We had to renew our GE this year. The wife's was able to be done online. I had to have another interview. But instead of going to CLT airport I was able to secure an appointment and did the interview via Zoom. That took all of about 3 minutes. I asked the agent why I had to go this route. He told me it was just random as there were no red flags.

Considering the size and prominent location, I thought the architect did an excellent job in blending the structure into the hilltop. A dream property.

"A bottle of rum, cigars and cheap souvenirs" - memorize it and say the same thing every time. You never know when you're going to get a new/overzealous customs agent and it sounds a lot more honest than being unprepared or saying "nothing".

Our friends buy waaaaay too much jewelry every year and they declared it once not knowing any better. After wasting a bunch of time and scrambling to find $39 or whatever like the OP (they would only take cash) one of the agents whispered to them saying not to make a declaration like that ever again.

And let's hope that this is the last one for a long while, and we can stop watching Weather Channel most of the day. .

Hurricane Ian's eyewall passed directly over the Dry Tortugas yesterday evening with 120mph winds, making it the first unofficial Florida landfall. Irma damaged some of the moat wall back in 2017, and that storm was about 100 miles to the east.

Wishing everyone affected by the storm the best.

I have two liquor cabinets, one for the everyday stuff and one lockable cabinet that's for my collection of bourbons, scotches and ports. The regular one usually gets cleaned out whenever our (adult) kids and their friends come for ski or beach weekends.

I felt bad calling when all the airlines are busy with Ian, but, after some unpleasant exchanges with a completely incompetent agent via chat I went ahead and plugged my phone in on speaker and listened to elevator music for 45 minutes while working until I got a live person with Delta. After the initial attempt of them trying to keep me on a redeye, and the person clearly understanding what my complaint was, she said yes she should could put me back on the afternoon flight to ATL that was only 13 minutes different than what I previously booked. She just had to go get override codes. 10 minutes later she was back on and fixed everything.

I can't think of any reason other than trying to get me on cheaper flights that they would try such a thing seems how the price has doubled since I booked in May. Complete scam IMO.

It just keeps getting better and better everyday!!! AND! now pay again for the tents??? There are some people getting very rich on this disaster of a project!!! It's funny, this building went up fast from the old airport. In this span they could have built two completely new buildings had they contracted Turner construction company out of NYC!! Well we'll see, 22 and a wake up!!!

Steve,
It was very easy. They want you there pretty early to fill out customs paperwork, but are very friendly about it and helpful.

Boat left on time to Jost. Ride over was easy and we lined up at customs and it went pretty smoothly. Maybe 15 minutes.

Plenty of taxis to take where you wanted to go. Everyone was back at the appointed time to catch the ferry, so it left promptly. I think we pulled out at 3?

It was very smooth operation.

Ellen

Now that my wife retired and I'm semi retired we stay alot longer. Yes 2 weeks wasn't enough for us either. Last year we stayed 4 weeks in Orient Bay and this year it will be 6 weeks. We can't wait! Now over the years we have gotten to know a few owners and managers of places in Orient Bay. Talking to them directly we have found very good deals for extended stays. That being said I suggest you realy know and trust them because your working without a net. In that there are some guarantees when you use an internet platform or local realtor. I remember you from years ago too.

"I haven't seen them at all over the last two years. Probably a good think with the amount of alcohol consumed there........."

I wholeheartedly agree.
