    • Gyms/health clubs in Princeville

      Kauai Aug 7, 2016 at 7:36 PM

      Maybe I'm being a bit optimistic, but I plan on going to the gym during my Kauai vacation. Will be staying in a condo in Princeville. A google search turns up gyms in Kapaa, but none in Princeville. The nearby hotels require the purchase of a day pass to use their gyms, but it isn't worth the money ($50 - $250/day) considering all I want to do is use the gym. Does anyone know of any gyms in Princeville/Hanalei? Thank you!

    • Vehicle crossing into US

      Laredo Aug 25, 2016 at 9:04 PM

      I would like to take a Mexican car into the US at the Laredo border crossing. What paperwork do I need to complete? Any handy hints? The car is not currently registered and is for export from Galveston within 30 days of crossing into the US, which I think is OK under the US temporary import rules.

      Also, can I hire a trailer and car in the US and cross into Mexico and back out again to the US, or is this just asking for a world of hurt? I'm not even sure US hire companies would even allow their cars to exit the country, even temporarily!

      Cheers

      National Parks in Alabama

      United States of America Aug 15, 2016 at 2:35 AM

      Hi all,

      Can you give me a few Nat'l Parks, very nice ones, for Alabama? I will be camping the gulf coast this winter.

      I like to stick along the shores as much as possible, but don't have to. I am looking for something diverse with marshes, good birding, a lot of beauty. If the are inland, that will have to do.

      I understand it will be cold most likely.

    • Which Dive Site is better

      Florida Aug 7, 2016 at 6:42 PM

      Looking for some advice.... For snuba and snorkling, which is better? Duck Key or Sombrero Reef

      I was looking at doing a charter..

      (1) http://www.diveduckkey.com/

      Dive Duck Key has their own sites they go to and apparently dont have another dive shop within 10 miles of their shop. Seems the wild life is kinda slack and you mostly see sand and rock.. not much coral and fish etc. I at least gather this info by watching youtube videos of dives at this site. Am I wrong? Is it worth it?

      (2) http://www.tildensscubacenter.com/

      I was looking at this charter as well which goes to Sombrero Reef. Sombrero Reef seems more lively but is also more packed.

      Which one do yall recommend. Thank you

      Also we were looking at snorkeling with http://keysdiver.com/index.htm ... the 3 stop trip. Does anyone have any experience with this trip? Thank you

      Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions for a good value for money travel insurance which will cover us for 3 days of skiing? Most companies I've found will only do snow sports cover for the whole trip which makes it insanely expensive, especially given we only need the cover for three days out of our 4 week trip.

      Help for a weekend - central without car, taxi ok

      by nomad7890 Online Now May 10, 2010 at 11:46 AM

      I am meeting a friend in Cincinnati and need to plan a few activites but without a car. Objective is to have some place to chat, while doing a little sight seeing. Would also enjoy attending mass at the St. Peter in Chains Cathedral ... so - please keep in mind distance- taxi ok, public transp. ok too.

      - what is a good place to stay (I saw the Marriott, is this in an OK neighborhood?) - or a similar place

      - What is a good breakfast/brunch place? I think a big lunch would be good.

      - Looked at Eden park for a stroll - are there nice quiet places but not too secluded places to sit there?

      - What about Carew Tower?

      - How far is the ball park from there - and is it open daily for tours?

      - How far is the Union Terminal from there - I just want to see the building.

      - What would be a nice but inexpensive place for dinner? American food, steak OK - nice, not stuffy, and most of all, fairly quiet - need to be able to have a good conversation.

      - What would you recommend after dinner?

      ok, too many questions. Don't want to make it too busy, mainly have a little activity, lots of opportunity to sit down and chat with as little heat and as much peace and quiet as possible, and a nice inexpensive meal at the end.

      Howdy,

      I’ll be attending a vocational training course in Lawrenceburg, Indiana during the month of March.

      Can anyone recommend a decent budget hotel for this long term stay? I don’t need a pool or fitness center or anything like that; just a clean room in a safe area within a 30 minute commute of Lawrenceburg. Also, I just need a table for my homework and possibly a refrigerator for some munchies.

      I posted on craigslist.com but only got shared room responses. Not really interested in that but a short term studio apartment rental would be great.

      Thanks

    • How far is the dometic airport from the International airport?

      by bgates Online Now Nov 17, 2005 at 8:34 PM

      Hi, My flight from Paris transits at Cincinnati and I have to catch another flight to Minneapolis. Is the domestic airport different from the international airport? If yes, how far is it? Is there arrangement for airport transfers?

      Thanks.

      35 minutes for transfer at Cincinnati Airport

      by christine.j Online Now Sep 7, 2005 at 6:53 AM

      My son needs to go to the US for a short trip to the East and West coast. The travel agency made him a offer which sounds good, but:
      The last leg of his trip will be from San Francisco to Cincinnati, then to Frankfurt. Both flights are with Delta, but there are just 35 minutes between landing and take off again. I don't know Cincinnati Airport, but to me that seems to be impossible. He can check his bags through, but usually the gates close 30 minutes before take off. Do you think there's a reliable chance for him top catch his flight? He has to decide by tomorrow if he books the flights.
      Thanks for any help.

      How about meeting us and CoAir13 (Jen and Ethan) for dinner, Thursday, August 4.

      CoAir13 (Jen and Ethan) will be visiting with us for a couple of days the first week in August, so we are inviting other Cincinnati/Dayton area VTers to meet us for dinner on Thursday evening, August 4, 6:00 p.m. at El Rancho Grande in Sharonville. It's easy to find, at 11765 Lebanon Road, just south of the Sharonville exit off i-275, between I-75 and I-71. You can sign up at the posting I have made in the VT meetings section. I know it's a week night, but many of you should still be able to make it. Let's get together, meet, and welcome Jen and Ethan to our corner of Ohio. The more the merrier.
