    My vault sample was checked in and scanned at 12:30pm or so. Lets see how long it takes them to process the sample. I was worried about the overnight shipping part but that appears to have gone just fine. If they get the results back today that would make me smile- not that I need them after receiving my local test back already.
    Trip 33 begins on July 15.

    All is good. We did our ED card and received the "coveted" green check! We got our vault test results at 4pm today- just incredible turnaround time for the Vault! I am impressed. The 2 women who worked with my wife and myself were very nice and walked us right through the process. If you are in an area where testing is limited and the vault test is available...I would highly recommend it. As mentioned by Edgar (aruba ace) previously it is a very straight forward process- thanks Edgar!

    I now feel like I usually do with less than 48 hours to landing, and it feels good! It was a bit more stressful as I don't really like the unknowns...maybe that is why this is my 32nd trip to Aruba? I love Aruba and know exactly what to expect=perfection, so why would we ever go elsewhere?

    Okay, let me try and do a quick recap of our day yesterday before I go and have breakfast. Alarm went off at 3am....out the door by 4am. Check-in at the airport was a breeze. Breakfast at the airport may have been the worst eggs ever but what can you do. The flight was uneventful and we landed early! I made up for my lack of sleep by sleeping basically the entire trip down! I feel asleep prior to takeoff...I guess I was tired. Going through customs was a breeze! We checked no bags and were in our cab in less than 15 min or so!

    We were at the hotel before noon! Our taxi driver Richard was excellent. We got checked in. They upgraded us to an ocean front room which is amazing. After checking in we went to the club and reconnected with all of the folks up there. Agnes did not let my glass ever empty. After 4 bacardi and diets and a wonderful lunch on the club level we went for a walk. We came back to the hotel chatted with some friends. We took a "short" 3 hour nap- slept through dinner so we just went back to the club for some more drinks.

    We gambled for a few hours together...lost our cash and I tucked the wife into bed before heading back to do donate some more money. Oh well. Looks like another nice day today. Little overcast right now.
    Trip 33 begins on July 15.

    Wow..... glad you got there safely and w/o issue. Get ahold of the casino and get your money back!
    A little nonsense now and then is relished by the best of men!
