    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

    How to steal a Moosie for your very own!

    Please, he is yours for the taking!

    IMG]http://www.wdwinfo.com/photopost/uploads/43490/groupsm2.jpg[/IMG]


    1. Click on "User CP" at the top left of the page.
    2. Click on "Edit Avatar"
    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.

    WOW! Here we go again! This is kind of like getting a villa that has just been refurb'd! Smells good, looks good, but has the same old friends as always!

    THANKS to Jimmy and Twokats for stepping up to the plate to nurture us and taking care of the details we all appreciate.

    See you all at The Lodge!

    My family LOVES VWL.. I didn't know y'all had a groupie thread. :hippie:
    My parents have DVC here. My DH and I are taking our niece (7) and nephew (9) in June and we are staying in a studio. I'm super excited. I think I just may start following this thread! :cool1: :surfweb:

    Thanks to jimmytammy and twokats for continuing this thread!

    32 days to go until we walk into Jambo House, my second home away from home. VWL will always be numero uno. But we have a 5-year-old granddaughter in tow, her Mom will be working, so it will be fun if not hectic. Here's the lineup of who is going with us.

    Me, DW, DS, DGD
    Two friends (married of course)
    My cousin and her husband and maybe their daughter (if she can get off of work) I should know definitely later today.

    So the total will either be 8 or 9 in the GV. It should be fun, fun, fun!

    All I did was follow Jimmy and Tammy, but I think we coordinated it very well myself.

    I hope (and I know Jimmy does too) that y'all enjoy this new thread just like we have enjoyed the previous ones! :thumbsup2

    Thanks, Muushka. I think we did that well also.

    You are so welcome. I hope you enjoy your rest from the task and I hope I can do as well as you have in the past.

    PM for birthdays and anniversaries will work. I will try not to miss too many posts in case they are listed in the thread, but I know PM's will get to me faster!!! :surfweb:
