      Hello fellow traveler! We will be traveling to Colorado during the 2nd week of August for our first time. We will be renting a cabin for only 2 night in  Estes Park.

      1) Are there any recommendation of specific lodges to rent for the 2 nights? There will be 4 of us, not looking for anything too fancy or expensive because we would like to maximize our time outdoors.

      2) Is there anything specific you would recommend as a "must do" while in Estes Park and National Mountain Rocky Park?

      Any other recommendations would be greatly appreciated!

    • Are there any good coffee shops in Fort Lauderdale other than Starbucks?

      Fort Lauderdale May 7, 2015 at 1:30 PM

      Hello,

      I am from Tampa and will be heading to Fort Lauderdale in a couple of weeks. I usually enjoy independent coffee shops that offer fresh roasted small batch coffee brewed through a French press. I have done some research on yelp and came up with a few local places. If anyone else knows of a good spot please let me know. Here is what I found:

      Sip Java Co - (formally Brew Urban Café) @ 638 N Federal Highway Fort Lauderdale FL. I heard that they carry Intelligentsia, Anodyne and Wells Coffee (all small roasted batches from around the world and you can brew them with a few different methods). Free wifi and good snacks or all day food offerings, tons of seating indoors and outdoors. Very quiet with free parking out front.

      Brew Urban Café - 537 NW 1st Avenue in the art district. They are located in an art studio called C&I studios. Quiet and good locally roasted coffee too.

      Warsaw Coffee Company - 245 E 13th St Fort Lauderdale FL. New coffee shop with lots of seating. They also offer locally roasted coffee from Argyle and have a bakery which pumps out some original and unique pastries. A little more on the pricey side of things and parking is limited.

      The Alchemist - They are located in Wilton Manors which is about a 15 minute drive from Fort Lauderdale. They have a good variety of coffee and pump out some good sandwiches.

      These are some of the best places to enjoy coffee. If you all have any additional info please reply!

    • Commuting Orlando to Auburndale / Lakeland

      Orlando May 4, 2015 at 7:57 AM

      Hello,

      I've yet to find a good answer to this question.

      I will be starting a new job in Auburndale, FL and planned to commute from the north side of Orlando (near I-4). I understand I-4 could potentially be a nightmare during rush hour, but does it depend on the direction you're going?

      Traveling south (I-4 W) during morning traffic and north (I-4 E) in afternoon traffic. Will I generally be going against heavy traffic? Estimated time typically says near 1 hour. Would you expect this to be higher, or relatively accurate?

      I appreciate any insight you could offer...Thanks!

    • Unidentified Giant Beetle in Albuquerque

      New Mexico Jun 1, 2015 at 2:16 AM

      Something may have gone wrong with my previous post ... I'll try again.
      While I was on holiday in the Southwest in 2010, I had a bus transfer in Albuquerque. I had a smoke outside the station and saw a huge, huge beetle that was slowly crowling forward. I always believed it was some sort of a giant cockroach, but I can't find anything on the internet that even looks like it. Since I took no pictures, people have a hard time believing it... but I know what I saw. Can anyone tell me more about this giant insect?! It must have been about 11 inches long.

      Hi all,

      I'm going to be at the convention center for a few days, but can't handle the prices of the hotels nearby. I won't have a car, so could you recommend a neighborhood outside of the pricey area where I can find a reasonable ($55-85)hotel and either a bus, shuttle, or cheap taxi ride in and out of downtown each day? I was originally thinking of the University area, but that looks maybe a bit far away. But I've never been to Charlotte, so I'm relying on the experts.
      Thanks so much for your help!

      I'm driving from western New York to South Carolina and probably taking I-81 and I-77 in part to avoid Washington. However, I'm afraid the timing will have me in Charlotte at rush hour. Maybe I can arrive before it hits. Would traffic on I-77 southbound be heavy between 3 and 5 p.m.? I'm thinking that's largely the reverse commute but then when we pass the city proper we'd be in the heading-home direction. Any advice? Thanks!
