Sounds like fun!!
Other than Pete and Walter, we have never met any other DISers. I guess this would be a great opportunity. And since it's in New Jersey, even better.

Trouble is, our calendar is in a great state of flux. Just swapped May cruise dates to do a Panama Canal cruise instead of west coast/Alaska. Plus we're talking with a realtor in FL in just a couple of weeks. Who knows where that could lead?
