Demographics of TTOL members? age/loc
      #1709733 - 10/04/16 07:55 AM (66.30.252.108)

Just wondering where the majority of posters hail from. As far as age demographic, it appears that most members are late 40's to late 70's or so, and are from the midwest., although I see posters are also from CT and MA as well. Is this pretty accurate, or am I waaaay off?

Most of our members I think are closer to their 50's and 60's and I would say that a large number are from the northeast..

Give us from the midwest some credit! We have to work really hard to get to SXM and maybe appreciate it even more. 93 days and counting.

I agree that folks from the Midwest especially have to pay more to get to SXM, but that really wasn't the question. Never really did a formal survey, but it seems to me that a lot of timeshare folks in particular are from the NE.

We're from NE and we're in our 60's & 80's but not TS people. Started going to SXM via charters in the late '70's, .then Eastern, American and now Jet Blue direct from Boston.

When we talk about moving we always say: "It has to be near an airport that gives direct, Non-stop flights to SXM." Haven't moved yet though.

We're from the Philadelphia area, and I'm 39 (again). Actually it's 72 (ouch) and retired. My wife, Cleta (Rabby on here), is 60 and still working.

Early 60's, and the better half just retired. Gave up cruises in 2011. Sitting on any SXM beach and watching the cruisers have to get up and leave early in the afternoon is a treat.Trying to figure out how to stretch 1 week a year to more.French side studios are just fine for us. Just need a place to crash at night. When you get away from MI winters, you want to be outside every minute.

Just a guess but I'm thinking the majority of us are probably between 45 and 65, of course with variables on either end. We were fortunate enough to discover SXM when we were in our late 20's so we've been luckier than most in that we've had 43 years worth of annual trips so far and still hoping for many more.

The northeast does offer a lot of nonstop flights so it would make sense a great number of regular visitors are from this particular corridor. But that said, there are a lot of Canadians who visit as well. And a lot of mid-westerners, too, but I think the northeast from New Hampshire down to the mid-Atlantic states probably are the majority because of nonstop flights and generally better pricing.

Personally, I think we're a pretty mixed bag both in ages and locations and the only real common denominator is our mutual enjoyment of this one special island. That's my story and I'm stickin' with it!!
