Hi, I just discovered this wonderful site as we plan our second trip to beautiful Bonaire. We are staying at Buddy's again(loved it last time, 3 long years ago) and I'm wondering about the logistics of that awful AA 6 AM departure. Checking out of Buddy's, getting to airport, returning truck, breakfast, etc...

We were there last year and here is our story on 6:00 a.m. We decided to take auto back night before as you have to be at airport by 4:00 a.m. or Plaza took us at that time....AA went through every bag of every person in line....Seems like a hassel but we just went with it and had no problems....Then of course you have the down time...So I guess you could check your car in then but just to rush rush for us that early...We will be there in 2 weeks for 12 days and will opt to check in auto the night before and take hotel transportation to airport next a.m. Anyway hope that helps some...

As to the vehicle, ABCarental is open at 5AM...this gives you time to drop your bags off at the desk (with somebody to watch them), then drop the vehicle off and leaves plenty of time to go to the little diner and grab something for breakfast. This is a GOOD idea because there is NO food on the flight to San Juan.

Now that I think about it they took several items from people....ie bug spray, in the pump bottle, polish remover, hair spray, etc....I take travel size as to not have to give huge amount away if they choose to like, I mean keep my brand....I just had to wonder what they do with all the stuff they keep??? I hope it goes to someone who needs it....

Linda, I remember you telling me that now...oh, and thanks for spelling mousse correctly, spellcheck didn't get mine and I thought it looked funny! The worst part about departing that morning with you and Kelly, was when he opened my bag and I had just *thrown* all my stuff in my suitcase and it looked a mess! I remember looking at the guys case behind me and he had everything neatly folded and in order...i'm just glad they didn't decide to open my large plastic garbage bag with my stinky gear! Would have probably cleared the airport!

I have used CK's system in the past. By being near first in line to check in, I can go back to the hotel and shower and change after pushing the heavy bags around (it has been allowed-- after all, I paid for the whole night until check out time). That makes for a much more comfortable trip. The car gets checked in the second time around.

We also use Glen's system -- only difference is I set the coffee up at the house before we leave for the airport. Then we do the very early check in, head back to the house where the coffee is waiting, shower and head back to the airport for truck drop off. Last year we were lucky because the other couple with us had one more day so they took us on the second run to the airport then followed the above procedure on their departure day.

I was thinking of Kelly's RAT, actually! LOL. Thought maybe Cynde Lee took the fella home in a can and that is what they confiscated. LOL!!! Carole

Oops...but then again, Joe and I are always on the 3:15 p.m AJ flight....sorry about that guys! Carole

Wow! You guys are the best, thanks for all the suggestions. I love the idea of going early and checking in for the flight, then back to the hotel to shower and have some coffee and breakfast.

How about collie flour?
|By Carole Baker (Supreme BonaireTalker - Post #2535) on Saturday, August 30, 2003 - 1:15 pm:|
Oh, but Linda it's such a messy job trying to get that collie flour out of their fur! LOL. Good ones, guys.

No No. The address was correct. That's where the Bonaire donkies go to eat BBQ dropped on the floor by sloppy (or sloppely?) eating tourist. Think it's at some national park at the north end of the island.

I'm still trying to figure out how you could write ANYTHING on a mouse's can.

Hi, Grace! Boy, do I ever wish I were living on Bonaire....that would be heavenly and is our dream. Nope, stuck in Northern New Jersey, unfortunately....along with about one billion other New Jerseyites and their SUV's!! Way too crowded around here for our liking...that's one of the many reasons we fell in love with Bonaire even before the plane hit the ground...we could see from the air that it was wide open space and natural land and waters.
