125k AA is the easy part.

Timing/schedule is where it gets tuff.
Advantages of being single :P

This is becoming very hard to find a friend with 125K AA. Oh the hardships of being single, if I had a +1 I'd just blow 250K :))

Any ddf'ers want to split this?
I'm not sure how conducive BOB is to bar prep...Otherwise, I'm free then.

 I was never in BOB or MLE but from what I hear it is very boring to go single.

Never said otherwise, I agree with you. But timing is easier single and being that I am currently not married, and I don't see that changing in the next 27 days, I will look into my options now.

I'm not sure how conducive BOB is to bar prep...Otherwise, I'm free then.
Very conducive! Helps clear the head :) Imagine how much better you can study when you return. Is the Mrs. ok with it? Why don't you take the flights yourself?

Been to MLE single. T'was EPIC! Really once in a lifetime amazing experience. Well that is until I go to BOB ;)

At the W. I did it with a friend. Obviously it is much more memorable with a spouse, and a lot tougher to lay out the cash/points for yourself. But it really was amazing. Snorkeling, sitting under a full sky of stars, the water were all enjoyable and I'll never forget how amazing it was. I had a good opportunity and took it. Similar to the opportunity I have now with BOB...

I am trying to convince someone to join me in Bora Bora for 1 week. What activities are there to do? Obviously snorkeling and laying on the beach. Anyone know what is offered free by Hilton or how I can reach them to ask? I also can't figure out how I'd get around the island or do people just stay in their resorts?

ETA- Just found this "Canoes, kayaks, paddle boards & hobby cat (guided tour) are complimentary"

Can that somebody be me?  Very little convincing needed! A friend just went and after seeing the pics I'm just about ready to hop in a plane. How are you flying ?

It'd be this deal. I believe you can book from your location and we'd meet up in LA... Split the room and activities, I figure pay $100 the first three nights for OWB and hope they leave us there (staying on a Diamond account) if we get moved to a regular room I figure it out then.
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.

Can't believe you have no takers.  Bora Bora looks amazing.
No one should need any convincing.
