Wound up with a 2008 Suzuki SX4, FWD, 110k miles due to a long story that isn't relevant. Entered a car nightmare, and I need a plan for what to do next. I am confused, stressed out and too drugged up for this. [more inside]

San Jose, CA- Apparently not the coolest place to live.

I'm likely moving to California at the start of October. Recently, the location has tentatively changed to San Jose. I don't want this to happen, so please convince me that San Jose is the worst place ever, or give me some reasons for why it's really not that bad. [more inside]

Travelling from Canada to U.S. while pregnant

My wife and I are planning to travel from Ontario, Canada to Seattle this coming week. My wife is 6 months pregnant and she's heard some things about needing documentation about being insured for pregnancy related health issues and that if she doesn't have such documentation, she could be turned away at the U.S. Customs check. Does anyone know if this is true or not? What kind of documentation does she need to bring with her?

Tipping in the Galapagos

My friend and I have had a fantastic 50th birthday vacation in the Galapagos (without luggage, but that's a different story!). We've been staying a boutique hotel. The staff had not only cleaned our room but provided us with breakfast and about half of our dinners. What's the appropriate amount to tip? Searches suggest $1 per day for cleaning staff, but that doesn't seem like enough.

What beach on Tomales Bay should we kayak camp at?

Yay, the wife has scored a kayak camping permit for Tomales Bay, California a couple weekends from now. We've paddled in TB a few times (including the highly recommended bioluminescence tour), but never camped overnight. The permit isn't tied to any one site, and apparently they're first come first serve. Can anyone here recommend a beach that they particularly enjoyed camping at?

the olympics!

We (two humans + our dog master) had loosely planned to take the ferry from Victoria to Port Angeles next week and spend 5 days roadtripping around the Olympic Peninsula, but the park itself isn't very dog friendly. Is it worth going over anyways and checking out other spots? Anyone spent time out there with a dog, recommendations on places to explore? [more inside]

Jacksonville in March - Zika fears?

I'm looking into going on a trip to Jacksonville in March. I plan on having a child in the next few years so zika is a real concern for me. How worried should I be about this? Any articles on the likelihood of it spreading from Miami or anything to either ease my mind or confirm my concern would be appreciated. I have to book the trip now so I am trying to be as informed as possible.
