I see a number of posts with people wondering if they should go to STJ, my answer is absolutely go! But then again, I am also the person who visits sick relatives, helps at animal rescues, I get island time, have tons of disaster experience, can empathize and sympathize, and have a strong understanding of our role, as vacationers, in the long term recovery. None of these islands will return as premier vacation destinations without you. If you love the islands, go! If you just want a cold beer and a nice view and will be put off by not having everything perfect, don't. Once the linemen depart later this month, the island will be your private playground. Think --- easy parking at Hawksnest, private beach at Salt Pond, great dining options, and people who will genuinely care that you have come. This should be a no brainer. There are places available, resources are plentiful, and the weather will be amazing, add in a twist of adventure, it will be perfect.
