USA branch FAQ

This branch covers: Mainland USA, Hawaii & Alaska

So many posts request the impossible - that a bunch of people who have never met you magically intuit how much you have to spend and what will make you happy on vacation, generally planning out your route for three months and helping you get discount flight reservations.

So, what can you do to get great travel advice?

1. Do your homework
The web is filled with basic information like how far it is from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon, or how to…

Hi, we will have two weeks in California beginning of May with two kids (4 and 6 years). We start in San Francisco and plan to see both some nature (parks) and beaches (more south, Santa Barbara or San Diego).

For this nature part, we consider Yosemite or Sequoia but still have some doubts regarding which one to choose (or both?). Any comments or adivces?

thx a lot!

Hi there,
I will be venturing on a three week hike in the Brooks range with five others.
For the food drop and for our backpacks we need a small armada of bear barrels.
Buying those seems pointless as we will not need them in the future and we cannot even take them back on the airplane we were hoping to be able to rent them.

Does anyone know whether it possible to rent these things in anchorage?

We start from Kotzebue so if rental is available there that is also fine.

Hi, I'm planning to visit Yosemite in one day in September. I'm thinking about sleeping outside the park the day before and in the evening drive through Tioga Pass and sleep to Bridgeport or June Lake, as I am visiting Bodie the next day. I'm not sure in which city to sleep the day before (I'll be driving from San Francisco). Do you think it would be possible to visit Yosemite and driving through Tioga Pass the same day? Probably I should leave before down but it won't be a problem to get up…

Alaska

Hi Everyone,

I'm wondering if anyone has ever thought about, or is actively planning, giving up job etc and moving family to the wilderness, say Alaska.

One family did it, which you can read here....
