Design the perfect dog friendly day in Point Reyes

Coming from Tahoe via Vallejo. Probably sometime in the next few weekends. Assume I have about 4 hours once I arrive at the visitor center. Prettiest, easy to get to dog friendly beach (I have a 12 year old little mutt, still spry but not ready for a killer hike)? Better to go on a Sunday than on a Sunday? Any must do cheap eats?

Curbside Check in at O'Hare for Delta?

I'm having no joy getting answers to this: is there curbside check-in at Chicago O'Hare for Delta? My wife is on a flight on Monday, and will be arriving by cab, and currently has a foot problem which means she can't lug her luggage inside.

Need a bike for 2 weeks in NYC - rent or buy?

I'm going to NYC June 23 to July 7 and need a bicycle for that period. Last time I rented one on Spinlister, which worked great, but still cost $250-ish. I wonder if it's worth buying a 2nd hand ride and reselling it on the last day. If so, where? [more inside]

Hotels in the city centers of Stockholm, Copenhagen, and Oslo

Heya. The wife and I are staying for two nights in each of Stockholm, Copenhagen, and Oslo. We'd like something very centrally located and though we'd pay more to stay somewhere nice/cool, price is a little bit of a concern. Don't want to sacrifice comfort, though. Any tips from you guys?

moving tips?

My mom is moving from a small town 45+ miles outside of Atlanta to a suburb of Atlanta. We're looking at best ways to move her - neither she nor I can move all the furniture/boxes, so we're looking at movers. Due to her location in a small town, there aren't many local moving services/local labor sources. Any tips or tricks that I might not be thinking of? [more inside]

Attending AA meetings in Delhi and Mumbai for a visitor!

Attending AA meetings in Delhi and Mumbai for a visitor! Hi, I was asked this by someone going to India for a couple of weeks. I know there are meetings in both places but the question was "How easy/difficult is it if you are an American Woman visiting and want to go to a meeting?" This completely floored me as I had NO idea how women friendly meetings are in India, especially if you are a White woman. Please don't impute any racist undercurrents to my query. I am an Indian man myself, and I know first hand how tourists, especially white women, get harassed by all and sundry. I was curious if any Mefiers have any suggestions or experiences that I can pass along to my friend. Thanks.

Danish people, I have questions

My partner and I potentially have the opportunity to relocate to the Aarhus area of Denmark for six months. This would be part of an exchange program based at VIA University College in Horsens for me and potentially a little more ad-hoc for her. We have a whole bunch of questions about Denmark, Jutland, Aarhus, accomodation, commuting and other things. [more inside]

Safe DIY seatbelt replacement? Difficulty level: pretensioner

Dog chewed partway through the seat belts on a 2000 Toyota Corolla. I got original Toyota replacement seat belts shipped from a salvage yard across the country. I know I can replace the belt assembly, but I'm wondering about the pretensioner. The replacement belts came with an intact pretensioner, with the wires cut off. Can I safely swap out the pretensioner connection? (that photo is of my exact replacement part). It's a yellow connector that seems held in place. What is it connected to? Can I just pull it out and shove my car's existing connector in? I'm planning to disconnect the battery before doing this work, but I know the pretensioner is an explosive device and I want to be cautious.

RoRo's Big Adventure

Dearest Mefites of the USA, my 21 yo daughter is planning to galavant around your country this Northern Hemisphere summer, and we'd like your input! Any advice/recommendations for things to see, places to go, how to get there, accommodation, etc appreciated. We're yet to book flights, leaving everything pretty much to the last minute.

What are some good alternative conferences or festivals for thinkers?

I want to take a vacation that includes some sort of intellectual festival or conference where I'll meet interesting people and discuss ideas. (I'm a party animal.) Think TED gone to summer camp or Davos for hipsters ;-) The Do Lectures and Porcupine Freedom Festival both sound massively interesting - what other events should I look into? [more inside]
