Greetings from Houston!

A very good friend (and frequent poster on this forum) StewartG and his wife have been trying to get me to take a trip to Playa for EVER! Well, the planets have aligned themselves in such a way as to allow me to finally make the trip! See you all there the first week of February....hope to meet some of you at the peepmeet on the 5th!

Some friend if he hasn't even welcomed you here!

Although I've never actually met Stewart I think I can pretty safely say that you'll never have a dull moment with him around!
(And you won't have to worry being hungry either, him being the foodie he is... )

Welcome and have a great time!

I'll be there from Feb.1st through 6th. Looks like we'll miss the opportunity to share a cold one....or four......

If it's everything all of these posts claim it is though, I'm sure I'll be visiting again soon.

No kidding!!! Hehehehe! Some friend he is!

As for the tag-line above your avatar....are there really any agressive Dutch-dudes? I've had the pleasure of meeting a few Dutchmen....all very nice, mellow folks.

Don't think so (generally speaking), and I'll take that as a compliment.

As for the non-aggressive: it's a bit of a story I won't bother you with.

Clearly hanging around with a bad crowd, I see...

Y'all will like Colleen a lot better than me. She's nicer. Prettier, too.

Colleen - he could tell you, but then he would have to KILL you.

Hi Colleen & welcome!
Hubby and I made our first trip to Playa last year and booked our next trip shortly after! You'll love it! We'll be there from Jan. 31- Feb 4th, so we'll miss the big peep meet on the 5th (sniff sniff ) -- but maybe we'll see ya around somewhere else?? (planning to try to set something up for the night of the 1st, just been too distracted lately to get around to actually doing it!)
