How feasible is hammock camping in California?

I'm planning a bike tour from Portland to San Francisco via the coast and would ideally like to sleep in a hammock the whole way, but I've noticed online that some California state parks explicitly forbid it. How prevalent is this kind of policy? [more inside]

Oregon title for California car?

I bought my car in Oregon, then moved to California while it still had a few payments on it and registered it here. After I paid it off, I received the Oregon title in the mail. Now I want to sell it, but I never got a California title. Did I screw up? [more inside]

Help me plan my stay in NYC this summer with kids (Please)

What area of NYC should we stay in? What's the best way to get from the airport to the hotel? Is there anything I should consider about where to rent a car from? (That last one seems like an odd question but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. Our plan is to get a car and leave the evening of the last day, drive south for 3 or so hours and get a hotel and then do the rest of the trip.) [more inside]

Doing business in Uganda

A friend of mine will be on the ground in Uganda near Fort Portal. He'll be there as a business representative for a small company. He has reason to trust the company he'll be meeting with and the U.S. State Department advisory for Uganda is remarkably mild, so perhaps there's nothing to worry about. I certainly wouldn't blink at being a tourist there, but a businessman seems more like a target somehow. Is it worth hiring a bodyguard?

Staying in Notting Hill, London for 3 days - what to do, EAT?

We're not huge on museums, but wouldn't necessarily pass up the British Museum. But what else should we do? mid-June. Using the "tube." Where should we walk? Where should we EAT? We live in NYC and eat in plenty of "good" restaurants so aren't looking for e.g some famous French chef's outpost in London. More "authentic" (what is that, anyway? no idea). Any place you particularly love? Is it silly to take a train to Oxford or Brighton one day?

Why does my EZ Pass work only sporadically in a rental car?

When I rent a car (always from Avis) I take my own EZ Pass. Inevitably I get a bill from Avis for tolls that EZ Pass charged to the car instead of to my EZ Pass transponder. I would like this to stop happening. [more inside]

Last minute travel advice—Italy and Portugal

Ok! So I have progress on my walkabout plans, (sorry I don’t know how to link to my previous related question). I am going on a meditation retreat in Assisi, Italy for a week, then another week in Italy and then two weeks in Portugal. I’m leaving in two weeks, egads! If you have any suggestions for a mellow middle aged lady of places to stroll, or things to visit or lovely places to eat near Assisi, or Florence or anywhere in Portugal, I’m all ears :)

Will people think I'm a sketchy guy for visiting Thailand?

I've always wanted to visit Thailand, and I finally have the time and money to do it. Only problem? I'm a single dude in his early 40s, and I'm worried that people (e.g. dates) will assume I went there for sleazy/sketchy reasons. Is this really something I need to worry about? And if so, is there a way to mitigate this? [more inside]
