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…
In August 2014, I moved from Nova Scotia to Alberta. My mother accompanied on the cross-country drive in her old sedan and we had a great time, even if we were a little cramped!
Now that I've gotten settled and have purchased a compact SUV, we are thinking about taking a trip down the US West Coast.

We all enjoy hiking but no experience with anything on GC level with long steep inclines, ect. I need a little advice on kids shoes, we are most likely only doing South Kaibab to Cedar Ridge and it being only 3 miles do I need to spend $500 getting everyone good hiking boots or will trail runners/good nike tennis shoes be okay if we…
