    Newbie from Minnesota

    Greetings all, new to this forum, but not new to Aruba. I've been around reading/lurking on the outside lately and finally joined. It's great to see the insightful and timely communication/information being shared by members/moderators pertaining to the new pandemic world we are now living in, the updates around the Island, shared experiences and general conversations. My wife and I have been traveling each year to Aruba now, over the last four years, and always look forward to a return the following year. Can't get enough. Our trip #5 is coming next week, with trip #6 coming in February. Keep up the great contributions to this forum.
    Cheers from the Frozen Tundra (aka Minnesota)!

    greetings to you 55 Green Chevy!
    welcome.

    yes indeed you are in the land of the deep freeze.

    I spent time in the Minneapolis/St Paul area many years ago for a number of months Winter into early Spring.
    It was horrible and cold and gray.
    Very much like New England, but at least in New England I had weekends off and got to ski.
    In Minnesota, I only had 1 day off a week and did not get in many outdoor activities.

    Enjoy your holidays and welcome!

    Thought you'd never ask
    One of my many bad habits.....I have a small collection of older muscle vehicles. Two of them happen to be from 1955, and of course, two of them happen to be green.

    Cool! A fun collection.

    When Robin comes back from her cruise she will love to see these. She and her husband collect cars as well.

    Since 1980, and throughout the many changes, we still love going downtown in Oranjestad.

    Welcome to the Forum.

    We're in Winnipeg, just a bit north of you. It's cold, but it's a dry cold; at least that's what we keep telling ourselves.

    Lots of good information here and the people are pretty friendly.

    Just by way of background, I'm a retired CPA and first started going to Aruba in 1980. I went there via Northwest Airlines and Eastern Airlines (remember them?) and the hospital was the biggest building on the island.

    Love to hear from you.

    Happy New Year.
