Can't believe you have no takers.  Bora Bora looks amazing.
No one should need any convincing.
Well my most promising option just fell through today so looks like no bora bora for now.

Maybe we should start a petition for you ? But it's only fair that she take A week off also then...

I'm pretty sure your the fourth person in this thread to make that offer with me.

I'd rather convince your wife to go with you and you guys have a once in a lifetime trip for 1/3 of what the hotel rate is now...

I have 2 (extremely hard to find) TN J award tickets LAX-PPT that it seems I'm probably going to release unfortunately :'(

Dates are 06/09-06/17. Both flights are red-eyes.  I'm guessing the seats will go back to award inventory when cancelled and it's 125K AA per seat.

I also have the Hilton BOB booked 06/10-06/17 for 7 nights at 37.5K per night (currently 95K).

Want to go on the trip of a lifetime? Hit me up to work out the details.
Dan, did anyone hit you up on the offer? Have you already released those seats?

I guess you had 14 days to cancel, feel the pain. I was contemplating taking you up on the offer, but now I need to a hotel as well.....

Does it make sense to try and stock up on Hilton points if i plan on a trip here? Any other hotel which would be better?

By time you're ready to go they may require more points or/and leave the hilton  >:(. How far out are you planning your trip?
SPG has 2 properties there, but they are category 7.

Probably a year out.  I will work on getting SPG points as well to have myself covered.

From my experience of the Maldives, yes.
Any DDF babysitters :)?
