      Has anyone here tried the free Uber ride from Nerdio here in Chicago? Heard from a pal that they also offer door-to-door Uber (with IT consultation, etc.) all for free. Has anyone tried it? Is it really free? Thanks!

    • 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

      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

      Requesting a suggested 4 day Colorado itinerary!

      by swdke Online Now Mar 14, 2012 at 6:21 AM

      I've just booked a flight to Colorado Springs for an extended weekend trip in August. Plan is to fly to Colorado Springs, arrive at 9 AM on a Friday. Returning home on following Monday, departing at 5:30 PM. This gives me from 9 AM Friday, all day Saturday, Sunday, and a good portion of the day on Monday. Basically, I see my itinerary has having 4 days, and 3 nights. I am looking for a suggested day by day itinerary, what to see/do, what towns to overnight in.

      I do know I want to take the cog railway up to Pikes Peak, and I want to do a drive through Rocky Mountain National Park. Also, interested in visiting either Aspen, or Summit County or both.

      Following is a list of attractions that I've noticed:

      •Pikes Peak
      •Rocky Mountain National Park/Estes Park
      •Seven falls
      •Garden of the Gods
      •Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine in Cripple Creek
      •US Mint tour
      •Coors Brewery Tour
      •Molly Brown House Muesum
      •Aspen
      •Summit County
      •Walk through Georgetown
      •Georgetown Loop Railroad
      •Glenwood Hot Springs

      With regards to the above sights and attractions, it's only just a list of possibilities. Perhaps too many considering I have only 4 days. Also, we are open to other suggested ideas too. The only things on the list that are a "must do" is Pikes Peak and Rocky Mountain National Park. Other than that, I'd like to fill our 4 days with as much sights as possible, or as much as realistically.

      Any suggestions for a day by day itinerary to see and do as much as possible?

      Thank you so much.
