Are any of you interested in the following deals?
* Orlando: 3 nights for $69
* Las Vegas: 2 nights for $89
* Waikiki: 4 nights for $699
Fair warning: The catch is that you have to attend a timeshare sales presentation (2 hours). The timeshare is a nice one, M and I have been happy with ours, it’s very flexible and tradeable and the rooms are very high-quality. Email me if you’re interested…
We are currently in Vegas. I think I really like our timeshare. The room is beautiful, and has a full on kitchen, washer/dryer, shower and whirlpool tub, and TV in the front room and another in the bedroom.
Also, the internet access is not only high-speed, it’s also free/unlimited. Not that I expect to be camped out in the room all week or anything.
Gambling, buffet, and comedy show tonight.
We changed our vacation plans a little, and we will now be going to Vegas in the dead of winter, instead of going to Florida.

For those who didn’t quite read all the details of our trip, we are now proud owners of a timeshare known affectionately as Hilton Grand Vacations Club on the Las Vegas Strip.
Here are some facts…
