I sat back the other day and was mentioning to Rob that its interesting that each and everyone on the aruba.com board is an "expert" in something related to aruba...here's my take...
Its fun reading posts, and I say to myself often," Lets see, so and so will answer that question, so I won't bother"...
THE PLAYERS...

Lizzardo- the "news" and animal rescue
Cerry- island history and tours
Bully- everything and taxi's, Balashi
Sannic44- island nooks and cranies, San Nicolas, Charlies, great out-of- the way places to eat and see,a resident author and "knows everyone "
Robo, arubamark, qlaval, me- Rennaissance suites and downtown, social club for Rennaissance time shares
Qlaval- also Ocean club
Danadog- everything, tours, drinks, Quad riding and tricks
Ehamptite-Bucuti, MVC, duty free shopping
TDS ken- tierra del sol
Liz -aruba lover- dining, menu's, general aruba stuff

Cindy, I do the same thing (which I guess accounts for my low number of posts in comparison to some!). ;) I always expect one of the "experts" to answer the question...and my list of experts compares with yours! My contributions would consist of Bucuti and MVC, plus some of the restaurants.

Fun post! :D

This is a great post and it is soo true. I enjoyed reading it.
As an aside, I will do a long report on Aruba, next week when I finally have a little more time. DH will be leaving and DC (darling cousin) will be arriving! Update on restaurants and the surf club, of course and a few more tidbits;).

I can always give restaurant reviews to include quality/cost of food and atmosphere. And I think by February, I'll be an expert in traveling w/pets.

I'm an expert on directing people interested in aruba to come to this site. does that count? lol. I've only been to aruba once, 2nd trip coming up so I can't qualify for anything besides that.
