the report on settling in is pretty easy.

rum is cheap
be nice to everyone, they will be nice back
be patient, things can be slower
drive like a wild man sometimes, drive like an old lady at others
be persistent and smile, you will find a job quickly if you keep trying
wapa sucks, use candles
swim in the ocean every morning with your dog, it cures hangovers quicker than painkillers
bush rum (mama wanna)? gets you wasted
if i had a dollar for every flat tire ive gotten, i would be rich
and the best of all, an island quote "beer is for hydration, rum is to get drunk. if you have no problem with no-one, you can drink anytime you want"

i moved to stx, on my 3rd day on island i bought a car, 5th day on island i got hired working full time. one thing i have learned is that moving to st. croix really is possible. just work hard, plan a lot, but also follow your dream, thicken up your wallet, and you will find your way. and most important of all, crack many bottles of rum, happy new year everyone

I'd be careful of the alcohol consumption. It can overtake you pretty quick.

Hi my name is Trey Whitchard. Im going to be moving there to st croix in the next month or so. Im kind of a spur of the moment type person but im trying to get a little more information before i do. The plan is for me to move on down and get settled before my wife and daughter joins me in a few months. ive never been there and was wondering if you might have some insight or advice before i leave, especially regarding basic $$$ needed and in regards to my dog, shes a very well behaved great dane named Ellie Mae. that you.

People often enjoy rum when they first move here. You have to be careful.

Somebody please put this thread out of its misery. Poor Tommy starts with a post about cute iguanas and ends up being scolded for liking rum. Sheesh!

Really????? The guys post started out okay then slipped into his love of drinking...Reading between the lines sometimes helps turn on a light bulb.Isn't it always what people say after the fact......"oh I never said anything to him...."gosh I didn't see that coming" oh I didn't know they had a drug problem"......... cause your eyeballs can't see...you don't listen...and you don't have the guts to say anything......so check yourself next time before you defend a potential cliff someones climbing....bottoms up all you teetotalers:S

thanks bathiel!

now hold on, i just finished my first 1.75L of dark cruzan for the day so its hard to type. i often find a lot of negativity on this website, and it seems completely out of touch with the island. also it seems anything a person writes on here is taken very seriously, no jokes!

my major question is a lot of people seem very worried about me drinking some rum and talking about it, but what about the other 45,000 people i see drinking ALL DAY on street corners, local bars (which are on every street corner), and basically anywhere you go on stx?? instead of being worried about a successful young guy, with a wife and dog, who supports his family and has a couple cocktails whenever he wants, maybe some of you should shut down your computers and go help out your local community that might have a severe problem with booze.

on that note i have finished my second 1.75L of dark cruzan for the day. almost a gallon!!

hahaha. Rum! This board is very critical, as it is helpful. Drinking the rum helps the island. Everywhere I look, people are always drinking, day and night. If I didn't come from a similar place, I would be a mess. I got drunk early yesterday intentionally, because I've worked doubles all week and wanted to get some sleep. Now, Jouvert is happening under my window so I'm up.

And when consuming your favorite beverage don't forget to drink it out of a good-to-go reusable cup... 😎

I had a bunch of neat iguana stories to add to the mix but I'll just roll them out some other time as they're not going anywhere!

Thanks,

As the great George Thorogood said, "When I drink alone, I prefer to by myself...or with iguanas."

Or maybe that was the remix.

A wise man, that old George.
