Good Evening All, I made It! American Air and VI Cargo were tremendous helps, the hospital has provided me a couple months free temporary housing. A very nice lady at Office Max told me how to get to the grocery store (sort of a warehouse type place). So I can get from here, I think it's called the St. Croix Club, to the hospital, Kmart and the grocery store. I'm not exactly sure where I am but to my right (as I face the water) is a large factory and the sea planes pass this beach several times a day-heading to the right. I'm guessing that Christiansted is also to my right but how do I get there? I can't find a map anywhere. The adventure has begun but I'm on shakey legs at the close of day one. Many thanks for your help. VT

It sounds like you're at Club St Croix on condo row. That's not a factory -- it's our power plant (WAPA). Go out to the front road and turn left. Take the next left and then bear right. [you'll see road barriers blocking part of the road -- the ditch has been there about six months]. You'll pass WAPA and the fire house on your left. Take the first left after the fire house; that will take you down almost to the water. Turn right at the end of the road. Follow that through the public housing development to the first stop sign. Turn left. Follow along past the seaplane base on your left to the end of the road. If you're driving turn right and right again and turn into the (free) government parking lot. You're in Christiansted. Come out of the parking lot and walk into town. Lots of places will have tourist maps. In fact, the office at Club St Croix should have them too.

I found that it is better to get both small maps that they give away. There are roads marked on but not on the other. There are hardly any street signs but the roads have numbers. However if you ask a local ( anyone who has been there over three years ) they will not know the road numbers, only road names. Some roads have more than one name, such as Centerline / Queen Mary / highway 70.
They also use markers such as turn at the old gas station. I looked for twenty minutes on a two mile stretch looking for an old gas station or building. I finally saw below the weeds the foundation that was a gas station 20 years ago :@)
GOOD LUCK
You will finally get it figured out.;)

Don't be afraid of getting lost, that is often the best way to learn the island. If you hit the water you know it's time to turn around! Stx pocket map is usually the best little map of the island. You can definitely find it at any of the hotels, airports, and some of the excursion places. Welcome to Stx 🙂
