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.

Hot Coffee, Mississippi

I just discovered there is a Hot Coffee in southern Mississippi. That's a cool name. Kansas has Gas which has a road sign that reads, "Don't blink, or you'll pass Gas." Arkansas has Romance, Joy and Toad Suck!
