Thanks to all for the great advice! After reading comments and talking with friends, we have basic travel plans in place. My husband and I are starting our visit on Oahu to visit the WWII memorial. The kids and grandkids are going straight to Kauai where we will spend a little over a week. We have a large house with a pool and two cars rented (per great advice from TTOLers). Now we need to work out the details. Bought “The Ultimate Kauai Guidebook” but I’m a teacher and no time to read until next week. Thanks again to all!

Thank you all. Very helpful. Yes - I remember the other road now. Didn't know if it was still good to use.

On volleyball, it was curious to me when it left because it happened quickly. Wondered if that was a covid thing or permit thing or 'just because'...

I will check back in late June about how summer numbers are looking to know when chairs might be filled in the mornings. smile

Meanwhile, trivia night and open mic night canceled in Coral Bay due to COVID outbreaks. Symptoms are minimal for everyone I have spoken to. We have six close friends presently testing positive for COVID - two went to Jazz Fest, two went to visit Mom in the hospital, two work in villa management. We are masking indoors again.

Cheers, RickG

The recommended time for international is 3 hours, as Scuba said. We try to do no less than 2.5 hours.

Have you EVER been held up at the Causeway bridge? I think we have been held up once there, for about two minutes.

It is concerning to me that this has happened, as the Causeway is not that old. It seems like maybe proper maintenance has not been done?

Anyone know whether BEYC closes for the season and when they reopen? For example Saba reopens on October 16. Curious if BEYC has same type of thing. Also, any other places on VG also close for season?

Thanks in advance!

I am going to close this thread as it has become a target of spammers.

[quote=SVNorthStar]I don't share the certainty of others that we have enough info to know that operator was plainly out of bounds here, as likely as it may seem.{/quote]

I don't think anyone has implied he was out of bounds; rather he failed to properly attach to the mooring.

Correct as long as you're vaxed. 15 for mandatory insurance and you're good to go. Negative test day before to return.

AT&T is the same $10 plan. As soon as you take your phone out of Airplane Mode the account gets charged $10 for 24 hours. That timer starts from the moment you turn on +24 hours not the calendar day.
We survived for two weeks in France with just Wi-Fi and Whats App. Wi-Fi is everywhere, and most the restaurants and bars have free service for customers. Apple facetime works also.

We also used Google maps for driving and walking around in the city. While we had service I would put in the way points and it downloaded the maps required. You do not require Wi-Fi for GPS, but you do need Wi-Fi for the maps.

The $10 pay as you go works out - if you need it you have it. If you do not need you do not pay.

If you go to lagoonies it will be assumed that you are a sailor or work in that trade. You are almost certain to meet people who are at some stage of sailing up or down or in or out of the Caribbean nearly any hour they are open due to their reputation and proximity by dingy to places that sailors frequent. The food and drink is fine and the happy hour is an outstanding deal, but all of that is more less secondary to the people and their stories.

Is Garfield still on Anegada? Is there a current contact for him?

Probably so. Haven't been on the 590e before so am sure I will learn a lot about how this particular one works. But with 12 crew on board hard to say what demands will be made on energy consumption. And we will be a little more than a week.

Thanks for the heads up Jason - these are the little curves that are not really evident in the government issuances.

Luxbar is great. Needs more exposure. Our group enjoyed a round of Pappy’s and some great friendship. Barkeep is great and very knowledgeable. The shop, across the street , has the best higher brands at good prices.( just not open all the time)
