Can anyone tell me (and others who are new) what "DIF" stands for? From the posts I have read in the last year, it's an anacronym for "missing Hedo so bad that you are in pain",
but why "DIF" ? I am sure it is something very obvious, and when I find out what it is, I will be really embarassed that I asked!! But oh well, I am dying to know!!
Thanks for the info!
Cowgirl,
heading back to Hedo Aug. 13th!

DIF is the abbreviation for "Dreaded Island Fever"- I am not sure of its origin (been around since we started going in 2003)- but it is definitely an apt term as it does feel like an illness at times....

Ray Ousley, a deceased man who used to go to Hedo a lot, coined it, from what I've been told.

They call it "Dreaded Island Fever" but the definition you used is a more accurate description.

awesome!!

once you get it you have constant terms of re-emergence. Its always hanging around. In YOUR case....i hope you have DIF for a really really long time...as your first day at hedo...will be my first day home from hedo...and that is the ONE thing I am NOT looking forward to on this upcoming trip!!


Boston MikeandPatty .... Next trip Aug 20 thru 30 2012!! Can't get here soon enough!! Looking for a good daily laugh? http://www.facebook.com/pages/Pattys-Got-the-Doodles/250358581695863

Thanks to everyone for the responses.
Ginny, I followed the link you provided and was delighted with the full page definition of DIF.
I grew up the Caribbean, so I was afflicted with DIF at a young age. Luckily, my husband has caught the disease from me and we eagerly plan our trips to the islands!
