us don’t. And it doesn’t matter. Our band of groupies has expanded in to much more than just Lodge talk. We try to stay on subject, but we have become so much more than just Lodge lovers, we have become friends. We are there for each other, an uplifting group. So join us! You will be welcomed with open arms.

    Qoutes from fellow groupies:
    You know you can always pull up a rocker and be at "the Lodge" blossomz
    It is a matter of your heart, once a Groupie, always a Groupie! DiznyDad

    3. Add the above stuff and paste him in (don’t need to use the insert image thingy)
    4. I removed the left bracket so that you can copy him, just add the [ to the left of the IMG].
    5. Click the SAVE button, and you're done.

    Just closed on my purchase last month. I already booked two vacations: July 7-14 in a 1 BR and Dec 21-28 in a Studio.

    We have a 3 year old and 1 year old so we'd prefer a 1BR but the point cost at Christmas is so high we are doing a studio to save on points.

    I'm totally looking forward to riding the boat to MK!

    Congrats! You'll love it there as will you're kids, especially at Christmas. It's simply gorgeous then. Be sure to take a stroll down to FW and walk around the RV area. Some of the RV owners put up some fun and detailed decorations complete with piped-in music.

    And, thanks to JT and Kathy for the work on the new page. It's perfect. :thumbsup2

    Try it now. I backtracked and could not find the old file that was used, so I inserted the location where mine is. If it does not work I will try to come up with a new way.
