it looks like ill be having 15 straight days off as i have a short working week before i go to mexico,really looking forward to it....10 days on holiday and 5 days to get over the jetlag! ;D
....and there I was think you were going on a 5 star holiday for a full fortnight ! you disappoint me  :'(

i could only afford 10 days at a gourmet all inclusive hotel with 24 hr room service on the caribbean coast this year...... ::)roll :'( ;D

Daz, room service is called room service because its there 24 hours. Itís there so they can flog your wallet when the restaurants and bars are closed.  Its in all hotels, 1* or 9*, its nothing special.

24 room service is part of the all inclusive so no extra charges in our hotel.... 8)

That's the difference.....

Couldnít pay me to go AI. Too chavvy. Much prefer wandering around finding nice places to eat/drink.
Not just stuck in the same place with a ridiculous bracelet just to order local beers etc.
Each to their own though.

the place were staying at is as far from chavvy as you could imagine mate,in places like this its not just local drinks that are included in the AI but all the international brands too....not that it bothers me as i dont drink but my missus does.... 8)

But still stuck in the same boring restaurant every night with the same boring value for moneyers.

No thanks.

theres 11 restaurants in our hotel! ;D

gourmet all inclusive is different than the normal AI places.....its adults only so no kids which is great......the food will be outstanding.....the yanks holiday in mexico a lot and they dont put up with bad food/service like some british do.... ;)

The above bolded part is good enough reason to avoid holidaying in Mexico imo 😂

Window Cleaning Issues / Re: SLX/xtreme hybrid pole.....
« Last post by AuRavelling79 on Today at 07:48:51 pm »
I'm trying a little experiment on my new "xtreme 20".

I am putting a wrap of insulation tape below each clamp in the hope that the top inch will not wear. After three months I will remove the tape and then after another three I will replace it. This means that when I shorten the pole then I am spreading the wear over two commonly used clamp points instead of one. Hopefully it will last longer before getting thin at the top of each section.

The only downside is that the closed length is about 3" longer. But that is not a problem to me.
We shall see.

Don't think I've been to a hotel since I was a kid.

We go abroad at least once a year but always go self catering.

Prefer my own space in a holiday home or villa

I snapped section #3 on an SLX-22 last week. I've got a few old SLX-22 poles lying around that I can nick a section from, they come in useful when I snap a section.

I can't abide hotel food. Take me out of the place and let me taste the locals grub. I go away to taste the place as well as soak up the sun.

Just as well sit under a sun-bed for two weeks if you're not going to absorb the culture.

ill go to a cenote and do some outdoor swimming one day and a trip to chichen itza,the rest will be chilling out round the pool,gym and getting my leg over....as well as eating fantastic food every day with no cooking or washing up required.. :D

Ive only had my extreme 25 a couple of months but already starting to see wear on it  :-[

Its a great pole but not sure i would buy another...will see how long it lasts

ill guarantee youll snap a section one of these days adam,its very easy to do.....fantastic light poles but they are brittle esp the top 2 sections after a while....
