Hi folks, thanks for the well wishes and concerns.
This is my B Day in Tahiti. 10 days of sailing, scuba, snorkeling and Island hopping with a couple days on the end to land cruise. Boy was it hot. 85-105* with 100% humidity Rained three times a day then they turned on the steam. Just about killed this Minnesota guy. Good food, and drink, many laughs, beautiful sights to see. Did I mention the beautiful sights to see, lots of history and beautiful sights to see. Camera is in quarantine with all my stuff for a few days but I'll get the pix sorted out and give a full report.
Thanks again for your concerns. Guess I'm going to have to do a better job briefing my other family here at SMC.

Well Tyler Howell, DO YOU THINK YOU CAN JUST DISAPPEAR AND NOT TELL ANYONE??????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am glad that you are back and that you had a good time. Was the sights there worth looking at? Also, it looks like you might have got some sun or are you blushing from the pretty ladies by your side.


PS You have a lot of Pic Policing to do.:)

Tyler, good to have you back! I'm glad you had a great birthday. I don't have to tell you that we'll need those pictures as soon as you get them. Good thing we had nice weather here in Minnesota today (65). It will give you time to get used to Minnesota again. Only going to be 30 tomorrow.

Welcome home

Tyler that picture is the greatest.

Its like when a cat disappears. You eventually think its gone and then it shows up with kittens. You even have the pictures to prove it!

Welcome back!! Based on that picture, I'm wondering how much Scuba and sight-seeing really was accomplished??? I can believe the eating and drinking part, though!! How was Quinn's??

What the heck does this mean?? Another over reaction to 911??

..... Camera is in quarantine with all my stuff for a few
I haven't been out of the country in a while.....are they now quarantining cameras???

A picture is worth a thousand words, and sometimes even more. Just where was that Tyler said he went?
