This summer I will be travelling to K2 base camp with a dear old friend. I realise that with all the geopolitics happening, it isn't an ideal moment for this trip, but we've been planning it for literally years and since Skardu is safe enough at the moment we're still going.

(Please don't try to talk me out of going.) [more inside]

In April, I'm going to be going to DC and the surrounding areas with my dad for a week. What are some must-see things to visit there, and along the way back to Massachusetts? We're definitely going to tour the museums (as I love to see art up close and my dad's a history buff) but other than that we're a little fuzzy on the particulars. More details under the cut.

Family BlahLaLa will be in NYC in a few weeks and I'd really like to go do something at Trump Tower. Yell at it? Spit at it? Hold up a sign? New Yorkers and other knowledgeable folks, what say you?

Hello, AskMeFi! Recently, I was given generous notice by my main client that my services will not be required from Friday, April 28th through Thursday, May 4th 2017; as they need travel out of state. This is significant news, as it will be the first I have had off in over two years of working ludicrous hours, seven days per week.

Are these routes still under construction? [more inside]
