Hi! My girlfriend and I are trying to get a head start on planning for the total solar eclipse that will pass over a good swath of North America on April 8, 2024. How can we book travel plans as early as possible? [more inside]
I have a 2011 Nissan Versa with 101k miles. It's in good condition, but needs some work on the front suspension. The thought of selling it privately gives me significant anxiety, so I thought about selling through CarMax or a similar place. I'd love to hear experiences from MeFites that have sold in this manner. [more inside]
I have a 2009 Ford Escape with an intermittent loss of power steering due to an electrical issue. There was a recall, but Ford won’t fix it anymore. My local trusted shop is saying that it’s going to cost 2200-2700. It’s worth around 4500. I have already bought a new car to replace it. What to do? [more inside]
I'd like to step deeply into a different spiritual place for a few weeks in November in East Asia -- What specific venues take in foreigners who want to be amateur, yet dedicated practitioners? [more inside]
This may be a fool's errand but it's worth a shot. A friend's favorite ice cream is at Milk Cow in the bay area. They live in LA. IS there any way to put it in a cooler and keep it for five or so hours for the drive? Crazy ideas welcomed.
I am considering traveling to California in May to the San Francisco area. The current plan is to fly in and rent a car to drive up the coast. I seem to have read somewhere (though I can't find it now) that California was requiring a 10 day quarantine for persons arriving at the airport. I would not want to travel there if this is the case. I have been fully vaccinated and would, of course, be masked and observe all the usual precautions. What are the current restrictions? Is this trip even feasible?
In my city (Columbia, SC) I am always seeing neutral colored, newish Tahoes with some subtle white LED lights in the grille and also usually a vertical white LED light either side of the license plate. They can't all be undercover police... are they EMT's/firefighters? Something else? I've literally never seen them using the lights but I see one or two a day on my commute.
In the very early stages of planning a trip to Utah/Colorado in June. Planning to go to Zion and some combination of Moab/Capitol Reef/Bryce/Grand Escalante. Then Colorado. More details inside. [more inside]
I plan my travels by flight deals. What are your favorite newsletters/apps/subscription alerts that provide truly good flight deals from a chosen destination to anywhere in the world? That is, no entering specific dates or destinations, just cheap flights from X to anywhere. I know of Scott's Cheap Flights, but the other ones I find through Googling either seem sketch or I'm not sure how good the deals actually are.
Whelp, my 2007 Honda Fit with the problems starting seems to need replacing. Is it worth replacing with a 2019 one given winter weather? [more inside]
As a means of preserving my sanity while the long tail of this pandemic plays out interminably, I'm starting to daydream/plan a short, sweet coastal getaway for partner, me, and our two doofy dogs for....late spring? early summer? mid-fall?? whenever things are safe and open again!! Given that very vague timeline, where should we go? Wish list inside! [more inside]
Calling all twitchers -- can you tell me the field guides (to anywhere in the world) that you like best for serious bird watching?
We are looking for a safe, clean hotel in Nashville. Have you stayed in either downtown or the Brentwood area? We are looking for about 120 to 220 per night (our price range). [more inside]
Where should I move in the West? [more inside]
I want to travel from the US to Prague in October 2021. Is this a pipe dream? [more inside]
We are going to book a cabin/Phantom Ranch, down the Grand Canyon. [more inside]
Miami area swimming beaches/shores that are 1) very peaceful isolated vibe, not party vibe and 2) walkable from some lodging that's not luxe priced? Especially in lowish-season winter, such as early or mid Jan? (I see Miami's lowest sea temps are around 70F, which is fine; I'm used to wild swimming down to 58F or so, and I welcome but don't need a lifeguard.)
Does someone have a suggestion for shipping a couple of *flat* movie posters from Toronto to Victoria, B.C.? I was hoping to pay up to $200*, but I understand that hoping is often forlorn. [more inside]
Looking for the most south point for a temperate summer. [more inside]
I've been doing a lot of hiking this past year, and I have come to especially appreciate the kind of hike that you can do before lunch and still have time and energy left to do other stuff in the afternoon (work, sightsee, even do another hike). So like, a chill 2-3 hour hike, not too hard. What are your very favorite short hikes in North America? [more inside]
