We are the token Minnesotans, late 50's. First came down March of 2002, expensive trip then. Flew all day...Minneapolis to Detroit, San Juan, and over on a turbo prop where shortly after takeoff the cockpit door swung wide open...flight attendant jumped up and quickly shut the door...this was as airport and aircraft security was ramping up after 9/11. Stayed at villa Wittenblau (sp) in Pelican Key. Every year but one since. Private villas, the Towers, but mostly Simpson bay Marina resort.

From PA Amish country with me 72 and my wife 68. Amish buggy going past the window right now! Been visitors since the start of the century with about 20 visits under our belts. Usually fly out of Baltimore or Phila. Started with stays at the Alamanda on Orient, but after a few years began renting villas to save money. Have stayed on the Dutch side a few times, but usually stay on the French side.

We both are 60 and live in SC. We found the island on a cruise stop in late 90's and now have been coming for our anniversary in October each year since 2008. We started with a week, but are up to 16 nights this year. We arrive next Friday.

Husband and I are in early 70's...first trip to Mullet Bay in 1985. Have never
missed a year other than 1999 when late Hurricane( I think it might have been Lenny) closed Royal Islander for our week 52. Started with 1 week also bought 3 additional. Now own at Rainbow Beach Club and stay almost 3 months during 2 to 3 trips. Still live on Long Island, NY but SXM is our very favorite place to be..love it, love it!! :

The wife and I are mid 40's and from Northern Michigan. Started visiting SXM about 5 years ago and have been back every year since then.

We will back when the island is ready for us!!

This is going to be a long wait, but the reward at the end will be worth it.

So, David, you posed the question. I think it's up to you to compile the results so far!!




I'm too busy biting my fingernails worrying about whether we're even gonna get to make the trip out from Boston Saturday morning due to Matthew !!! He's not heading anywhere near the Northeast, but unless I'm bad at geography, it seems like we'd be flying near this beast on the way to SXM. So far, flights between Boston and SXM haven't been mentioned on the JetBlue site. Hopefully that's a good sign! Gonna check flight status on Friday.

I would be very confident that JetBlue knows about flying around a storm...it might add a bit to the flight time but they are very used to it.

I would worry more about where your flight out of BOS is originating FROM...if it's the 1120a flight it will be coming from somewhere...hopefully not the mid-atlantic..I would guess NYC or west coast.
