Why am I getting so many Airbnb rejections from hosts?
My girlfriend and I have spent several hours picking out places to stay from AirBNB listings in Copenhagen. It SEEMS like there are so many wonderful, available places to stay. But my booking requests (5 so far) have all been declined by the hosts. What's going on here? How do I get a successful booking? [more inside]

All the hotels are FULL ON TUESDAY
All the hotels in my area are booked solid on Tuesday night, full to capacity. I don't hotel often, but this strikes me as unusual. Why Tuesday?

What is the best option for an air travel gift card?
What is the best way to give a gift card to help pay for plane tickets for domestic US travel? It can't tie the recipient down to a particular airline and it must be a gift card, so please don't tell me to give cash. That would obviously be best.

How do I find good airfare for a three-leg journey?
My wife and I will be flying with our daughter for the first time this fall, on a cross-country journey to see grandparents and relatives who haven't met her yet. We'll be traveling from Seattle to Pittsburgh to Minneapolis and back home to Seattle, staying a few days at each stop. The plan is set--now I just need to buy the plane tickets, and I don't know how to go about finding the best deal. [more inside]

A Place to Sleep in Sleepy Hollow?
I've hatched a half-hiking half-not trip - taking a train from New York all the way up to the beginning of the Old Croton Aqueduct Trail, and hiking the whole thing back down to New York City. But I'm gonna take two days to do it, and am looking for a cheap hotel halfway along - in Tarrytown, Sleepy Hollow, or thereabouts. Any suggestions for a hotel? [more inside]

How can I get rid of a time share?
I have a time share I want to get rid of. I don't care about getting back any of my "investment." I just want to get rid of the thing. Getting a bit of money for it would be nice.

Is Greyhound shipping too good to be true?
Greyhound shipping seems to be a hell of a lot cheaper than the other options I've seen for shipping furniture. Is it for real, and will my stuff really arrive in one piece without much damage? [more inside]

PHL connection time?
On Thanksgiving Wednesday, we'll arrive at the Philadelphia airport, probably at terminal F (US Airways) at 8:15 in the morning. We leave 80 minutes later, probably from terminal B (US Airways, again). No checked luggage, pre-cleared for customs, just pick up bags and run. Given Thanksgiving craziness and picking up the shuttle to C-16 so we stay inside security, is this still doable? When does it become Thanksgiving hectic? [more inside]

Will good Fall color extend into October in Telluride, CO
My wife and I had to move our road trip to the Telluride area back a couple of weeks to the first week of October. I'm worried that we will be greeted with bare aspen trees! I know that the timing of peak color can change from year to year, so I realize that any advice is just a best guess. So, are we in luck? Thanks!

DC Taxi with a Baby?
If you're flying in to Reagan National Airport in DC with a baby and your own car seat, how do you get a cab to your hotel? Will the regular cabs at the cab stand be able to accommodate you, or should you reserve a car service or cab ahead of time? If the latter, can you recommend a company? [more inside]
