The landlord of my vacation rental just flaked on me. What can I do?

Earlier this year, I arranged to rent a beach house for a week in Rehoboth Beach, DE this summer. Yesterday, the owner contacted me to inform me that he was cancelling my reservation because he found a tenant who wanted to rent the house for the whole summer. At this point, my vacation is pretty much ruined, as I'm unlikely to find a comparable rental at a similar price this late in the year. What recourse (if any) do I have with the owners? Did they break any laws by doing this? [more inside]

Best backpacking guide... book, website, whatever!

I'm looking to start backpacking/rough camping this year, and I've had a hard time picking a guide. Can you recommend a book (preferred) or a website for this sort of thing? I've done some not-so-rough campground camping before, but it was alway drive-in camping. We'd love to start off with over nighters and work our way up from there. We don't know what type of pack/tent/gear to get at all. Bonus: guides for the tri-state (Philadelphia-New Jersey-Delaware) area camping/packing would be nice, too. Thanks!

Quiet beaches for a day trip from Baltimore?

Do you have any secret spots within an hour or so of Baltimore that you want to share with the entirety of the internets? Unlike previous AskMes, I don't want to go swimming, or deal with a billion tourists. I just want to go read a good book near the water for a day (ideally on a quiet beach, or in a park near a beach).

B&B in/or near Rehoboth Beach, DE?

Would like to drive from DC to Rehoboth Beach, DE on a Tuesday and come back on a Wednesday, staying in a B&B overnight (at the end of July.) Can't find a B&B in that area that allows people to stay for one night instead of two. Do you know of a decent B&B in Delaware near the beach/ocean that would allow two people to stay one night?

roughly 65% of my memories of growing up involve this car.

Sentimental old crouton car filter: 1985 Pontiac Parisienne, north Delaware area. Stored in garage, but hasn't run for years. I'd like to see it go to a better use than junked so that a random non-profit can make a few bucks selling it to be squished at a junk yard. [more inside]

Where to stay in Rehoboth Beach, DE in the winter?

The BF and I are planning a 1 or 2 night trip from Philly to Rehoboth Beach in December or January as a holiday getaway (and to visit the Dogfish Head Brewery). We're looking for somewhere to stay that would be both affordable and cozy for a winter weekend, and preferably something within walking distance of the boardwalk. We like inns and B&Bs over hotel/motel chains, and have searched google but would love some more personal recommendations. Anyone have advice for somewhere nice, with character, for under $150 per night? Also, any suggestions for other activities to do in the area? Will the boardwalk still be active that time of year?

A question about a short sale in Delaware.

My sister is going through a short sale in the state of Delaware. She's received two offers. One is fairly conventional, the person will put down 25% and finance the rest. He's offered $120k. The other offer is all cash, as is, no contingencies - but only $93,000. [more inside]

Places to live near Newark, DE

I'm moving soon to the Newark, DE region for a job, and I would like to know about the best places to live in the area. I don't know anything about the region; I don't even know if Newark itself is a fun place to live (is it?). I currently live in Boston and would prefer a semi-urban environment to an urban one. I'm willing to commute a bit if necessary; for example, one idea is to live closer to Philly, but if I did that, would traffic be bad? I would be going the opposite direction of most commuters, I think.
