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…

Hey there,

One city this time

Hi everyone,
Okay since my last trip had too much packed into it this time I'm going to use the entirety of 4-5 days to explore one city/area. I'm thinking San Francisco since I didn't get to see it very well and it was rainy the two days that I was there. But I am open to other suggestions as to what would be great this time of the year. I am also going to be traveling alone this time around so I want to really try to meet people and make friends. So I thought maybe I would stay at a hostel…

Hey all,

I'm hoping to connect with folks headed north from Bellingham on the AK Marine Highway. I'm trying to get my kayak shipped up, but it's not permitted to send it unaccompanied on the ferry. I was hoping someone wouldn't mind putting it on their reservation. I'm willing to contribute to your ferry fare for this favor. Thanks in advance!
