The cruise idea for the 2nd Forum Meeting is gathering steam!

Let me know where and when you will attend.

I WILL get some good CE classes for this.

Pam and others,

If you're looking for the best deal in the caribbean, consider the first or second week in February. Prices skyrocket the third week of Feb. (Valentines Day, Presidents Day, and a major school vacation week), drop a bit the fourth week, and rise again slightly in March. Most of March is also spring break, with different parts of the country having different weeks off.

Of course, being appraisers, money isn't a problem, right?! :rolleyes:

As much as I would love to meet many of you, I'm really sorry I can't sign up for this cruise. I would have voted for the Alaska cruise. My wife and I haven't been on a real vacation since 1987 so I surprised my wife at our daughter's wedding reception last saturday by announcing that with both of our daughters married now, we were going to take a cruise to Alaska next summer. You never know, maybe we'll book the same ship. I do hope there will be other trips in the future. For me, it has to be in the summer to a cooooooool place since I hate hot weather. I hope this trip works out and all of you have tons of fun. :D

My mom and dad made several driving trips to Alaska back in the 80's but the one trip my mom still always talks about was the one where they took the cruise ship up. She loved it and said the scenery was spectacular.

My personal choice is Alaska in the summer of '04'. Judy agrees.

Alaska sounds great...BUT...my workload is typically heavier in the summer months due to sales etc., so I am voting for a Feb or March cruise.

You got icebergs in Alaska in February and March. Much better to go when it's warm.

Liz,

Surprizingly, it all WILL be there when you get back!

Besides, I expect the rates will go up by then and we all will have slowed down a bit.

If you're interested in a Caribbean cruise, we found a big drop in rates between Spring Break and before June.
