Banana Jet Flight 722 to North Carolina is Now Boarding 

Calling Aura Alex, Bob "RealMan" Timm, Caroline Gerardo, Doug Dawes, Eileen Burns

Fred Griffin Florida Real Estate, Nina Hollander, Broker, Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP, Ryan Huggins - Thousand Oaks, CA, and Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can!


Your bags are on board the Banana Jet. Take a seat of your choice, set back, relax, and enjoy a glass of champagne before take-off.


Bonus that I get to meet Miss Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, Phoenix Broker. I am told by a reliable source that she will be our Captain on this flight.  



•    I am very familiar with Pebble Beach. It is a wonderful place to spend the day or weekend. But Golf?  What is golf?  
•    I am not at all into reality TV so staging with the brothers is out. Adding to that, I do not even know who Ina Garten is.
•    Paris? While dinner with Endre would be fun, Paris does not interest me. I will wait to have dinner with Endre and Diane when I visit the LA area. I will bring the champagne!
•    Secluded Montana Ranch Resort – Hum now you have my interest.  Yet, I am more of a water person.
•    Silobration Experience – A great way to check out Southern Utah and meet Miss Wanda. Instead, I am bringing Wanda to the Lake with me! 


Lake Adventure in North Carolina Hosted by

 Debe Maxwell, CRS

  A wonderful way to spend 20,000 ActiveRain POINTS! This is an amazing DEAL! 


My 10 guests are people I follow and people I have not met in person. I want to meet them so what better way than to invite them to board the Banana Jet and join me at beautiful Lake Wylie in North Carolina.  Bonus is that I get to meet Debe Maxwell, her husband Ray, and her fur baby family too! 



During our weeklong stay at the beautiful Hotel Maxwell on Lake Wylie, I expect my guests and I will get to know each other better as we have fun playing on the lake.  We will cook together and enjoy craft cocktails.   



In the evening hours as we wind down a day of fun and laughter, we will watch Mother Nature show off as we are graced with her beautiful sunsets ... and count our blessings for the bounty and beauty of the day. 

My entry in the ActiveRain Point Store is Open! Let the July Challenge Begin!

Hosted by Miss Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, Phoenix BrokerCarol Williams, and Kathy Streib

It was a quiet and peaceful day mostly relaxing Myrl Jeffcoat - until the explosions started around 8:30 pm. It sounded like a war zone for several hours. 

Wishing you a great week as well. Thank you for stopping by and commenting.

My Gosh! I am speechless!!!

Kathleen, thank you for the invite! I am honored to be included on your list and to have the opportunity to "rub shoulders" with you and your famous AR guests!!

Also, many thanks to the host, Debe Maxwell, CRS: I am a cheap guest, and if I could drink more champagne, could you please provide me with something that I could easily make a "soft landing"? After the second bottle, I mean glass!!

I'll start packing! I can't😍 wait!!!

P.S. Congratulations on the featured post. May I copy your post format?

Hello Aura Alex - I look forward to you teaching me how to make a vegetarian Thai dinner for everyone. I am a cheap guest as well. I cannot drink too much - or else I fall asleep!  You will have all the comforts you need - all landings will be "soft". 

Yes, Indeed you may copy my format.  Have fun!

What an all star cast with lots of fun, conversation, and nature's beauty perking, brewing,  and being served up at the Maxwell House!   Such an incredible setting to enjoy a week together with your guests being hosted by the Right and Left Coast seestas!!!!     

I think that Ryan Huggins may be disappointed that you didn't invite Gary Keller to sit beside him on the Banana Jet to recruit him the entire flight to North Carolina!!!!   ^_~
