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…

I am hoping to rent a camper van and head out to join the NODAPL protests in Standing Rock (about an hour from Bismarck) on Nov 13. I am not familiar with that part of the US and am hoping someone out there can advise me on the possible road conditions that time of year? Obviously weather cannot always be predicted but I wanted to get a feel for what may be in store for the journey considering I won't have 4WD.
Also- if you have been to standing rock, holler! I have a few other…
I was wondering if anyone can tell me if Angels Flight in Downtown LA is currently operating. When we were there last it was closed for renovations. My family and I want to go for a quick ride to experience something different while we are in the Downtown area for the day.
Thanks in advance for your help
Hello all, I'm about 95% sure I'll be NB hiking the AT starting sometimes in the first 2 wks of April. My conditioning is very good (I don't wanna jinx myself) and am hoping to complete in 4 months, barring injury. Right now I'll be doing it solo, but might be interested in having a partner to hike with. I've done a little hiking in the Himalayas and also the AT so I think I know what to expect. If someone might be interested in joining me please drop me a line and we can discuss it. Happy…
Hey everyone! I know there are dozens of threads on this subject (and I have gone through a lot of them to get to this tentative route) so I will do my best to be as specific as possible. My husband and I have about 11 -12 days in December (either the first or second week) and we would like to drive around the SW and W. We are both newer to the region (we moved from the East Coast in the last year) and would really liked to explore Utah, Arizona, and possibly some of NM or more of CO. Our…
So I'm leaving San Francisco on the 7th November and I'm heading to Vegas.
Id like to see Yosemite, is it worth going around this time?
Can I do it by car or can or should I do a tour?
I'm thinking if the Tioga Road becomes impassable I could just head back out and down!!
Is it worth it for me as I wont be packing too much winter equipment in my backpack as I'm heading Deep South
May be in Galveston end of November. Any advice on eating local? Perhaps a type of food I should be on the look-out for? I figure shrimp will be featured prominently. More interested in local ingredients or dishes rather than which restaurant. Although, if you have your fav eating/watering hole that would be great too.
