Hilton Head out

Well, it looks like there won't be a DVC Hilton Head vacation this summer.

The first roadblock was the airfares. It's a pretty big chunk of change to fly from Chicago to Savannah, or even to Charleston. The savings to fly to the further away and presumably bigger city were not enough to justify the 2 to 3 hour drive from there to the Hilton Head Resort. But we had pretty much talked ourselves into doing it anyway.

So this morning, we called DVC to try to book. Bad news. No availability at all for the week that includes the 4th of July.

This is just about 5 months in advance. As a DVC owner with no points at Hilton Head, we can book as early as 7 months in advance. I have heard recently that HH is a hard one to get into, since it is relatively small compared to other properties.

Oh well. On to plan B, or C, which will apparently not involve DVC points. Might be banking more of them next year.
