He must be waiting for @whYME
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

The hope was that if he's busy enough with this he wouldn't bug me about Cuba, but alas, no such luck :(

At least bugging still helps

Haven't been on DDF in (gasp) a couple weeks and just read through this whole thing.

First off, wow, wow and WOW...I can't wait for the rest!

Just to defend Davidmal for a sec, I guess I'm kinda JAPy but I think he brought up some good points because I'm so ignorant that it never occurred to me that there wouldn't be AC at the place!  ;D

And then in your whole inevitable Halacha discussion you mentioned having to activate a pump just to flush the toilet and that pretty much sealed it that as much as I think this trip is AMAZING it probably isn't a couple's trip that would work for us....I showed this TR to my DH and told him we should do it as a stopover on our next trip to Panama and he was like "No way, don't even think about it"...lol.

Seriously, can you do a segment of the TR going through some of the details of what kinds of things are different because you are so isolated and not on the grid?  Electricity, gas for cooking, did you just have a burner or what was actually in the kitchen, where does the waste go (into holding tanks?), etc.

I think people will find it interesting and helpful (like once I learned about having to attach sewer lines to an RV I realized my family would not be renting one...totally OT but husbands of two close friends who rented them independently managed to spray their toilet refuse all over themselves and their surroundings)!  Can't wait for the rest and especially to know if your flight times worked out so you were able to get your killer hamburger again at Pita Plus in Panama!  :P

It depends on your priories, as I've said upthread. If you need pampering and a fancy place, this simply isn't for you. But if you want an adventure, absolute privacy, and beaches and snorkeling all to yourself, run and book it.

I'll discuss all the points you mention about the facilities in the next segment, hopefully to be posted very soon.

About that RV snafu ;D... I've emptied plenty of holding tanks with nary an issue. The connections are designed to keep you clean and away from any gunk.

And - spoiler alert :P - I did make it to Panama and my burger.

I can't wait to see the pic you took of the burger with "food" mode on your cell phone.

Lol...glad you got your burger! Seriously, thank you for taking the time to write all this up.  Organizing charters and other stuff is not a joke and to lay all this info out for everyone, really opens a whole new world of travel opportunities for people!

I might be more worried about finding a place to empty it

You can't post in this thread until it's the next segment. Saw your name, and actually got excited
