Is India for me?

Should I go or should I stay? My company offered me the opportunity to go on a business trip to India (Bengaluru) next year. The business stuff would take one week and I can then stay for another week or two on my own. The decision whether I'm going there or not is absolutely up to me. I have doubts. [more inside]

You know a dopp bag? I need one of those. But bigger. And AMAZING

I'm going to be traveling for an extended period. Like many months. So my usual travel dopp bag of toiletries and medicines isn't going to cut it. What I need is something that fits in a decent sized checked luggage bag AND which fits a dozen different OTC pill bottles and the same larger toiletry bottles and implements. But in a way I can get to. I'm willing to go high tech (new from Japan) or old school (vintage case that used to do X but now can do this). So what are my options here?

Next weekend, I'm visiting Vermont for the first time ever. I'll be flying into Manchester, NH, on Thursday, renting a car, and driving around solo for four days. My itinerary is open ended -- I just want to get a feel for the state, hopefully catch the leaves before they go brown, visit some small towns, and stuff myself with tasty food. The rough plan right now is to drive up to Montpelier and use that as a base to explore. Vermonters and those who know the lay of the land, do you have any tips for me? Any small towns I should visit or festivals I should be aware of? I happen to be a gay dude, so if there are any awesome gay bars, I'd love to know about them too. [more inside]

What is the best driving route from SLC, UT to the Grand Canyon?

We're going to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. There are three routes, all pretty similar in mileage. While I would like to make good time, scenery and road trip pit stops are high on my list. I've gone through the country before, so I know there are long stretches without any service. Wondering if anyone had something to recommend on any of these routes.
