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.

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

Hey everyone,

So I'm a big fan of urban camping and travelling on a budget. If I'm not camping then I'll usually try to couchsurf since I've met a lot of cool people like this and experienced some great times.

I was looking for places to crash in the Bay Area and a friend of mine showed me this website http://www.fractalspaces.xyz/. I signed up and I'm waiting for a response. My…

Hello everyone,

I am trying to plan a road trip to the west coast (Las Vegas, Sf, La and more), we are a family with 2 kids (11 and 7)originally from FL , so theme parks interest us less..
I need help trying to build a route that will be fun and not to heavy on Nature, since we are not big on hiking. Though we are planning on a day trip the grand canyon.
We want to also add either Yosemite or Yellowstone or Idaho to this trip, but I can't decide which the kids would enjoy the most without us…

Hello guys.

I intend to visit Alaska, after a short trip in Canada. My first idea is to explore it from October 7th-17th.
One of the main purpose is to see the Nothern Lights. As far as I know it starts to appear at mid-September. Is it right?
That said, I have a few questions that would help a lot to plan my trip:
- I October a good month to visit Alaska and see the Northern Lights? Or it would be better to catch it in September?
- Does it rain a lot in October?
- What about the seasons? Is it…

I have been trying to purchase some (8) rail tickets using the Amtrak website. I am using an Australian credit card and, as far as I can work out, filling in the forms correctly. No error messages appear during the filling in of information process which seems simple enough..
However I keep getting an error reply when I reach the final page and attempt to confirm my ticket purchase.
I have repeated the process probably 8 or 10 times, cleared the cookies between attempts, used a couple of different…
