Title: Final Aruba trip plans
Post by: Dihannah1 on July 22, 2006, 12:13:04 AM
Ok all, we are close to finalizing the trip plans.  Looks like ldslou has her tickets already.  I spoke with my travel agent friend and she will provide me more definitive plans/prices tomorrow, so will let you know.  The prices she is quoting are pretty good IMO.  I'll let you know, when I know more.  

Aruba!  Here we come!

Please do email me about the prices.  I am thinking they have gone down quite a  bit.  Mine was only 304.00 and with the huge group rates, it'll will be very affordable.  Don't forget to pack the shorts you told me you were going to let me borrow.  and the wigs.  Video equiptment I have, and I even have a GPS hooked up just in case we "go missing", it will track us at all times.  Tell you more later, in the email.

So far, the flight prices are going to vary, but group hotel rates sound like they are going to be good at the {{edit}}.  She just wanted to check a few things out first before she commited anything.  I'll email you all with more specifics.    She may be able to get us a few food vouchers or something like that,  somehow too, which is good.  I personally want to spend as little as possible on the island.

I have shorts for ya,  and shopping this weekend for more.. I love shopping excuses.  Hubby is grumbling, but he'll get over it!

A friend of mine is lending me his laptop for the trip.  I'm having a little problem getting my digital to work on it, but he said his works fine and would loan it to me too, if necessary.


My 18 yr. old daughter wants to go too.  I tried not laugh at her, God love her.  She believes she will be safe, she of course, thinks she's invinsible.  I want to be able to explore without worrying. Even if she could be bait...  But, Love her too much!

Be expecting an email soon!

Hey, that's great! Thanks Sunny.

Thanx Klaas we will.....Hey, which one of you told me about sandrak and her emailing you about helping?


Title: Final Aruba trip plans
Post by: Dihannah1 on July 22, 2006, 10:21:00 PM
Thanks, Klaas, as I said before, we should be careful not to give out 'specifics' , such as exact dates or places (not mentioning names, {ldstlou!}).  but I also said, to heck with those who need to come over here and be nosy, it's nobody's business what we do.  They can threaten all they want about people not getting on the island.  They do not even know who all is going! They do NOT have any pull on that island.  We are doing nothing illegal.  When did 'exploring' become illegal?  Besides, we will obviously be spending some money, so Aruba should be thrilled!  Nothing off their backs when we show up.

Thanks Sunny for the fellow traveler! That will definately make it much more interesting.  I want to know more, please email me.

Msmarple,  we should identify ourselves before we leave, it would help when we meet up.  Were going to be spending quite a bit of time together, so let's make it informal now.  (of the forum of course, please do NOT release real name on here!)

At last,  my friend is waiting until Monday to check on some packages for us, to be sure she can get us the best possible value.  She's even thinking about coming.  She was interested in this case before,  and got away from it, but I just got her hooked again...

Well, first I want to say it was nice FINALLY getting those of you on AOL instant messenger finally and still working on the rest. I enjoyed our chat and our special guest!  

However, I do want to make one thing very clear, just so everybody understands!

The owners and admins. of SM are not sponsering this trip nor are they condoning it.  Please make sure you understand, if you are going, we are on our own as a group!

Again, This is NOT an SM sponsered trip, we are a group of people going at OUR own risk!

You will be hearing from me soon about more specifics on the trip.

Ok, Monkeys,  I recieved some info. that includes several different dates.  I will email them to the current distribution list so we can decide on the best dates for the majority.  Though my hopes are that all who wants to can go.  

Please remember, this post is for limited communication only.  Please do NOT post anything specific here.  If anybody outside the distribution list has any questions, please email me.  I will respond to ONLY those I know to be "Monkeys".

With the above in mind, TO ALL REFUGEES AND THEIR COHORTS:

Should ANYTHING untoward happen to any of the individuals attending this or any other trip to Aruba, your statements/threats have been saved and will be forwarded to the appropriate US and International authorities. Got it?

Something about me wants to walk those streets, feel that constant trade-wind and smell the salty, iodine in the air.  

That place seemingly separated from reality and became closer and closer to fiction.  I would like to know what took hold that night.  I would like to feel it, breathe it, and walk through it, but the moon would have to be in the right phase.  The sky would have to agree.

Anything other than that would be a waste of time and probably dangerous!

Exactly Easy,  please join us in our expedition, thats exactly what it is all about!

Thanks Jusinsmama,  it's nice to know we all have those looking out for us and have our backs.

This trip can be only what we make it to be.    Even if we come home empty handed, it will be known, we tried only out of concern and love for those who suffer the most.

Juju, thanks so much for your concern.. There are enough going to keep each other safe.  Nobody will ever be out on their own at any time.  I refuse to allow anybody to deter us, which is exactly what some would like to see.  I refuse to give in to intimidation or fear!

I just wanted you all to know what an interesting trip we had.  It was  nice to meet so many monkeys.  You all are truly wonderful people and I am glad we found out some tidbits to chew on until the Dutch get this solved.  It's too bad, Aruba is beautiful, let's just hope they do the right thing finally...   Such a waste of a beatiful island.  But then again, there are many more beautiful islands to visit!

Please see my blog of pics and some things we saw.

Dihannah, where are the pics?
