Otter Trip Report (Mini) 2/23-2/27 - 02/28/08 10:27 PM

Hey all! This was our best trip yet. We enjoyed meeting new boarders and locals alike. I'll keep it short and sweet.

2/23 -- Got in a little later than expected because of a lost bag that didn't make it until the next day. We did, however, hustle to Coco Locos by taxi to see klcman and Spurs at the bar with the tacos waiting for another round of skydivers to make it in. Fun! Some golfcarting with Spurs and klcman and lunch in central park. We had dinner at Portofino with immissing and KathyA. I just love the night sky in San Pedro. Even with plenty of moon, it's wonderful how many stars you can see on a boat ride up north.

2/24 -- Crawl, crawl, crawl. The tacos are masterful planners. I would be doing someone a disservice if I tried to recount all the names and faces we crawled with. Started with a great breakfast at Estelle's. What a blast. Mrs. O and I won a round of Bingo each at Pier Lounge, we hung-out at the Bayside for the first time (great place) and wound-up at Padros for great pizza and company. We were some of the few that went the distance -- my mom would be so proud. What a day!

2/25 -- Jump day -- whoohoo. If Spurs could do it, so could I. Thanks to reaper for just being a heck of an all-round nice guy. Check out the video (had to download some freeware to get it to play on the net, sorry for the advertisements) -- http://community.webshots.com/album/562638364qEJiMG?vhost=community -- dinner at El Patio and dancin with the Punta Boys at Canucks as well as hangin with Tiger, er, Dennis Wolfe at Roadkill.

2/26 -- Day at Caye Caulker with Spurs, klcman, Jim and Michelle (Betterbeer). We swam and drank at the Lazy Lizard and generally got burned and toasted at the same time. It's official, I am no longer the king of "slipped tongues." Mrs. O. was trying to mention how she was being "facetious" and it came out "fellatious" After we returned from behind the bar, I refused to tell the gang which one she really meant. Back to Pedro's for all you can eat pizza and a few drinks with skydivers at BCs.

2/27 -- Another leisurely breakfast at Estelle's before an early Tropic flight home. Booo.

Nice report Otter. I'm sorry you didn't enjoy the Jump so much, maybe next time you'll relax and really get excited about it. smile
We will have to co-ordinate much better ( or I should say I should) and meet up in SP next trip.

Excellent Otter! If you and the missus were smiling any more broadly, I bet your face would break grin

...and Dita, did you get that terrified look in your eye from skydiving?

Re: Otter Trip Report (Mini) 2/23-2/27 - 03/03/08 08:24 PM

Otter thank you so much for posting your report. The video was fantastic! I had to call my 12 year old in to watch who kept saying "cool! cool!" We enjoyed it. Glad you had such a good time! Rhonda

Re: Otter Trip Report (Mini) 2/23-2/27 - 03/03/08 10:23 PM

Glad to hear it. My boys (10 and 7) had much the same reaction. Methinks I'm going to regret showing them wink

Otter, I can't believe you were dancing with the Punta Boys at Crazy Canuk's and we didn't meet!!

Sounds (and looks) like you had another great trip. Good on ya.

Re: Otter Trip Report (Mini) 2/23-2/27 - 03/04/08 05:08 PM

I do need to take the boys. This has been a winter getaway for the Otter adults, but I agree the time has come for a family trip.

SS -- Are you kidding me?? That sucks. Of course it was very busy that night -- it was packed!

Hi guys! It's Mrs. Better Beer...aka Michele (out of hiding..hee hee spurs smile We had an absolute blast! It was so great meeting all of you and can't wait to do it again. I will have Better Beer send along a trip report with some pics too. We have some good ones.

Great catching up again with M&M O, the ubiquitous cowgirl, Reaper, E, the Tacos and all you other junkies and meeting Pug and the BB's (who are now confirmed ACoholics)!

Special note to P1: If E gets back before me, he'll settle up wink

Re: Otter Trip Report (Mini) 2/23-2/27 - 03/07/08 03:13 PM

I think it will only take a couple hunnert to settle with P1.I told him I paid up but not sure he believed me grin
Posted By: Otteralum

Re: Otter Trip Report (Mini) 2/23-2/27 - 03/07/08 03:44 PM

Careful now. I can imagine P1 would be as dangerous as any bookie when it comes to open tabs.

It wasn't "yours" to which I made reference, E. wink But thanks in advance for taking care of it! I'm pretty sure the guilty party will appreciate it.
