Quote:Strgazr27, please do me a favor and don't all you guys get mad. This is a girl thing. Please do not refer to your significant other as "the wife". To a gal, this term is demeaning; at least to this gal. Thanks. You could say, "my wife, "name" or just my wife; "the wife" makes her sound like a "possession" sort of like "the dog" or "the cat" or "the phone", etc..Thanks,Dorothy, "the crabby old lady"
Quote:Quote:Just wondering, but do you have to put a down payment to get on the list?No, you just give AP your contact details. No obligation on either side - they don't have to ever offer me a Traveler, for example, but if they do I don't have to buy it.Quote:And can you pay for the everything up front, therefor not having to worry about the funds being there or not when your name comes up because they already have your $$?Not really (although I guess you can put the money in savings/fine wine/rare stamps/Naglers until notification comes). As there's no guarantee that AP will ever supply you with whatever you're on 'the list' for there would be no sense in paying for it up front. Once you're notified, you have a month or so to come up with a 50% downpayment, followed by the final 50% before delivery.

Quote:>>>Nother thumbs up to the guy with principals!!<<<Being principled doesn't say anything about what those principles are. We like when somebody evinces the same principles we do, and hate when they evince principles we don't agree with, especially when the guy we dissagree with is more highly principled than we are.
